The Carl Jung Circle Center aims to reach a vast number of Filipinos to help awaken their psyche and soul to the potential of its gifts, its beauty, its wisdom, its power, and its greatness. It seeks to “awaken the passion for tending psyche/soul/Self.” It further seeks the spread of the Jungian model of psychology as a psycho-spiritual bridge between what is important in our everyday life and what deeply touches both our minds and our souls.
The mission of the Center is to provide avenues for growth of the Self, bringing together the energies of people through seminars/ workshops for the public, invest in studies on Jung and the Filipino psyche, and create sanctuaries for the soul. It aims to establish linkages with other Jung Centers, government agencies, academic institutions, and other kindred groups.
CJCC delivers its mission in four parts through: • Studies • Services • Synergy • Sanctuary
• CONTINUOUS LEARNING
We believe in life-long learning, in reflecting, in sharing insights and wisdom. We believe in scholarship - keeping ourselves abreast in the field of Jungian and Depth Psychology.
• FRIENDSHIP & COMMUNITY
We believe in diversity. We nurture relationships. We respect and care for each other. We celebrate and mark our joys and our sorrows.
• CREATIVITY & BEAUTY
We incorporate art and beauty in the work we do. We innovate and experiment with the application of our field of Jungian and Depth Psychology.
• SOCIAL IMPACT & RELEVANCE
We believe in the necessity of our individual soul work as a key to keeping humanity humane, grounded, and mindful. We believe that the health of the soul of the human is tied with the health of nature and the world.

Carl Gustav Jung, was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst whose life work involved exploring his unconscious side. He was the son of a pastor, Paul Jung and a medium , Emilie Preiswerk. As a young boy , being a loner, he encountered visions, and was deeply reflective and intelligent. He noted early on that he had a two distinct personalities inside of him. This did not disturb him. Instead, it fueled his hunger for learning about the two.
After university, he made contact with Sigmund Freud , who was a popular scientist and analyst at that time. He wrote to Sigmund to say that he admired him and that he agreed with his theories. The two met and talked for 13 hours straight, on all topics and about life in general. They developed a close friendship and colleageship, Freud even considering Jung to be his successor as head of the Psychological association.
But Jung eventually found himself not agreeing with Freud on all his theories. He had different views . This led to a “falling-out “ between them. The break however, triggered a deep search for meaning within Jung, which he later described as INDIVIDUATION, the journey toward one’s Self.
Because Jung was no longer connected to Freud, he was able to explore his own ideas and theories about a lot of things. He developed most importantly the theory of the collective unconscious. He also delved, researched and wrote about such concepts as personality types (introversion, extroversion), archetypal energies (persona, shadow), anima and animus (feminine and masculine), sychronicity, active imagination, dream interpretation, among others.
He was very much interested in the mystical, the spiritual, history, art, paranormal, culture, the sciences, personal experience and integrated all these when treating his patients and especially when he wrote his many books and papers. It is because of this that his theories and work are still relevant today in many fields and influences people from many walks of life.
