Since launching this blog last year, we have been posting Marc Bregman’s teachings about Carl Jung’s incredible personal journey chronicled in his The Red Book and the correlations with Archetypal Dreamwork. At the start, we posted the teachings hot off the press from the class Marc taught at the Center for Archetypal Dreamwork called Carl & Me: Teachings from The Red Book. Since then, we have been refining the writing into a clearer format in anticipation of publication.
So, we have removed all preliminary posts and are going to repost the newly edited chapters from the beginning of Primus. We are excited about making this groundbreaking work even more accessible. Join us in exploring The Red Book again, from the beginning!
A few first words:
In 2009, Carl Jung's Red Book was finally released to the public after being kept secret first by Jung himself and then by his family for over 50 years. At first glance, Marc Bregman, founder of North of Eden Archetypal Dreamwork, recognized in Jung's story the alchemical process that he and his clients had been undertaking through Archetypal Dreamwork for almost 40 years.
The Red Book reveals the journey Jung took into the unconscious to confront his failings and his resistance to the Spirit of the Depths, what Marc calls the Archetypal Realm. Ultimately, he faced into the terror of his own transformation to becoming his soul, what he referred to as the Self.
Jung's immense struggle and ultimate surrender to the divine within reflects the passage through resistance to acceptance and devotion that is offered to each of us in our dreams.
In this blog, Marc opens, explores, expands, and excavates passages from The Red Book to illuminate Jung's profound descent to find his soul self. Just as Jung had the courage to undertake his journey into the desert, so we too can embark on our journeys as offered through our dreams.
Join Marc for this exciting exploration of Archetypal Dreamwork and The Red Book.
Marc In Action:
As many of you know, Marc has been teaching a class called Carl and Me: Teachings from The Red Book. These teachings will be eventually made into a book. The classes have been dynamic, deep, hilarious and incredible teachings. For those who have not been able to attend the classes, we decided to make them available online, for free.
