6 Wednesdays, Beginning October 28
In Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Jung tells of recurring dreams with the same theme. He finds himself in an added wing of his house that was unfamiliar to him but that had been there all along. He came to realize that this unknown wing was an aspect of his own personality - of himself. This unconscious piece revealed itself as an interest for the study of medieval alchemy. The year was 1926, and Carl Jung spent the next 30+ years unraveling the mysteries of alchemy and how alchemy is a symbolic representation of the individuation process.
In this six-week course, we will read in Vol. 12 of the Collected Works Part III: "Religions Ideas in Alchemy". Included in this reading are the Basic Concepts of Alchemy, The Psychic Nature of the Alchemical Work, The Work, The Prima Materia, The Lapis-Christ Parallel, and the Alchemical Symbolism in the History of Religion.
