Jung’s Red Book for Our Time: Searching for Soul In the 21st Century – An Eranos Symposium Volume 5
The essays contained in this fifth and final volume in the series, Jung’s Red Book for Our Time, were delivered at the Eranos Symposium on “Jung’s Red Book for Our Time: Searching for Soul in the 21st Century,” held at Monté Veritá Conference Center in Ascona, Switzerland on April 28 – May 1, 2022.
The papers contained in this volume are published in the order they were presented at the Symposium. They show a deep underlying coherence that was not consciously designed but rather seemed to obey a will of its own.
The Old Prostitute and Other Stories
Manisha Roy shares her love of writing in this collection of over 20 short stories.
The stories of this collection were written over a span of several decades beginning in 1985 and ending in 2022. A few of them were translated by Manisha Roy from her mother tongue, Bengali. Despite the geographical and other contextual differences, the narrative shifted and at times translated itself as if the author traveled easily between different landscapes—both external and internal.
The Collected Writings Of Murray Stein: Volume 6 – Analytical Psychology And Religion
Analytical Psychology and Religion is the sixth volume of the Collected Writings of Murray Stein. It includes works on the Bible from a depth psychological perspective, the relationship between some Jungian concepts and religious doctrines such as Divine Providence and the human as imago Dei, and a reflection on the dialogical relationship between analytical psychology and religion.
Volume 5 of the Collected writings of Murray Stein – Jungian Psychology and Christianity – is currently in production.
The Schizophrenia Complex
Jungian analyst Eve Maram’s The Schizophrenia Complex focuses on the thoughts and feelings constellated by encounters with what we call schizophrenia, for those who experience symptoms, and for those others impacted by them. To do so, Dr. Maram had to face her own fear, denial, resistance, and ultimate not knowing. The events inspiring her were beyond her control and rearranged her life without her permission.
Breaking The Spell Of Disenchantment: Mystery, Meaning, And Metaphysics In
The Work Of C. G. Jung
One of the most powerful narratives gripping scientists, intellectuals, and the general culture in Europe during the early decades of the twentieth century was that the world had become disenchanted: stripped of genuine mystery, lacking inherent meaning, and unrelated to any spiritual or divine reality. In Breaking the Spell of Disenchantment, Roderick Main examines various ways in which C. G. Jung’s analytical psychology, developed during this same period, can be seen to challenge that dominant narrative.
This is Volume 8 in the Zurich Lecture Series Collection.
Four Pillars of Jungian Psychoanalysis
The Four Pillars of Jungian Psychoanalysis by Murray Stein is a work that describes the methods that in combination sets this form of psychotherapy apart from all the others.
Volume 7 of the Collected Works of Marie-Louise von Franz: Aurora Consurgens
Chiron Publications is honored to publish the newly translated volumes of the Collected Works of Marie-Louise von Franz, one of the most renowned authorities on fairytales.
Aurora Consurgens, the rising sun, is a vision forged in the pseudo-Aristotelian tradition that became a cornerstone of medieval Church doctrine and the centerpiece of the Dominican and Franciscan traditions. While its authorship has been shrouded in mystery and controversy, Marie Louise von Franz furnishes ample evidence that this was a final work of Thomas Aquinas, a Doctor of the Church. His vision begins with an anima figure of the Sapentia Dei.
Tearing Down Walls: Ich Bin Ein Berliner
Like Berlin, we all have a wall, an inner wall, that needs to be torn down. It’s a wall we built at a young age, when socialization began and we needed a barrier behind which we could hide that part of ourselves that was unacceptable to our mothers as well as important others. What we hide is the “shadow.” To conceal it, we create a wall that we call the “persona.”
To be a Berliner, is about starting out as a unified whole, as we all started out as infants, as Berlin itself started out. It is then to be split in two with a wall erected between the two parts, as Berlin was, and as we all were when socialization began, shattering our original wholeness. Finally, it is to become one again, as Berlin has done and as we hope to do, if we do our work and if we are lucky. As in the case of Berlin, the wall keeps us from becoming all we can be. Berlin, thus, is a metaphor for the enlargement of personality that can occur when we, like Berlin’s inhabitants, tear down that wall and become bigger, richer, freer, and more diverse and democratic. In this sense, we are all potentially Berliners.
Father-Daughter, Mother-Son: Freeing Ourselves from the Complexes That Bind Us
Verena Kast ́s Father-Daughter, Mother-Son was first published by Element Books in 1997. Since then, it has become a classic read for those adventuring into Carl Gustav Jung ́s concept of complexes-what they are, how they affect our life and shape our relationships- and for those wanting to understand more about the relationship between fathers and daughters, and mothers and sons-of whatever sex and gender.
This book is not only a must read for psychoanalysts and psychologists, but it is also comprehensible and very useful for those that have little knowledge about this field and those eager to know more about themselves.
This book is the first of the series titled Jungianeum: Re-Covered Classics in Analytical Psychology curated by Stefano Carpani.
Eastern Practices and Individuation:
Essays by Jungian Analysts
Are Eastern practices useful for psychological growth? Is psychoanalysis an aid on an Eastern path? Carl Gustav Jung had the realization of the existence of a center deep within our being, the Self, the discovery of which is the goal of individuation: the process of psychological development. Unable to find analogies to the Self in Christianity, he turned to Eastern religions, uncovering and finding a reflection of this miracle in Daoism and Hinduism, while also examining Buddhism and Sufism.
Eastern paths and their practices, such as meditation, mindfulness, and yoga, have been absorbed into Western culture. It is thus timely to approach the contemporary relevance of Eastern religions and practices to the Jungian path of individuation. These essays are personal, engaging, and contain a refined analysis of whether these two paths may work together or are pointing to different end points.

The Key to the Self: Understanding Yourself Through Depth Psychological Astrology
Our fate is NOT written in the stars, as the popular form of interpreting horoscopes would like us to believe. Instead, a serious approach to astrology describes an individual’s special dispositions and developmental possibilities that can be lived out in entirely different ways. The experienced Jungian analyst and astrologist Marianne Meister connects this reputable astrological approach with the theories of C.G. Jung’s Analytical Psychology.
The Mystery of Transformation
The transformation of personality is mysterious, whether it comes about gradually or suddenly. In part, it is the result of the process of aging. Life itself puts a person through a series of transformations similar to the moultings of insects and reptiles. There are also rituals created by humans in their cultures that facilitate transformations to higher levels of identity and consciousness through instigating a process of spiritual death and rebirth into a greater sense of wholeness. The essence of the process is alchemical and what controls it is mysterious, lodged in the unconscious dynamics of the self. The chapters in this book are attempts at exploring those dynamics while acknowledging that they will forever remain beyond our understanding, a mystery.
DSM-5-TR Insanely Simplified: Unlocking the Spectrums within DSM-5-TR and ICD-10
The publication of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual Version 5 (DSM-5, 2013) and the more recent Diagnostic and Statistical Manual Version 5 – Text Revision edition (DSM-5-TR, 2022), together ushered in a major change to the field of mental health diagnosis. DSM-5-TR Insanely Simplified provides a summary of key concepts of the new diagnostic schema introduced in DSM-5 as well as the updated DSM-5-TR. It utilizes a variety of techniques to help clinicians master the new spectrum approach to diagnosis and its complex criteria.
The Feminine Entrapped Within a Fruit:
A Jungian Interpretation
The main purpose of this book is to investigate the archetypal motif of the feminine entrapped within vegetable species (mainly fruits). Several fairy tales originating in different regions (America, Europe, Africa and Eastern countries) were analyzed. Each one of these tales illustrates how the unconscious symbolizes the ordeals the feminine principle has gone through (and still goes through!) in the collective consciousness, as well as how the unconscious may deal with it.
In Search of the Father: Two Plays
When the archetypal patriarchal or matriarchal dominate in a daughter’s psyche, the positive masculine spirit does not mature sufficiently out of the maternal unconscious for there to be an optimal meeting between feminine and masculine principles. It becomes difficult for a more conscious, well-integrated, whole human being to develop. Where inadequate or incompetent fathering is combined with absent or passive, silent mothering, the balance is off; a daughter’s talents and possibilities for the future can remain dormant—or fade away in self-doubt.
Reflections of a Passerby:
Jesus, Jung, and the Power of Choice
In Reflections of a Passerby: Jesus, Jung, and the Power of Choice, Eleanor Norris, PhD, takes us along on her search for meaning through the study of the life of Jesus—the Christian myth. Was Jesus solely human or solely divine? Was he the symbol of the Self, as C.G. Jung proposed?
Love and Soul-Making:
Searching the Depths of Romantic Love
Love and Soul-Making brings awareness to both the patriarchal origins of romance and the unarguably magical, archetypal experience of love. Relationships can serve as an alchemical vessel for the development of the soul as part of the individuation process.
The Collected Writings of Murray Stein: Volume 4 – The Practice of Jungian Psychoanalysis
The Practice of Jungian Psychoanalysis is the 4th volume in The Collected Writings of Murray Stein. It includes works by the author with special relevance to analytic practice. Among them are the Ghost Ranch papers from 1983-1992, essays on transference and types of countertransference, the problem of sleepiness in analysis, sibling rivalry and envy, the aims of analysis, the faith of the analyst, and reflections on spirituality in analysis.
Volume 6 of the Collected Works of Marie-Louise von Franz – Niklaus Von Flüe And Saint Perpetua: A Psychological Interpretation of Their Visions
The Collected Works of Marie-Louise von Franz is a 28 volume Magnum Opus from one of the leading minds in Jungian Psychology. Volume 6 heralds translations of material never before available in English. It explores the profound visions of two ground-breaking saints in the Catholic church, Saint Niklaus von Flüe and Saint Perpetua.
Professor Hamilton’s Passage to India
In 1975, Dr. Charles Hamilton, Professor of Infectious Diseases from a respected medical school in the U.S. visited India after receiving a substantial research grant. There he was invited by several institutes to visit and lecture. He accepted the invitations gladly and hoped to explore the possibility of his return for an extended stay to gather valuable data for his research.
At Home In The World:
Sounds and Symmetries of Belonging
Part of the Zurich Lecture Series and previously published by Spring Journal, this work offers a profound philosophical and psychological exploration of the multi-dimensional significance of home and the interwoven themes of homelessness and homesickness and contemporary global culture.
The Broken Mirror: Refracted Visions of Ourselves
James Hollis’ The Broken Mirror: Refracted Visions of Ourselves explores the need to know ourselves more deeply, and the many obstacles that stand in our way. The various chapters illustrate internal obstacles such as intimidation by the magnitude of the project, the readiness to avoid the hard work, and gnawing self-doubt, but also provide tools to strengthen consciousness to take these obstacles on. Additional essays address living in haunted houses, the necessity of failure, and the gift and limits of therapy.
C.G. Jung as Artisan – Cross Connections with India: Considerations in Times of Crisis
C.G. Jung as Artisan: Cross Connections with India, Considerations in Times of Crisis is a richly illustrated, carefully interwoven tapestry of cosmological cycles with depths of travelling, trade, and commercial significance through geographical history and politics, and the spread of philosophical, religious, and scientific ideas, personally engaged. The author’s life-long engagement with aspects of India started with her birth there in pre-Independence days. Jung’s short but extensive 1937–38 journey to India was on behalf of the Silver Jubilee of the Indian Science Congress Association in conjunction with the British Association for the Advancement of Science.
