Word Collage

The NWA Friends of Jung has recently donated copies of Carl Jung’s Red Book to the Fayetteville Public Library and to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church library. At an informal gathering at St. Paul’s on November 19, attended by Virginia Krauft, president of the Friends of Jung; 10 members of the Friends of Jung; Lowell Grisham, rector of St. Paul’s; Albert Gray, librarian at St. Paul’s; and Bettina Lehovec, religion page reporter for The Morning News, Dr. Krauft presented the book to the church library. The book will also be located in the Reference section of the Fayetteville Public Library.

Reporter Bettina Lehovec wrote a wonderful article on the Red Book and the NWAFJ donations in the Dec 4 edition of the NWA Times/Morning News in the Religion section.

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!

There are some really interesting videos posted by the Asheville Jung Center on Here is a 10-minute excerpt of Murray Stein‘s 3-hour seminar on The Red Book which was hosted as a live webinar from Zurich by the Asheville Jung Center in January 2010.
