The Red Book as Medicine for our Times

With Nancy Furlotti


The Red Book reflects not only Jung’s personal experience of his life, but an understanding of the larger collective experience, as well. C.G. Jung worked on The Red Book between 1913 and 1930, during the period around WWI and leading up to WWII. Historically, that was a very difficult and dangerous period. Now that The Red Book has been published 78 years later, questions arise about why it was published now, and it’s relevance to us in the 21st century, individually and culturally. Our current global situation is not that dissimilar from the period when Jung took up this work. This lecture will explore the questions of how it is relevant to us today in our postmodern world, and how it can contribute to a healthier sense of self and world view. We will explore how the ideas that emerged through his personal experience were then formulated into his theory of the nature and workings of the psyche that continues to be relevant to us individually and culturally. (2 CEU’s)


Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Deepen their understanding of the relation between Jung’s personal experiences and the development of his analytical psychology as expressed in the Red Book; and
  2. Demonstrate insight into the relevance of the Red Book for our postmodern world. 


Saturday 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

 The Red Book: Exploring Layers of Significance

With Nancy Furlotti


In these lectures we will explore C. G. Jung's personal journey into the unconscious as detailed in The Red Book, his Liber Novus. We will look at the influences in his personal life and what was happening in the world that led him to withdraw significantly from collective life to embark upon this difficult inner exploration. We will then follow the progression of inner figures he encounters on his journey and discuss how he relates to their changing development. Jung’s exploration of typology during this period led him to develop an orienting framework for understanding his experience. In addition to typology, we can see the development of many of his ideas and concepts that became incorporated into the larger body of his works and theories. Pulling all these pieces together, Jung arrived at his understanding of the nature of the psyche itself, and the concept which became the opus of his life's work, the transformation of the God image, a figure containing both good and evil. (6 CEU’s)


Learning Objectives: Following the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Deepen their awareness of the global events that shaped the Red Book;
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of Jung’s individual encounters with the unconscious that influenced his Red Book writings; 
  3. Define and distinguish between Spirit of the Times and Spirit of the Depths;
  4. Identify the different inner figures that emerge and progress during the writing of the Red Book, including Philemon and Salome;
  5. Clarify the manner in which the inner figures change, and the relation of the inner figures to Jung’s psyche; 
  6. Identify the influence of Jung’s typology development on the Red Book;
  7. Demonstrate a broader understanding of the ways in which the Red Book suggests the central concepts about which Jung wrote in his later works on the dynamics of the psyche; and 
  8. Deepen their understanding to what Jung means by God and by God’s transformation.

Her article, Tracing a Red Thread: Synchronicity and Jung’s Red Book, was published in Psychological Perspectives. Nancy has a deep interest in exploring the manifestations of the psyche through dreams and myths with a specific focus on the dark emanations from the psyche. A current focus of research is on Mesoamerican mythology and multiple states of consciousness.
