The mythological motif of the “theft of the fire”, usually understood symbolically as part of the process of becoming conscious, appears within stories of the indigenous peoples of Brazil. This presentation will discuss a tale, originating among the Kayapó-Gorotire tribe in central Brazil, about a young boy obtaining fire from the jaguar. The psychological meaning of the aspects of the tale will be discussed within the tenets of Jungian psychology.

The C.G. Jung Club of Orange County provides quality educational programs designed to promote the study and discussion of Jungian Psychology, also known as Analytical Psychology.  The programs elaborate and amplify the ideas of C.G. Jung by exploring diverse perspectives of Jungian Psychology, as well as a wide range of subjects studied by Jung and his followers, such as mythology and comparative religion.  We seek to understand the human psyche through the psychological theories and therapeutic methods pioneered by C.G. Jung and the current use of Jungian concepts by contemporary Jungian analysts.
