Zürich, Einsiedeln, Küsnacht, Ascona, & Eranos, Switzerland
The tradition of depth psychology has a deep intellectual legacy. Through an enduring lineage of writers, thinkers, philosophers and teachers, it reverberates within the places they gathered. So many among them—including C.G. Jung, Mircea Eliade, James Hillman, Joseph Campbell, Marie-Louise Von Franz, Karl Kerényi, and Henri Corbin—were drawn to the mountains, valleys, and lakes of Switzerland and northern Italy…to Zürich and to Ascona, the home of Eranos.
In honor of that legacy, we will embark on a pilgrimage from Zürich to the village of Ascona, exploring the origins, history, and significance of the life and work of C.G. Jung. Our tour guide will be Robert Hinshaw, Jungian analyst and long-time resident of Switzerland. Join us for this extraordinary journey and experience the legacy of depth psychology.
The Legacy Tour begins with four days in Zürich and the surrounding areas. We will visit important sites in Jung’s life, including the Psychology Club, the Jung Institute and Jung’s house in Küsnacht, the Burghölzli Clinic, and others. There will be time to visit Zürich’s museums, theatres, restaurants, and shops. We will also explore the picturesque Swiss village of Einsiedeln, birthplace of Paracelsus, and home of the Benedictine Monastery, the Black Madonna, and Daimon Verlag.
On the fifth day, we will travel to Ascona—on the shores of Lake Maggiore—for five days of lectures, discussion, dream circles, and culture at Eranos. At each stop throughout the tour we’ll enjoy insightful lectures and discussions by noted Jungian analysts and scholars.
