What some participants have to say about JPEG:


This year's JPEG was an inspiring and enjoyable experience of exploring the workings and influence of the unconscious through a variety of media.  What was very special about JPEG was that the presenters never spoke down to the group participants, but involved them actively in something very important to them.


JPEG has been an incredibly enlivening and enriching personal growth experience. It is one of the best analytic learning groups I have been involved with as it offers a space in which to learn from bodily and felt experience rather than focusing on gaining 'academic' knowledge.


The Jungian Play and Experimental group provided a valuable and meaningful forum for exploration of Jungian ideas in a group setting. I enjoyed every session and would recommend the course to anyone interested in furthering a deeper interest in the application of all things Jungian.


I have really enjoyed the Experiential Group over the last year.  It has helped me to keep connected with the SAP and be a part of a group that is learning at the same time in similar ways over a prolonged period.  I really value the opportunity it has given me to reflect further on themes arising from the introductory lecture series. The JPEG is another strand of preparation for the training which I am planning to apply for over the next year or so. I look forward to the JPEG 2013-2014 series.


I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The experiential aspect and a deliberate lack of a spoken word (or its limited use) provided for a wonderful balance to often over intellectualised atmosphere in which we attempt to understand ourselves and the world around us. Many of the sessions helped me get in touch with my primitive self where healing and relatedness can happen outside of the realm of my mind.


Every meeting has felt consistently unique, unknown and exciting.  The JPEG days have been prepared and organised in a considered manner and the facilitation is sensitive, interactive yet non-imposing.  The JPEG days breathe all the wonderful qualities of play, self-reflection and exploration back into the mystery of what it is to be human and leans less towards the theoretical, which often can be passed around as outworn intellectual umbrellas within our learning institutes.
