THE RED BOOK CLUB

The Red Book Club is a free online bookclub with a focus on the unconscious. Books include those on Jungian depth psychology, mythology, alchemy, art and the imagination. After reading each book there is opportunity to meet for a group online zoom discussion. As part of the program there are also guest authors, academics and artists that are invited to speak about a particular book or subject. Guest speakers to date have included Amy Hale (author of Ithell Colquhoun - Genius of the Fern Loved Gulley), Gary Bobroff (Jungian speaker, author and founder of Jungian Online), New York sculptor, painter and art critic Ann McCoy, and Danny Scopelliti (independent scholar and founder of Curio Esoterica). 

The book club is open to anyone interested in the subject areas - no obligation to read every month, just join in when a book or speaker grabs your interest. If you would like to join - message to be added to the email info list 

Books can usually be purchased via  The Red Book Club page on bookshop.org an online site that supports independent bookshops with a percentage of sales. 

If you would like to support the running costs of The Red Book club with a small £2 monthly donation you can do so via Patreon which would be much appreciated.

Book

Dreams by Marie Louise Von Franz

Description

These collected essays by the distinguished psychoanalyst Marie-Louise von Franz offer fascinating insights into the study of dreams, not only psychologically, but also from historical, religious, and philosophical points of view. In the first two chapters, the author offers general explanations of the nature of dreams and their use in analysis. The rest of the book records and interprets dreams of historical personages: Socrates, Descartes, Themistocles and Hannibal, and the mothers of Saint Augustine, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, and Saint Dominic. Connections are revealed between the personal and family histories of the dreamers and individual and collective mores of their times. Dreams includes writings long out of print or never before available in English translation.
