Want to share my newly published book about a remarkable experience of transformation with the Holotropic Breathwork in Argentina.

Want to share a great new book on journaling the soul....Janet Conners Writing Down Your Soul...this approach makes journaling like 10 to 60 minutes of journeying everyday! Profound. Enjoy!

I bought Red Book from Amazon, it is beautiful and very precious. Red Book series at Hammer Museum are way too commercial for me. If you enjoy reading and contemplating in solitude you can get Red Book lecture series recording from Gnostic Society. Dr Holler is Gnostic bishop and scholar is very entertaining!

I'm into the Red Book! The art and calligraphy are extraordinary. I can't think of anything comparable. I've barely started to assimilate the text. I'm reading it in the library at the Jung Institute in LA. There are a few copies available. You can check one out if you join the library and leave a deposit.

The Red Book exhibit at the Hammer Museum runs until June 6. The exhibit is tiny -- the Red Book itself in a plastic case, a few drawings and paintings by Jung (not nearly as striking as the art in the book), and some other stuff.

The Hammer has an interesting series of dialogs in support of the exhibit. I waited in line over an hour to see James Hillman and Helen Hunt, and ended-up watching a simulcast in the overflow room. It's gratifying to see so many people interested in this material!

Some of the dialogs are posted online. Like,
Leonard Nimoy and Beverly Zabriskie. Jack Kornfield is talking with Katherine Stanford as I'm writing this post. Hopefully, their dialog will be posted soon.

I've queued up a recent two-part audio interview with Monika Wikman, "Alchemical Archetypes in Jungian Analysis" (part1, part2). I'm hoping this interview will inspire me to read Pregnant Darkness, which has been sitting on my bookshelf nearly two years.

BTW... GTT has posted a module on their website for this October in Taos NM titled "Jung's Red Book: The World Within." Lead by Diane Haug and joined by a woman named Monika Wikman, PhD - who I believe is a Jungian Analyst also in NM. I do know she wrote a great book called "Pregnant Darkness" which I have in my ever growing to-be-read pile, but I dont know anything else about her. It should be very interesting.

The RED BOOK is as much an art book, book of Mandalas, as anything else. Just by viewing the Mandalas, there is communication value. I like viewing the original format, the first section of the book, even though I do not read his native language, to see what he saw and to see it as he presented his inner material. Does anyone understand another's inner material, I think not, but I enjoy glimpses of other people's process and almost always find value in how I am viewing my own processing and integration of personal material.

Anyone would like to share thoughts, impressions from reading C.G.Jung's 'Red Book'?
Comment by Barbara St. Romain on May 10, 2010 at 6:00am
Just read a wonderful book by Deepak Chopra entitled Life After Death. He deals with subjects like levels of consciousness during and beyond life, integration of modern science and religion, reincarnation the Akashic records, and much, much more from a Vedantic perspective. It is very inspiring and understandable work for the lay public and those interested and trained in our beloved Holotropic breathwork.
