An Evening With

Tonight we’ll consider the influence of Asian thought and belief on Carl Jung’s work, writings, and life.  By contrasting his own cultural standpoint with that of an entirely foreign culture, Jung was able to make profound developments in his own understanding of the human experience.  In so doing he was able to refine his work in ways that may not have been otherwise possible.

Jonathan Gilbert, a practitioner of traditional oriental medicine (TOM).   His formal training in London and Vietnam was followed by a 12-year apprenticeship in Han Dynasty medical theory.  Although based in the Washington, D.C., area, he has lectured throughout the USA on the subject of TOM.  He has an abiding interest in the work of C.G. Jung and is a keen Utah Jazz basketball fan, which, he claims, deepens his understanding of tragedy.
