The similarities in the lives of C. G. Jung and J. R. R Tolkien and the products of their creative work are astonishing.  In this presentation, we will discuss some of the common ground from which they worked and analyze the archetypal images in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings  as reflections of the inner drama Jung called individuation.  




Janis Maxwell, PhD, is a training analyst and member of the faculty of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zürich, where she is involved in training analysts to use music in their practice. She has served as President and Director of Training of the Philadelphia Jung Institute as well as Director of Training for the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.
