James Hillman

In Defense of Jung
Soul Psychology for the 21st Century

New biographies, newly found manuscripts, new societies of Jungian Analysts in Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Pacific Rim are re-vitalizing the heritage of C.G. Jung. Yet, at the same time the old, stereotyped, negative attitudes continue, such as Jung the “mystic,” Jungians a romantic “cult,” Jungian psychology is neither scientific nor clinical…

In this seminar, Dr. Hillman, the first Director of Studies at the C.G. Jung Institute of Zürich while Jung was still alive and whose own work has kept him in the midst of Jungian thought for fifty years, will address the importance of Jung and his ideas for this new century. The weekend will offer a penetrating opportunity to refresh Jungian studies, move beyond the confines of mainstream prejudices, and expand the sensibilities of practitioners in the many fields of human services—rediscovering Jung as a fount of inspiration for all vocations of caring and creating.
