Established in 2008, this successful reading group aims to carry out a systematic reading of C.G. Jung's original works in monthly facilitated discussions, and explore their significance in academic and clinical contexts, including taking into account post-Jungian perspectives in depth psychology.
In the academic year 2017-2018, the group will read the closing chapters of Jung's Red Book, the Scrutinies, which were written at a later stage than the rest of the book and present an overarching picture of Jung’s cosmology. We will then move on to read some of Jung’s late essays from his collected works that elucidate the same themes. Participants are encouraged to bring their own copy of the "Red Book: A Reader's Edition", by C.G. Jung.
Who the course is for
The reading group is open to those with a shared interest in reading Jung's works. Current participants include clinicians as well as graduates with academic and non-clinical backgrounds. Prior knowledge of subjects is not assumed, but the ability to openly engage with the reading material is an essential part of the group's discussions.
This group qualifies for CPD, and a certificate of attendance will be issued to participants at the end of the year.
The group is led by Katerina Sarafidou who will help select the monthly reading from Jung's works, provide short introductions to the material and facilitate the discussion.
