About the Temenos Institute and C.G. Jung Education Center

The word “Temenos" comes from the Greek language and refers to the sacred precinct where drama was performed for the purpose of what we today would call spiritual, emotional and psychological transformation.

Founded in 1976 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization, Temenos Institute Inc. provides separate, yet related, services to the public, including the following:

An outpatient psychiatric clinic, licensed by the State of Connecticut, offers individual, couple, family and group psychotherapy on a sliding fee scale.

The Fairfield County Jung Society at the Temenos Institute sponsors lectures and courses about the work of C.G. Jung and Jungian application to a number of topics. The events at the Temenos Institute add a social dimension for those who enjoy meeting informally with others to share their interest in the thought and work of C.G. Jung, Jungian analysis is available through the Executive Director at Temenos Institute.

Workshops, lectures, films and courses are offered at Temenos. All are open to the public and we are particularly delighted to welcome new attendees and participants; professionals, students or educators, or someone purely interested in Jungian studies.

Dear Friends of Dr. Jung,

What would Dr. Jung have thought of the Internet? 

I would pose this question to all of our visitors on this site, as I find it a fascinating one -- certainly as there is now a growing global sharing of collective experiences and access to a new universe of ideas. 

Welcome to the Temenos Institute website.  In addition to being the only state licensed psychiatric service in the Fairfield Connecticut area, the Temenos Institute is a global center for learning and study based on the work of C. G. Jung.

We are always adding links on our website to other sites which have been created by Jungian therapists, academic institutions, associations, and students of Dr. Jung around the world that offer services, books and resources based on Jungian studies.  We welcome links to other centers of Jungian studies and therapy wherever they may be around the world. 

     Browse through the Album of our 2007 Temenos trip to Zurich, Vienna and Prague on the 100th anniversary of the first meeting of Jung and Freud. We learned a lot, had a great time and have the photos to prove it. If you have a copy of Aniela Jaffe's Memories, Dreams, Reflections, pick it up again. In Chapter VIII entitled The Tower, Jung himself will narrate and take you on a guided tour of his Bollingen Tower while you scroll through the photos we took during our private tour of Jung's Bollingen retreat.
