I. About this formation
In this training you will learn what they are and how to apply the maincontributions of theAnalytical Psychology,current created by the Swiss psychiatristCarl Gustav Jung(1875-1961), considered one of the pioneers of modern psychology.
Jung is well known for his contributions related tocollective unconsciousand itsarchetypes—These are the formal matrices of the symbols and myths that we find in all cultures, and that also appear in dreams and certain spiritual experiences. From a therapeutic point of view, he proposed a dynamic model of integration of opposites in the individual psyche, theindividuation process, in which various aspects of the psyche become conscious and integrate: what we believe to be (the Mask), what we reject (the Shadow), the masculine (the Animus) and the feminine (the Soul)... At the same time that said psychic integration is gestating the emergence of the Self, the integrating Totality.
In addition, Jung was interested in classifying thepsychological typesaccording to two general attitudes:introversionYextraversion, combined with the four basic mental functions:thought, feeling, sensation and intuition. He postulated thesynchronicity principleto explain the occurrence of apparently fortuitous phenomena linked from themeaning coincidence.
In short, due to his great open-mindedness and descent into the depths of the human psyche, Jung, with his varied and complex contributions, was an authentic "Pandora's Box" for his time, and today he is a source of inspiration for all those that, without dogmatism, seek to integrate mind and spirit.

V. Benefits: How this training will impact your life
«Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, wakes up.»
~ Carl G. Jung
Jung's psychology invites us to become friends with —recognize, integrate, transform— the dark and light aspects of our Shade. That is to say, Jung invites us to integrate into consciousness those aspects that we reject in others and that are part (deep down) of ourselves; and also integrate those underdeveloped aspects that are latent within us, from which our current life could well be enriched.
Jungian psychology provides us with valuable distinctions that we can profitably apply in our daily lives: it allows us to explore our personality style (introvert - extravert, with its variants); invites us to learn to decode, little by little, the symbolic language of the individual and collective unconscious; opens us to a journey towards the integration of opposites, a journey in which we recognize ourselves as companions of all human beings.
Achieve a systematic and solidly founded understanding of the main pillars of Jungian psychology: the general map of the psyche; psychological types; the collective unconscious and its archetypes, with its various manifestations; the individuation process.
Apply the main contributions of Jungian psychology to personal development, through exercises proposed for each week of the course.
Incorporate the proper use of Jungian distinctions to manage healthy changes in the field of relationships with oneself and with others.
