 Memories, Dreams, ReflectionsMemories, Dreams, Reflections Paperback – April 23, 1989

On Tuesday, May 21, 2019, we will begin discussion of Memories, Dreams, Reflections (MDR) by C.G. Jung; recorded and edited by Aniela Jaffe; translated from the German by Richard and Clara Winston.  "In the spring of 1957, when he was eighty-one years old, C.G. Jung undertook the telling of his life story. At regular intervals he had conversations with his colleague and friend Aniela Jaffe, and collaborated with her in the preparation of the text based on these talks. On occasion, he was moved to write entire chapters of the book in his own hand, and he continued to work on the final stages of the manuscript until shortly before his death on June 6, 1961. This edition of Memories, Dreams, Reflections includes Jung's VII Sermones ad Mortuos. It is a fully corrected edition."*
For our May 21st session, please read the Introduction, Prologue, and Chapter 1 First Years. We would love to have you join us, but if you are unable to do so, and you are interested in Jung and his life work, this book is a good place to start. MDR is C.G. Jung, the man, talking and writing about his life and his work as he remembers it and sharing his thoughts and feelings along the way.
