Thursday, October 10
We’ll travel by chartered bus along the eastern shore of Lake Zürich to Küsnacht, the suburb where Jung lived and died. We will tour the historic C.G. Jung Institute of Zürich with Barbara Weskamp, President of the Curatorium, and Renate Daniel, Director of Training, and hear a lecture by Vicente Luis de Moura. There will also be a visit to Jung’s house and grave.
The evening will be free with time for dinner on our own after our return to Zürich.
The Visions Seminar: The Case of Christiana Morgan
with Vicente Luis de Moura
The Picture Archives of the C.G. Jung Institute of Zürich is the home of over 4,000 pictures created by patients of C.G. Jung and other important Jungian analysts. Through Jung’s encouragement to express their psychic world in paintings, Jung launched his patients on a pilgrimage of archetypal encounters in a quest for psychological integration. These images offer an unprecedented view of how Jung worked and the effect of his technique in the development of the psyche. During our visit to the Institute, Vicente de Moura will share one of the best-documented cases in the Archives, the visions of Christiana Morgan in her analysis with C.G. Jung in the 1920s. Using active imagination, she went through a deep encounter with her unconscious—an initiation process to her underworld and met chthonic gods. She later put her fantasies in a book, which could be called a female version of the Red Book.
Vicente Luis de Moura is a psychologist and training analyst. He graduated in 1999 at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zürich, where he works as Curator of the Picture Archives. Former President of the Susan Bach Foundation and member of the SGAP (Swiss Society for Analytical Psychology), he works as an analyst and psychotherapist in Zürich.
The House of C.G. Jung
Located on the shore of Lake Zürich in Küsnacht, the house on Seestrasse was built by C.G. Jung and Emma Rauschenbach in 1909. He lived there until his death in 1961. The house is still occupied by Jung’s grandson, Andreas, and his wife, Verena. Above the door, chiseled in stone, is a Latin verse of a Delphic oracle: Called or uncalled, God will be present. We will explore the grounds and visit Jung’s library and study, where the books are still arranged as Jung originally had them and his desk is as he left it.
