THE RED BOOK CLUB

The Red Book Club is a free online bookclub  and speaker program 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 guest authors, academics and artists 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), Stephen Ellcock (author of UnderWorlds and the Cosmic Dance), 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 McCoyand Danny Scopelliti (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

 

TRICKSTER MAKES THIS WORLD: How Disruptive Imagination Creates Culture

By Lewis Hyde

 

About the Book

"Trickster disrupted the world around him, and in doing so he reshaped it. Playful, mischievous, subversive, amoral, tricksters are a great bother to have around, but they are also indispensable heroes of culture.

Trickster Makes This World revisits the stories of Coyote, Eshu and Hermes and holds them up against the life and work of more recent creators: Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, John Cage, Allen Ginsberg, Maxine Hong Kingston and others. Authoritative in its scholarship, supple and dynamic in its style, Trickster Makes This World encourages you to think and see afresh."

Zoom meeting date

Tuesday May 21st

8pm UK time
