June Singer (1920 – January 19, 2004) was an American analytical psychologist. She co-founded the Analytical Psychology Club of Chicago, later the Jung Institute of Chicago, as well as the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. She helped to popularize Carl Jung's theories in the United States, and wrote several well-regarded books.
Singer accompanied her husband, Richard Singer, to the Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, where she became interested in Jung and completed her own training as an analyst. The Singers returned to the United States to found the Analytical Psychology Club of Chicago in 1965. This organization later expanded, became known as the C. G. Jung Institute of Chicago, and joined the International Association for Analytical Psychology; June Singer remained a lifetime honorary member.
After Richard Singer died in 1967, June Singer was the only Jungian analyst in Chicago. She earned a PhD from Northwestern University in 1968.
In 1973–1974 Singer and several other Jungians in the U.S. founded the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts, which joined the International Association for Analytical Psychology.
Singer moved to Palo Alto in 1980, working at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and joining the San Francisco Jung Institute and the local Gnostic church.
In 1987, Singer married Dr. Irving Sunshine, with whom she returned to California and later retired in Ohio...
Quotes by June Singer
In the end a person must lose that which is most precious, that to which one's whole life has been devoted. The treasure is consciousness; it is the ego's final sacrifice to the Self. This sacrifice must be offered before the ultimate moment when the individual merges with the unconscious and stands before God.
