“I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully as you can, in some beautifully bound book.” These were C.G. Jung’s words to Christiana Morgan in 1926. They are his words to us today. He urges us to look at the images in our dreams and in our memories, to let them open doorways to the soul, and to write it all down in our journals.
In this course we will look at how Jung did this in The Red Book as he searched for his lost soul. We will ask ourselves how we perceive the soul. We will look at journaling as a way to enter into dialogue with our own soul. Working with images in our journal entries, we will practice active imagination. We will read more excerpts from C.G. Jung, along with excerpts from Etty Hillesum, and Thomas Merton, each of whom journaled toward wholeness, uncovering the oneness of all creation. Our journals will become our own red books, the silent places where we find renewal.
