Book Exploration

April Barrett 

From the backmatter:  It was the genius of C.G. Jung to discover in the "holy technique" of alchemy a parallel to the psychological individuation process. . . . Here is a lucid and practical account of what the alchemists were really looking for – emotional balance and wholeness. Once again, M.-L. von Franz demonstrates her remarkable gift for translating esoteric, symbolic material into everyday experience. For the images and motifs that so occupied the alchemists were of an archetypal nature. . . . This is an important book, invaluable for an understanding of dreams and indispensable for anyone interested in relationships and communication . . . anyone involved with his or her own psychological development . . . 

April Barrett is in service to the dissemination of Jung's thought through her participation and training with the Creative Initiative Foundation, the Guild for Psychological Studies, and the Jung Society of Washington, for which she is program co-director, executive director, and secretary/treasurer of the board.
