Explore a Jungian perspective on money and finance

Money is one of the givens of modern life. Join us for this seminar series as we explore new ways to develop a relationship with money based on the Jungian concepts of archetype, symbol, and psychological energy.

Although some have tried, no one can function comfortably in the modern world without taking money into account. Although money is something that most people do not like to talk about socially, it is one of the most important intellectual constructs in our world today. It’s power to change lives for good or ill is truly magical, and in essence is completely a construct of the imagination. When viewed from the perspective of Jungian psychology, a picture of money and finance emerges which is quite different from what we typically see presented to us in the contemporary world. Money has come to represent the central symbol of wealth, status, power, and life energy in the world today. When we understand money through the lens of the numinosum – as one of the sacred images of the archetypal self – we can begin to make shifts in our relationship with money that we might not have considered previously.

Ann Amberg, MCS, Transpersonal Leadership Consultant

I highly recommend Dr. James Newell’s courses. Upon completion of my certificate in Depth Psychology I had gained the confidence, focus and knowledge to support my success in my current PhD program in Jungian and Archetypal Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute. James is a knowledgeable and caring instructor with an engaging teaching style. All of the Depth Psychology Alliance courses I took: Introduction to Jungian Psychology, Active Imagination, Fairy Tales, Dreams, and many more, were phenomenal and I am most grateful for the opportunity to study with James.

Nirlap Bettenhauser, student

This is an outstanding educational program where one can learn multiple areas of Jungian Psychology. These courses are very well structured with an appropriate course load and high quality texts. Plus the price is incredibly reasonable. The courses I have taken with Dr. Newell have been intellectually engaging and have perfectly prepped me for my graduate studies in psychoanalysis. Not something I expected to receive from the academy, but very grateful I did.
