The Hong Kong Institute of Analytical Psychology (HKIAP) is a Developing Group of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP). It deals with the training of future Jungian analysts in Hong Kong and the diffusion of the analytical though in East Asia. Marta Tibaldi is the Liaison Person between the IAAP and the HKIAP and is responsible of theoretical and clinical activities of the group. The article outlines some of the topics that, among others, have been a spe-cific object of HKIAP: a reflection on the Jungian and post-Jungian identity and its relationship with the individuation process in a multicultural context such as Hong Kong; the experience of an on-going Active Imagination Experiential Group and the use of the technique of "Active Deep Writing" to develop an imaginal approach to psychic dynamics; the study of the Chinese gender complex and its implications on the internal and relational reality of Eastern Asian women and men.

Keywords: Hong Kong, Jung, analytical psychology, active imagination, active deep writing, intercultural
