For more than fifty years, The Jung Center has served as a nonprofit resource unique to Houston—a forum for dynamic conversations on a diverse range of psychological, artistic, and spiritual topics. Our mission is to support the development of greater self-awareness, creative expression, and psychological insight—individually, in relationships, and within the community. The Jung Center provides pathways to find a deeper meaning in everyday life.
Founded in 1958, The C. G. Jung Educational Center of Houston, Texas, Inc. is a nonprofit educational institution dedicated to continuing education for the human spirit through psychology, spirituality, and the arts and humanities. Our educational and outreach programs enrich lives and enlighten the spirit. Our classes promote a journey of personal growth and a deepening commitment to the community we share.
The Center offers a wide variety of programs taught by Jungian experts and other professionals in the disciplines of psychology, spirituality, education, the humanities, and the arts. Our programs are offered in three semesters each year.
The Center’s curriculum offers a range of educational topics ranging from building healthy relationships to ethics to meditation (other options cover areas such as parenting, writing, finding meaning in everyday life, and tai chi). Classes typically meet once a week and range from two to twelve weeks in length.
Lectures feature topics similar to our course offerings such as ethics in the twenty-first century, creativity, and emotional and spiritual health. This format serves those who may not have the time to commit to a semester course and take place over one day, evening, or weekend.
Founded in 2015, The McMillan Institute for Jungian Studies hosts local and online educational experiences that advance C.G. Jung’s exploration of the frontiers of the human soul. The Institute is the new home of the Fay Lectures.
A wide range of programs with continuing education credit for mental health professionals are offered every semester.
Beginning in 2015, The Jung Center will offer a growing number of educational experiences online, many of them accredited as continuing education for mental health professionals.
