Jungian Book Discussion

Jungian Book Discussion

As are many today, we in the Jung Book Club are "Zooming" along! I am pleased to announce that we have also resumed IN-PERSON meetings which we conduct as hybrid Zoom meetings. The in-person takes place at The First Unitarian Church of Dallas, 4015 Normandy  Drive Room 305, Dallas, Texas. The Church has made some wonderful technology available to us to make this possible. Our normal meeting times are first and third Tuesdays of each month at 11:30 a.m., and run to about 12:45 p.m. The discussions are lively and we have a range of views within our attendees, with a keen but sometimes critical interest in Analytical Psychology. We would love to have you join us. Please send your email address to charlesranderson@yahoo.com so that I can put you on our mailing list with information about our next meetings including a link to the next Zoom session.

We are currently reading Freud & Jung by Anthony Storr and Anthony Stevens. In as much as Freud sometimes gets a bit of a short shrift in Jungian circles, this is a more balanced look at Freud's life and concepts. Freud and Jung each get approximately 100 pages in this highly readable biography and exposition.

Please join us. Thank you for your interest and support.

The Jung Society of North Texas sponsors a book discussion group that currently meets via Zoom. Meetings take place the first and third Tuesdays of each month, 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. All are welcome, and there is no charge. Charles Anderson facilitates. You may contact him at charlesranderson@yahoo.com.

As we discuss the chapters, I continue to invite everyone to pick out passages or concepts which you think are most important or worthy of discussion.
