Message from the Board

September marked the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Maine Jung Center. At this evolutionary milepost—the conclusion of the Center’s first Saturn return, if you will—the Board of Directors is honing in on the challenges and responsibilities that lie ahead. With this Message from the Board as an initial step, we formally announce the 2020-2024 Maine Jung Center Strategic Plan, the development of which will take place over the next six months.

Member involvement will be an essential part of the strategic planning process if it is to be successful. We invite you to participate as much as time allows and ask you to note the following pertinent dates on your calendars: 

February 8 – Members’ Corner event to be held at the home of Jack and Nancy Collins (snow date February 16). Further details will be sent out soon. Please attend this purely social event and complete the survey in person if you haven’t already.

February 24 – Deadline for the completion of the Member Survey. At there is a survey you may complete online. Paper copies of the survey are available at the Center at 183 Park Row.

Late March – The Board will meet with founding members and local Jungian Analysts in a focus group.

April 5 – Town Hall: All members and friends of the Jung Center are invited to attend this presentation of survey findings and discussions thus far. It is from here that final decisions will be made for the next five years of the Center, so please let your thoughts be known.

June 2019 – The Board of Directors will approve the 2020-2024 Strategic Plan for the Maine Jung Center.

We invite your involvement and input throughout the strategic planning process. Please share your thoughts with us at any time by reaching out to

The Maine Jung Center strives to provide its members with consistent quality programming, and we would like to continue to do so. We would love to hear your ideas on what workshops/programs you would like to see. To this end, it is vitally important that you take a few minutes to complete our survey.

We are very excited about our upcoming Winter/Spring 2019 offerings! We welcome back some of our favorite presenters (Chris Beach, Teresa Arendell, and Rick Bouchard, to name just a few. In addition, we are delighted to present (and also welcome back) Beverley Zabriskie—some of you may have met her at our Members’ Celebration as she regaled us with stories of her attendance at Esther Harding’s 80th birthday celebration. In May, Beverley will be presenting a two-day workshop on Emotion: The Alchemistry of Life.
