As such, there is no set "time" it occurs, but rather is ongoing and you can post or respond at your convenience. Janet Fortess and Chris Doggett, students and colleagues of Robert will be providing some structure and be on hand to facilitate the discussion, and Robert himself will also be checking in.

  • Thanks for the suggestion--somehow I had to flip left and right and it posted correctly even if mirror image--take that, Trickster!

  • Hi Everyone!

    I have to say that right now I am feeling a bit behind where I would like to be in this venture. I have finally gotten all the tapes downloaded, and I have listened to the first CD, but I only got a study guide for CD 1 through 4 . Wondering what happened to the rest. I am also now at last in posession of the red book. I ordered the right version by pure chance. I had no idea there were more than one edition of the book. I now have to catch up on reading, and it is all so interesting that It is taking time. Do we turn in the chapter answers at then end of the course, or as we conclude each section?

    A special greeting to Peter...I see your name on the Animas valley guide list. And to Chris. I seriously contemplated traveling to Esalen over the holidays for the program you attended. I have quested with Bill, and gone on other adventures with both Bill and Geneen and others at AVI. 




  • Hi Bonnie, Well my sideways picture will have to represent surrender (unless I figure out how to fix it):) The appeal of alchemy aside, I suppose at this point I would have to say that I experience some ambivalence regarding the extent of mortificatio undergone by Jung in this process and am unsure if it is a psychologically balanced approach, at least for me, or whether the spirit might be harmed by it in some way. However it is difficult to read his account, as an empath, without sharing in the depth of his experience to some degree and so i am cautiously going forward with him while trying to not identify too fully since this the process belongs to him though instructive for us.

      I like this image!  It really illustrates what the reunion of the soul to the body might be like -- its rushing and movement with passion.  Is this what happens when we call in the Spirit of Depths?

    • This image (thanks, Ava, for opening it up--I couldn't get it to!) struck me as the feeling of having been grabbed by the spirit of the depths to the point where Jung is calling for his lost soul (p. 127 Reader's Edition [HIii(r)] [1] in facsimile) "My soul, where are you?  Do you hear me? I speak, I call you--are you there?  Here is a rare recording of "C.G. Jung Speaks to his Soul" which I found very moving:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt_-LHKff_g.  It was played at Sonu Shamdasani's introduction to the Red Book at the Rubin Museum in New York.

  • Greetings everyone, I feel like I’m arriving late to the party. I’m a librarian in Los Angeles and my wife is an artist. We are studying The Red Book together and having wonderful conversations regarding the material. I’ve been a long time reader in depth psychology and from an early age Jung’s ideas seemed to click with me.

    I really feel that The Red Book is one of the most important publications in the last fifty years. I really like the physical characteristics of the book: the size and weight give it a unique distinction in my library. It doesn’t fit on most bookcases. It really needs it own space, which is very fitting for this book. Physically and psychologically the book can’t be ignored…you need to find a good spot for it.

    As a librarian we are use to classifying things as either fiction or non-fiction. This work seems to be both. This is how it should be: challenging the reader to let go of their binary opposition and explore the interior world of the psyche; to start our own journeys and see what material comes up for each of us.

    I have enjoyed all the post tremendously and look forward to more as we continue exploring this remarkable book together.

     P.S I’ll try and post a better picture in the next few days.
