Understanding the Meaning of Alchemy: Jung's Metaphor for the Transformative Process

During the last thirty years of his life, Jung turned to alchemy as a fundamental resource for depth psychology. In alchemy he found images and thoughts that were uniquely fitted to his perceptions of psychological life and that confirmed his views of the spontaneous activity and directedness of the unconscious. Jungian analyst and author Murray Stein presents an overview of Jung's work on alchemy to develop an understanding of the relation of alchemical symbols to the analytical process and individuation. The set includes the following lectures:

Part 1 - Commentary on The Secret of the Golden Flower [in CW 13] - Available on the Jungianthology Podcast
Part 2 - Psychology and Alchemy [CW 12, parts 1 & 2]
Part 3 - The Spirit Mercurius [in CW 13]
Part 4 - The Psychology of Transference [in CW 16]
Part 5 - Mysterium Coniunctionis [CW 14, Chap. 6]
