The Job Archetype: Encounter with the Self (Online Presentation)
Presentation by: Diplomate Jungian Analyst Alan Drymala, LPC
Jung’s landmark essay, Answer to Job, examines “God’s effect on man, and man’s effect on God”, or the mutual transformation of the Self and human consciousness. In this controversial work, he provides a depth psychological look at the “Job experience” and describes the evolution of the God-image from the Yahwistic era to modern times and the Assumptio Mariae. It is Jung at his best.
This lecture will consider the importance of Answer to Job for modern consciousness and focus in on what Edward Edinger calls the “Job archetype”, a particular experience of the Self which initiates this deeper psychic development.
Presenter information: Alan Drymala, LPC, is a Diplomate Jungian Analyst and graduate of the Research and Training Centre for Depth Psychology in Zurich, Switzerland. He is currently establishing an analytical practice in Colorado Springs and has a passion for continuing the wisdom tradition of Jung through individual analysis, dream groups, and Jungian reading groups. His Diploma thesis examines the transformative power of Eros in the Rosarium Philosophorum and the Pretiosissimum Donum Dei, both 15th-16th century alchemical texts.

Study group – “Approaching the Unconscious”
Facilitated by Nancy E. Winford, LPC
The collection of essays in Man and His Symbols endeavored to present C.G. Jung’s psychology in a way that was “…intelligible and interesting to non-specialist adult readers.” The authors of the essays, selected by Jung, are successful in what they set out to do. This study group will focus on the essay written by Jung titled, “Approaching the Unconscious.” It is a worthwhile introduction or refresher to Jung’s analytical psychology. The study group will explore topics such as basic Jungian concepts, the importance and function of dreams, and typology.
