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), 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 - message to be added to the email info list

UPCOMING BOOKS & MEETINGS
The Fairytales of Hermann Hesse
"To read Hermann Hesse's fairy tales is to enter a fabulous world of dreams and visions, philosophy and passion. This landmark collection contains twenty-two of Hesse's finest stories in this genre, most translated into English here for the first time. Full of visionaries and seekers, princesses and wandering poets, his fairy tales speak to the place in our psyche that inspires us with deep spiritual longing; that compels us to leave home, and inevitably to return; and that harbors the greatest joys and most devastating wounds of our heart.
Containing all the themes common in Hesse's great novels Siddhartha, Steppenwolf, and Demian—and mirroring events in his own life, these exquisite short pieces exhibit the same mystical and romantic impulses that contribute to the haunting brilliance of his major works. Several stories, including "The Poet," "The Fairy Tale About the Wicker Chair," and "The Painter," examine the dilemma of the artist, torn between the drive for perfection and the temptations of pleasure and social success. Other tales reflect changes and struggles within society."
