Jung Society of Utah: The Red Book 

Sept 3

Pin It

After Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung is arguably the most influential figure in the history of psychology, with his theories of the collective unconscious, archetypes, psychological types and individuation.

During World War I, Jung engaged in a “confrontation with the unconscious,” in which he developed these theories. He chronicled these experiences in The Red Book, compiled between the years of 1914-1930.

Only a handful of family members and associates were shown the several hundred pages during Jung’s lifetime, but now the volume finally is being published. Dr. Lance Owens, a physician in clinical practice, joins the Jung Society of Utah for a discussion on the content and nature of The Red Book and the impact it will have on Jungian studies. Owens has lectured on the work of Jung for 20 years, and is a supporting member of the Philemon Foundation, a non-profit foundation dedicated to preparing for publication the complete works of Carl Jung.

The event also serves to launch the Jung Society of Utah, though you don’t have to be a member to attend. The Society was founded by Machiel Klerk, a mental-health therapist, but the group is designed for those interested in Jungian and other depth-psychology (studying the subconscious) theories at all levels of knowledge, claiming to be a “stimulating, intellectual and non-judgmental space for sharing and exchanging ideas.”

The Red Book: Discussion with Dr. Lance Owens and the Jung Society of Utah @ Salt Lake City Library, 210 E. 400 South, 801- 328-4200. Sept 3, 7-9pm.
