Despite a not really encouraging I Ching C.G. Jung embarked a steamer heading for Mombasa in October 1925. His companions were George Beckwith and Peter Baynes. Later Ruth Bailey joined the threesome.

For Jung this journey was a major breakthrough in his life. Barbara Hannah, in her Jung biography, called his encounter with the Masai warrior “who had been waiting for [Jung] for five thousand years,” and with the gigantic herds of animals on the Athi Plains, grazing just as they have done “through hundreds of millions of years”, Jung’s two enlightenments in Africa.

Returning from his expedition, Jung suffered a huge cultural shock. He now realized what the white man has done to this world. In a seminar he sadly stated, “Wherever the white man went, there was hell for the other nations; one has to be outside to understand. The white man is a very beast devouring the earth, the whole world trembles at him.”

On Jung Africa left a never waning yearning for the return to the archaic world, the return to our soul.

Andreas Schweizer, Ph.D., is a Jungian analyst in Zürich. He studied theology and comparative religion as well as Egyptology with Prof. Erik Hornung in Basel. He has been a training analyst since 1986, first at the C.G. Jung Institute in Küsnacht and currently with ISAP-Zürich. He is president of the Psychology Club, founded in 1916 by C.G. Jung, and was for fourteen years president of the Eranos Conference in Ascona. He has published numerous essays and books, including The Sungod’s Journey through the Netherworld (Cornell University Press, 2010). His main current interest is in The Red Book.

All lectures will be held at the Park Hill United Church of Christ, at 2600 Leyden Street, on the northeast corner of 26th Avenue and Leyden Street. The entrance to the sanctuary, where the lectures are held, is on Leyden Street just north of the Montessori playground.
