I'm sure Jungian meditation teachers are out there if you look for them.
If you're interested in the jhanas, take a look at the book The Path of Purification (original title: Visuddhimagga). You may also wish to ask around at the DhammaWheel board: http://www.dhammawheel.com
Thanks to the help of generous sponsors (most of them from DharmaWheel), I'm doing a Vajra Armor (Dorje Kotrab) self-retreat this summer. May the merit be yours!
