Lara Newton, M.A. is a senior Jungian Analyst in private practice in Denver. President of the C.G. Jung Society of Colorado (in Denver) since 1996, she is Director of Training for the C.G. Jung Institute of Colorado. Lara earned a masters degree in English literature before studying at the Jung Institute in Zurich (1980). She then returned to the U.S., completed a masters degree in psychology and resumed her formal Jungian training with the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analyst from which she received her diploma as a Jungian analyst in 1993.
Lara’s thesis for IRSJA was on the brother-sister relationship with a focus on animus development in women who had been deeply affected by their relationships with their brothers. Work on that writing began in the late 1980’s, culminating in her book titled, Brothers and Sisters: Discovering the Psychology of Companionship. Her most recent studies have focused on Jung’s work with alchemy, the female alchemist known as Maria Prophetissa, and Celtic Mythology.
