Summer Series 2013: Jung's Red Book
Begin to create your own Red Book with Walter A. McGerry, MA
Sonu Shamdasani tells the story of an associate of Jung's who asked Jung to
comment on some of his Red Book mandalas and paintings. Jung declined
saying that his friend would be better served by creating her own red
book. This summer we will have the opportunity to create our own
red books during a 6-week course that will meet during June, July,
and August.
Course participants will meet with a presenter for two hours
every other week. During these meetings we will discuss Jung's experinces,
which lead to his experiences, which became The Red Book. During seceding
sessions we will learn about active imagination techniques, dream
interpretation, journaling and mandala creation. Participants will have an
opportuinity to use these techniques between sessions and bring their
creations to the group for discussion and sharing.
The course will be limited to a maximum of 20 participants.
Session One (June 12): Introduction of Jung's experiences with the Red
Book material and the development of active imagination methods. Overview
of active imagination, dream analysis, synchronicity and mandala creation.
Session Two (June 26): Instruction in active imagination. Between
sessions particiaptns will work with active imagination methods and will
give expression to the inspiration that emerges through drawing,
writing and sculpting.
Session Three (July 10): Particpants will share expresions of their
active imagination work. Instruction in dream work/analysis together with
Jung's views. Between sesions participants will work with dreams and
keep a jounal.
Session Four (July 24): Participatns will share their experiences with
dream work. Instructions in Jung's views of synchronicity. Between sessions
participants will keep a journal of synchronistic occurrences.
Session Five (Aug 14): Participants will share their journal of synchronous
experiences. Instruction in mandala as transcendent unifying principle.
Between sessions participants will create mandala.
Session Five (Aug 21): Refelction and integration of material through sharing
