A True Note on a Slack String: The Poetry of Patrick Kavanagh and the Psychology of C.G. Jung - An Imaginal Basis for Personal Change

$23.95

This book weaves together the poetry of Patrick Kavanagh and the psychology of C.G. Jung to offer an imaginal basis for individual change. It addresses key concepts which inform psychological thought, such as attachment, shadow, individuation, sexuality, masculinity, femininity, and love from the perspective of Jungian psychology and through the lens of Kavanagh's poetry, so that doors may open to readers into their own innate resilience and capability not only to survive, but to grow.

Shadow and Evil in Fairy Tales

$29.95

Fairy tales seem to be innocent stories, yet they contain profound lessons for those who would dive deep into their waters of meaning. In this book, Marie-Louise von Franz uncovers some of the important lessons concealed in tales from around the world, drawing on the wealth of her knowledge of folklore, her experience as a psychoanalyst and a collaborator with Jung, and her great personal wisdom. Among the many topics discussed in relation to the dark side of life and human psychology, both individual and collective, are:

   •  How different aspects of the "shadow"—all the affects and attitudes that are unconscious to the ego personality—are personified in the giants and monsters, ghosts, and demons, evil kings and wicked witches of fairy tales
   •  How problems of the shadow manifest differently in men and women
   •  What fairy tales say about the kinds of behavior and attitudes that invite evil
   •  How Jung's technique of Active imagination can be used to overcome overwhelming negative emotions
   •  How ghost stories and superstitions reflect the psychology of grieving
   •  What fairy tales advise us about whether to struggle against evil or turn the other cheek


Dr. von Franz concludes that ever rule of behavior that we can learn from the unconscious through fairy tales and dreams is usually a paradox: sometimes there must be a physical struggle against evil and sometimes a contest of wits, sometimes a display of strength or magic and sometimes a retreat. Above all, she shows the importance of relying on the central, authentic core of our being—the innermost Self, which is beyond the struggle between the opposites of good and evil.

SENEX AND PUER

$40.00

This volume, for the first time, collects James Hillman s running encounters with a primary psychological pattern, an archetype that arises alongside the very attempt to fashion psychological perspective. Senex and puer are Latin terms for old man and youth, and personify the poles of tradition, stasis, structure, and authority on one side, and immediacy, wandering, invention and idealism on the other. The senex consolidates, grounds and disciplines; the puer flashes with insight and thrives on fantasy and creativity. These diverging, conflicting tendencies are ultimately interdependent, forming two faces of the one configuration, each face never far from the other. Old and new maybe the most direct terms for the pair."

The Red Book: Liber Novus

$175.00

"The years, of which I have spoken to you, when I pursued the inner images, were the most important time of my life. Everything else is to be derived from this. It began at that time, and the later details hardly matter anymore. My entire life consisted in elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me. That was the stuff and material for more than only one life. Everything later was merely the outer classification, the scientific elaboration, and the integration into life. But the numinous beginning, which contained everything, was then."

These are the words of the psychologist C. G. Jung in 1957, referring to the decades he worked on The Red Book from 1914 to 1930. Although its existence has been known for more than eighty years, The Red Book was never published or made available to the wide audience of Jung's students and followers. Nothing less than the central book of Jung's oeuvre, it is being published now in a full facsimile edition with a contextual essay and notes by the noted Jung scholar Sonu Shamdasani and translated by Mark Kyburz, John Peck, and Sonu Shamdasani.

It will now be possible to study Jung's self-experimentation through primary documentation rather than fantasy, gossip, and speculation, and to grasp the genesis of his later work. For nearly a century, such a reading has simply not been possible, and the vast literature on his life and work has lacked access to the single most important document. This publication opens the possibility of a new era in understanding Jung's work. It provides a unique window into how he recovered his soul and constituted a psychology. It is possibly the most influential hitherto unpublished work in the history of psychology.

This exact facsimile of The Red Book reveals not only an extraordinary mind at work but also the hand of a gifted artist and calligrapher. Interspersed among more than two hundred lovely illuminated pages are paintings whose influences range from Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East to the native art of the new world. The Red Book, much like the handcrafted "Books of Hours" from the Middle Ages, is unique. Both in terms of its place in Jung's development and as a work of art, its publication is a landmark.

RAIDS ON THE UNTHINKABLE

product image
$20.00

Freudian and Jungian approaches to psychoanalysis have long been characterized by an historical animosity, acutely felt differences widening into strikingly different styles of discourse. Paul Kugler critically rethinks the pivotal concepts of psychoanalysis, and in the process makes evident what the theoretical differences between Freud and Jung have to offer contemporary depth psychology. Through a constructive dialogue between Freudian and Jungian psychoanalysis, Kugler shows that such a project is not only theoretically possible but that it is also of great clinical value. Topics include the unthinkable in depth psychology, Post-Structuralism and linguistics, seduction and the crisis of representation, the legacy of the dead, the co-evolutionary process of biology and language, and other topics at the frontier of contemporary psychoanalysis.

OUT OF THE SHADOWS A STORY OF TONI WOLF AND EMMA JUNG

product image
$17.95

The year is 1910. Sigmund Freud and his heir-apparent, Carl Jung, are changing the way we think about human nature and the mind. Twenty-two year old Toni Wolff enters the heart of this world as Jung's patient. His wife, Emma Jung, is twenty-six, a mother of four, aspiring to help her husband create the new science of psychology. Toni Wolff's fiercely curious mind, and her devotion to Jung, threaten this aspiration. Despite their passionate rivalry for Jung's mind and heart, the two women often find themselves allied. Born of aristocratic Swiss families, they are denied a university education, and long to establish themselves as analysts in their own right. Passionate and self-educated, they hunger for another intellectual woman with whom to explore the complexities of the soul, the role of women in society, and the archetypal feminine in the affairs of nations. Their relationship spans 40 years, from pre-World War I to the dawn of the Atomic Age. Their story follows the development of the field of psychology, and the moral and professional choices of some of its major players. Ultimately, Toni and Emma discover that their individual development is informed by both their antagonism, and their common ground. They struggle to know the essence of the "enemy," the "other," and to claim the power and depth of their own nature. About the Author Elizabeth Clark-Stern is a psychotherapist in private practice in Seattle, Washington. Before embracing this beloved work, she worked as a professional writer and actor. Her produced plays and teleplays include, 'All I Could See From Where I Stood', 'Help Wanted', and 'Nana Sophia's Oasis'. 'Out of the Shadows' began as an independent study at Antioch University. Revised some years later, the International Association of Analytical Psychologists invited the original production to be performed at the International Jungian Congress in South Africa in 2007.

OLD WISE WOMAN A STUDY OF ACTIVE IMAGIN BKP0

Jung in which the imaginal world is entered deliberately while awake in order to gain self-knowledge and resolve conflicts.

Mythologems: Incarnations of the Invisible World

$25.00

Tales told by shadowy elders around ancient campfires offered both explanation and comfort. Life hasn’t changed that much: our dependence on explanation and comfort still lies just under our busy ambition and constant yearning. Most of the time, the basic assumptions of our early years were so viscerally absorbed that we have never made them articulate, and therefore never had any way to evaluate their relevance for us now. What if they are outdated? Immature? Beside the point?

MEMOIR OF TINA KELLER JENNY

$23.95

Tina Keller-Jenny (1887"1985) was a Swiss physician and Jungian psychotherapist who witnessed firsthand the development of analytical psychology during its formative years. In this memoir, she provides an intimate glimpse into this world. She shares her experiences of C. G. Jung himself and his closest associate Toni Wolff, and highlights the development of the technique of active imagination in her analyses. In addition, Keller-Jenny was one of the pioneers in integrating analysis with body-based approaches such as movement and dance. In this work, we see the seeds of active imagination in movement, which has since become a major element in the field of body-sensitive analysis. Her innovative work in finding ways in therapy to communicate what cannot be expressed in words is a remarkable anticipation of contemporary discoveries in interpersonal neurobiology. Healing professionals and those drawn to the inner life will find a rich feast in these pages.
