March 22 and 23: Film Screening

OFJ will offer a screening of the 2002 film My Name Was Sabina Spielrein (in German, with English subtitles). This event will be held at Unity Church of Portland (4525 SE Stark St.); beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday March 22nd. Admission will be free for all — members and non-members.


My Name Was Sabina Spielrein is a docudrama which draws extensively upon a recently discovered trove of correspondence between Sabina Spielrein and the founders of depth psychology. An early patient of both Jung and Freud, Ms. Spielrein was a lifelong seeker. In this film, her connections to Jung and Freud are explored in the context of her personal struggles as well as the turbulent history of Europe during the first half of the 20th century. Local Jungian analyst Martha Blake will lead a discussion of this film following the screening.



Martha Blake is a licensed psychologist and senior Jungian analyst. She practices Jungian analysis and psychotherapy in Portland and Salem, Oregon. Martha earned a Diplomate in Analytical Psychology from the C. G. Jung Institute, Zurich, Switzerland.
