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 Jennifer Higgie (author of The Other Side), Amy Hale (author of Ithell Colquhoun - Genius of the Fern Loved Gulley), Gary Bobroff (Jungian speaker, author and founder of Jungian Online), Patrick Harpur (author of books including Daimonic Reality: A Field Guide to the Otherworld), 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 click the link below.
If you enjoy a session and would like to support the running costs of The Red Book club with a small £2 donation you can do so via the Buy Me A Coffee link below which would be much appreciated! When we have a guest speaker all donations from that book cycle will go directly to them to thank them for their generosity
UPCOMING BOOKS & MEETINGS
by Stephen Ellcock
I'm pleased to say we have another guest speaker joining us for our next book.
Stephen Ellcock will be joining us in the first week of December to share about his newly released book Underworlds.
A darkly evocative compendium of images exploring natural, constructed, imaginary and subconscious underworlds, curated by renowned image collector Stephen Ellcock.
From the burrows and secret bunkers beneath our feet to imagined hellscapes and surrealist dreamscapes, the disquieting, alarming and wonderful visuals span natural and constructed subterranea and imagined and subconscious worlds. A personal introduction by Stephen together with contextual chapter introductions establish the key themes, while supplementary texts elucidate essential concepts, historical events and figures. Thought-provoking literary, philosophical and spiritual quotations punctuate the intriguing images.
Stephen Ellcock is a collector and renowned curator whose online ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ – an ever-expanding, virtual museum of art that is open to all via social media. He is also the author of The Cosmic Dance, All Good Things, The Book of Change, and England On Fire
