Beyond the Red Book

This five-part lecture series will explore Jung’s ideas as they developed from The Red Book through his last work, Man and His Symbols.  Participants will come away with an understanding of the key achievements of Jung’s thought: the reality of psychic life, the transcendent function, the significance of alchemy, and the individuation process and their applications to personal and professional life.

This series is a sequel to our series Jung’s Red Book.

Approaching the Unconscious: The Matrices of Jung’s Analytical Psychology
Ken James, PhD
Learn the major milestones in the development of Jungian psychology, how Jung’s articulation of these theoretical aspects relate to his historical milieu, and the influence of the unconscious on both of these sets of phenomena. The symbol is explored as a means of understanding one’s relationship to life, time, and the unconscious.

Anima & Animus: Exploring the Internal and External Other
Barbara Friedman, PhD & Daniel Ross, RN, PMHNP
The presenters relate Jung’s explorations in the Red Book to his later theory of the anima and animus, the feminine principle operating within men and the masculine principal operating within women. They follow the relevance of his theory to our postmodern and less essentialist times.

The Eternal Image: Exploring Ancient Myths in eModern Movie Classics
Judith Cooper, PsyD & Suzanne Rosenthal, PhD
Jung may be seen to have anticipated how gifted contemporary filmmakers mine the unconscious depths of psyche to create ‘moving images’ which fascinate, disturb, and emotionally catalyze audiences today. Selected current films connect us with the same archetypal energies ‘in modern dress’ that haunted Jung.

Persona and Shadow in Political Life
Catharine Jones, MDiv, LCSW & Rinda West
This course considers how Shadow projections complicate and contaminate public life, particularly in relation to issues of race and the environment. Shadow projections burden minorities with distorted cultural perceptions, and fearful projections onto the natural world have distanced us from the healing that nature can offer.

The Self and Contemporary Spiritual Thought: Ego in Relationship to the Other
George Didier, PsyD, DMin & Bill Schmidt, PhD
Explore Jung’s discovery of the religious-making capacity of the psyche and its mythologizing function, emphasizing the far reaching ramifications of Jung’s idea of the Self.
