After reading Hill’s, At Home in the World: Sounds and Symmetries of Belonging, I suspect the upcoming conference through the Asheville Jung Center may end up being about our own magnum opus, our home.

Architecture of the Soul: Inner and Outer Structures of C. G. Jung

The House of C.G.Jung completes a trilogy that began with Memories, Dreams, and Reflections and continued with the 2010 release of The Red Book. Six authors collaborated on the text of this beautiful book that belongs somewhere between an art book, a architecture and fenestra into the mind of Carl and Emma Jung.

Betrayal: A Way to Wisdom? -by Murray Stein

Jung’s Shattering Midlife Crisis: A Man’s Plunge into “The Way.”

When we adhere too dogmatically to a theory, any theory, we may limit ourselves.
