Jungian Ever After | Introduction


We are adding a new show to Jungianthology! Jungian Ever After is a new show co-hosted by Chicago Society of Jungian Analysts member Adina Davidson and Raisa Cabrera. It’s a podcast about fairy tales through the lens of Jungian analysis. Jungian Ever After will be shared on our feed alongside our other shows. They have 7 episodes so far, so it will take a little bit for our feed to catch up with theirs, but we will! If you want to listen to all of their published episodes right now, go to Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or search for “Jungian Ever After” in your favorite podcast app.

Allow us to introduce ourselves and why we’re making this show!

We’ll be reading from Household Tales by Brothers Grimm

Adina also recommends: The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales (Pantheon Fairy Tale And Folklore Library). If attempting to purchase this, be sure it says, “with Padraic Colum (intro) and Joseph Campbell (commentary) and James Scharl (illustr)”. Amazon considers all versions to be the same book, so you could accidentally buy a copy without those key elements.

Institute Archive | The Warrior Within: A Study in Masculine Psychology with Robert Moore, PhD

This episode is the first session of the series The Warrior Within: A Study in Masculine Psychology, a classic seminar in his series on the four major archetypes of masculine psychology as he understood them: King, Warrior, Magician, Lover. From the seminar description:

The Warrior is the archetype of self-disciplined, aggressive action. If Warrior energy is not accessed properly, a man may find himself caught up in cruel or self-destructive behavior. The mature Warrior, however, will be energetic, decisive and persevering in reaching his goals.  The course is divided into the following four topics:

• The Warrior in myth, folklore and religion
• The Warrior’s role in masculine creativity and leadership
• Psychopathology of the Warrior
• Creating the “Rainbow Warrior”: resources for healing the Warrior
