“How to Save Jung from the Red Bookand the Red Book from Jung”


The Red Book
The Red Book

The C.G Jung Institute of San Francisco is pleased to present this wonderful workshop. This is a workshop about the imagination and how Jung’s radical treatment of it changes things both personally and collectively in issues of knowing and being. It centers on The Red Bookand includes practical creative work with active imagination and amplification. Yet we will also examine the different ways Jungian scholars have construed the powerful images of The Red Book in disciplinary frameworks such as “psychology,” “theology,” “anthropology,” “art,” “personal myth,” “modernism” and “postmodernism.” We will include some comparisons with contemporary images of desert and wasteland in the poetry of T.S. Eliot and W.B. Yeats. In particular we will debate what is at stake in connecting The Red Book to Jung’s whole legacy (The Collected Works, the institution of analysis, etc.), especially in such radical conclusions asThe Red Book as “historical source” or, The Red Book as “postmodern fake.” What is at stake for Jung and Jungians when “conclusions” and “definitions” are drawn from this recently published bestselling text?

The workshop will begin by sharing our own imaginative experiences of the text and any artwork (drawing, writing, etc.) would be very enriching. If you have any images or sketches you would like the presenters to view please make sure to email them to before the presentation. On the other hand, we also begin with dramatic readings of the book. This course will also be welcoming to those who have not yet managed to turn the first page!
