Meister Eckhart and C.G. Jung: On the Vocation of the Self

I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book: “Meister Eckhart and C.G. Jung: On the Vocation of the Self,” a project I began 44 years ago at UC Santa Cruz (UCSC). Here is a review by Jungian Analyst and Spiritual Director John Ensign:
“Meister Eckhart and C.G. Jung: On the Vocation of the Self” by Jungian analyst Steven Herrmann represents an important contribution to the literature on the intersection of spirituality and psychology. Blending poetry and scholarship, the book provides in-depth analysis of Meister Eckhart’s mystical theology and its influence on the work of Carl Jung. Examining this material from the perspective of spiritual vocation, Herrmann articulates a psychological theology that is relevant to contemporary individuals while remaining faithful to the conceptual complexity of these two seminal figures. The author’s account of his own spiritual journey, which is deeply rooted in the natural world and his work as a practicing analyst, grounds the discussion in lived experience. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this pivotal but challenging Dominican teacher and preacher and his influence on Jung’s life and thought.
