"The years, of which I have spoken to you, when I pursued the inner images, were the most important time of my life. Everything else is to be derived from this."
—C.G. Jung, 1957

After a long period of self-reflection and self-experimentation, which he called "confrontation with the unconscious," Liber Novus or The Red Book emerged from Jung's psyche in elaborately written and beautifully illustrated form. Through the process of losing and regaining his soul, important tenets of his life's work with the soul and psyche were birthed. After living a life in the family vault, the book emerged, was expertly digitized, and published. Six years later, The Red Book, with its exquisite images and provocative messages still captivates our imagination and travels the world, now in yet a new form as fine art prints.

This symposium brings together Jungian analysts, scholars, and artistic thinkers for a weekend of critical and creative dialogues about Jung's contributions to science, religion, psychology, art, and perception. We will celebrate Jung, the visionary creative artist, and explore Jung, the scientist. The weekend will begin with the opening reception for an exhibition of The Red Book limited edition fine art prints. Join us for a stimulating and provocative weekend in Santa Barbara.
