The Guild offers a rich forum for anyone interested in exploring the relationship between spirituality, religion and depth psychology, with particular reference to the writings of C. G. Jung.

C.G. Jung was a founding Patron in 1937. Today the Guild organises conferences, workshops, and a series of monthly lectures in London, as well as co-ordinating a number of local Guild Groups in the UK and Australia.

"Only the symbolic life can express the needs of the soul".

This reflection of Jung's, given in his 1939 talk to the Guild of Pastoral Psychology “The Symbolic Life”, remains the Guild’s inspiration. Our Programme of talks and conferences aims to foster creativity, debate and connections both within and between people. You are welcome to any of our events and no previous knowledge of Jung is required
