Walking In Shoes Too Small: Exploring the Work of Carl Jung

  • Chrysalis Institute 213 Roseneath Road Richmond, VA 23221 (map)

Carl G. Jung, renowned Swiss psychologist, wrote “we all walk in shoes too small for us.” As children, we’re often told we can be anything we want, but somehow, over the years, possibilities get eliminated. We tell ourselves I can’t do this or I’m not good at that or I’ll never be able to… and, when midlife rolls around, we’re limited by insecurities, self-doubt, and ruts. We stay in jobs we dislike, stagnate in dead relationships, or dream about what could have been. Guided by the work of Carl Jung, we’ll examine and challenge the stories we currently tell ourselves. Are you ready to try on some bigger shoes? 

This is for you if you:

  • Are willing to look inside and examine your life

  • Would like to explore your own potential

  • Are intrigued by Jungian psychology
