Oregon Friends of Jung

In an online article about this weekend’s Red Book events at Portland’s Oregon Friends of Jung there is this interesting paragraph about the origins of the group:

“Fae Dougan of Portland was an early member of Oregon Friends of Jung, although she didn’t attend the first meeting in 1974. Fifty strangers had answered a newspaper ad inviting anyone interested in Jung to meet under a tree in a particular Lake Oswego backyard. Since those days, membership has grown to 350 — most of them lay people, not Jungian analysts — who support nine educational events every year. Joseph Campbell, the popular mythologist who died in 1987, visited Portland three times for Oregon Friends events, Dougan says.”

Very impressive that 50 people showed up from a newspaper ad and that they originally met under a tree — Buddhist symbology meets Jungian!
