This spring and summer we’ll be sharing with you a monthly selection from OFJ’s 45+ year collection of our past programs. We hope you’ll find them timely and resonant.
Gary Sparks – Carl Jung’s Red Book: Healing the Chaos
lecture given February 15, 2019
Gary Sparks, M.Div., in his first appearance with OFJ, brought insight and clarity to the dense and sometimes baffling imagery of The Red Book, underscoring Jung’s later observation that “(t)he years of which I have spoken to you, when I pursued the inner images, were the most important time of my life. Everything else is to be derived from this. . . .” Within the context of the Red Book, Sparks speaks of Jung’s discovery of humanity’s passion for catastrophe, and how, even if we fall apart, there is something within us that knows how to put us back together.
