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
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.

UPCOMING BOOKS & MEETINGS
The Philosophers' Secret Fire by Patrick Harper
Author Patrick Harper
Patrick Harpur will be joining us on our zoom meet in October when we discuss his wonderful book - The Philosophers' Secret Fire which he wrote in 2002
"In this dazzling history of the imagination, Patrick Harpur links together fields as far apart as Greek philosophy and depth psychology, Renaissance magic and tribal ritual, Romantic poetry and modern models of the Universe, to trace how myths have been used to make sense of the world. In so doing he uncovers that tradition which alchemists imagined as a Golden Chain of initiates, who passed their mysterious 'secret fire' down through the ages. As this inspiring book shows, the secret of this perennial wisdom is of an imaginative insight: a simple way of seeing that re-enchants our existence and restores us to our own true selves..."
Harpur leads us through history's secret chambers with such grace of language and insight that we forget the hour. I would make Harpur's book required reading for every student of philosophy, depth psychology, and history." DIANNE SKAFTE
Zoom meeting date - Wednesday 20th October 2021 (8pm UK time)
