Surviving Turbulent Times: Reflections on Mid-Life and Jung’s Red Book

“You cannot flee yourself…it demands fulfillment… the spirit of the depths demands. The life you could still live, you should live.” -CG Jung, The Red Book, p. 234

This interdisciplinary symposium invites us to reflect on Jung’s essential work as it impacts our capacity to live our life fully. Ann Ulanov calls us to enter Jung’s experience of chaos as expressed in The Red Book – to expose gaps in us – “our unlived life” – to question what we have lived and not lived in the face of turbulent times. Scholars will discuss their experience and understanding of The Red Book based on their research and practice.
