The Heroine’s Journey through Literature


This monthly, collaboratively run, peer learning group is for those interested in exploring Jungian theory and applying it to literature. 

Members of the group will benefit from a working knowledge of Jungian theory to participate in answering questions such as; “What are the archetypes exhibited by the heroine and other supportive characters in the story?” and “What kind of complexes seem to drive her action?”

The first month will be devoted to examining key Jungian concepts. The guiding text, to be read prior to the first meeting, will be The Virgin’s Promise by Kim Hudson (2009), Michael Wiese Productions, Studio City, CA.

In subsequent meetings the Jungian framework will be used to examine Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte), The Thirteenth Tale, (Diane Setterfield) and Persuasion (Jane Austen).

Time: 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Dates: Aug. 22, Sept. 26, Oct. 17, Nov. 28
