Welcome to the Boulder Friends of Jung
The Boulder Friends of Jung was founded as a non-profit volunteer organization on December 19, 2005 under the laws of the State of Colorado. The purpose of this educational organization is to provide informational and participatory programs oriented to the depth psychology of Carl Jung as it relates to personal development and contemporary society.
Please see our current lectures and workshops.
The BFJ logo features the symbol of the uroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. “In the age old image of the uroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the most astute alchemists that the prima materia of the art was man himself. The uroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e., of the shadow. This ‘feed-back’ process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the uroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the prima materia which, as a projection, unquestionably stems from man’s unconscious.” (C. G. Jung, Collected Works Vol. 14, par. 513)
