SUBJECTS COVERED

Active Imagination, Fundamentals, Individuation

DESCRIPTION

Jung asked his patients to paint and draw their inner images as he did himself. Series of images were created as part of the therapeutic process in the so-called Active Imagination. The C.G. Jung collection, comprising around 4,500 original works by his patients from the years 1917 to 1955, is unique and incomparable with any other psychiatrist’s collection of his time.

This seminar will give you on one hand an overview of the history and content of the Picture Archive of the C.G.Jung Institute Zürich, but we will also look at individual picture series, especially in the context of the method of the Active Imagination introduced by Jung.
