Book Exploration Course

From the Back Matter: Possibly the best one-volume English-language summary of Jung's thought . . . , Murrray Stein develops the cartographical metaphor of the title by beginning with the "surface" (ego) of the psyche and exploring successively more complex areas, including complexes, libido theory, shadow, anima/animus the Self, individuation, and synchronicity.  The map soon resembles the multidisciplinary chart of a solar system more than it does a flat map.  In each subject area, Stein draws heavily on papers that Jung wrote late in his life, but he sets these in the context of Jung's earlier developing thought.  This method allows the author to demonstrate the interconnectedness and coherence of Jung's mature work.

Text: Jung’s Map of the Soul by Murray Stein

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 and secretary/treasurer of the board.


The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.
