  • Religious But Not Religious: Living a Symbolic Life

    Religious But Not Religious: Living a Symbolic Life

    In Religious but Not Religious, Jungian analyst Jason E. Smith explores the idea, expressed by C. G. Jung, that the religious sense is a natural and vital function of the human psyche. We suffer from its lack.

    The symbolic forms of religion mediate unconscious and ineffable experiences to the field of consciousness that infuse our lives with meaning and purpose. That is why we cannot be indifferent toward the decline of traditional religious observance so widely discussed today. The great religions house the accumulated spiritual wisdom of humankind, and their loss would be catastrophic to the human soul.

  • Storytime with Robert: Robert A. Johnson Tells His Favorite Stories and Myths

    Storytime with Robert: Robert A. Johnson Tells His Favorite Stories and Myths

    Robert A. Johnson was more than an international best-selling author of fifteen books, brilliant and influential Jungian analyst, and acclaimed international lecturer; he was a master storyteller. This collection is transcribed from Robert’s own tellings throughout the years. Robert told these stories, his favorites, to an appreciative and revering community each night at Journey into Wholeness events from 1981 to 2001. Robert collected several of these stories in his beloved India, but the book includes stories and myths from Chinese, Native American, Mexican, and European traditions. Each story is introduced by a colleague, mentee, or friend whose life was profoundly changed by the presence and teachings of this wise and other-wordly sage.

  • Reading Goethe at Midlife: Ancient Wisdom, German Classicism & Jung

    Reading Goethe at Midlife: Ancient Wisdom, German Classicism & Jung

    Reading Goethe at Midlife reveals the remarkable symmetry between the ideas and Jung and Goethe. Jung’s analysis of the stages of life, and his advice to heed the “call of the self,” are brought into the conjunction with Goethe’s emphasis on the importance of hope, showing an underlying continuity of thought and relevance from ancient wisdom, via German classicism to analytical psychology.

    Map of the Soul – 7: Persona, Shadow & Ego in the World of BTS

    BTS did it again! Map of the Soul : 7 is a capstone of a 3-album project intended to reveal the inner landscape of the human soul that is packed with rich symbolism and woven together with BTS’s signature sound and moves. Starting with the lyrics, this book launches into a deep, engaging examination of the album in the light of the psychology of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. The many layers of meaning embedded in the number 7 are brought to light, along with several fundamental concepts of Jungian psychology.

  • Edge of the Abyss: The Usefulness of Antichrist Terminology in the Era of Donald Trump

    Edge of the Abyss: The Usefulness of Antichrist Terminology in the Era of Donald Trump

    Academic discourse does not often reference the idea of antichrist, perhaps because it is seen as archaic or as too closely associated with religious fundamentalism. Robert Isaac Skidmore, a depth psychotherapist and an Orthodox priest, argues that antichrist, alongside its theological meaning, designates an aspect of our psychological, social, and political experience that becomes hazardous, especially when ignored or dismissed. Seeing Donald Trump’s cultural and political influence as expressive of an archetypal pattern, Skidmore explores implications of taking the idea of antichrist seriously—in order to lift it toward conscious awareness and responsible use.

  • Eighteen East 74th Street: An Autobiographical Novel

    Eighteen East 74th Street: An Autobiographical Novel

    I’m an 88-year-old retired Jungian Analyst. I wrote this book to share a lifelong struggle to free myself from the powerfully dominating influence of my mother, something Jung more elegantly described as “The Battle for Deliverance from the Mother.” It’s a battle I now doubt can be won, although an uneasy truce may be achievable.
