This course is an invitation to fall into the Spirit of the Deep with Jung and Bosnak, and to gain an in-depth perspective of Jung’s journey with The Red Book.
A century ago, Carl Jung lost his way and surrendered to the figures of the creative imagination. The Red Book or Liber Novus is considered a template or an account of the stages in Jung’s process of individuation as well as the nucleus of his later work. Led by Robert Bosnak, this course provides participants with an opportunity to also get lost in “the deep” and forge their own journey in response to Jung’s.

A century ago, around Christmas 1913, Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung lost his way and surrendered on purpose to the tumultuous embodied intelligence of the autonomous creative imagination. The outcome is a journey as perilous as The Lord of the Rings and as enlightening as The Divine Comedy. One hundred years later Jungian analyst Robert Bosnak gets lost in the timeless Deep together with Jung, and struggles his way back to the 21st century. This is a fascinating travelogue by two men in the same territory a century apart.
This is an in-depth course into The Red Book and an ideal companion if you have your own copy of The Red Book to follow along with. The course also includes a comprehensive study guide with a synopsis of each class, as well as several reflective questions to help you integrate what you learn.
