RESPECTING OUR LIFE:
THE LEGACY OF C.G. JUNG
About the Club
The Club was established in 1974 and most recently updated its Articles of Association and Bylaws in 2010. Its purpose is to promote an interest in, and understanding of, Jungian Psychology and to cultivate a collegial environment in which participants can experience personal development and growth. Each year it sponsors a Jungian Conference and a number of public lectures. Other offerings include workshops, informal presentations, and one or more members-only events. The Club also has an extensive Jungian Library (including a complete set of Jung's Collected Works) for member-only use.
Events will be presented at
Golden West College

WE HAVE MOVED TO GOLDEN WEST
It is with great regret and sadness that we are ending our long affiliation with Chapman University. If you have attended any of our lectures this past year, you know that attendance at our lectures has been growing and we have outgrown the size of our Smith Hall classroom. And if you’ve been attending over the years, you may also be aware of the tremendous growth of Chapman University, resulting in heavy scheduling of all of its facilities. We have pursued without success every possible avenue to find a larger room at Chapman for our lectures. The combined growth of our Club and of Chapman has made this decision to move to a new location necessary and inevitable.
Change is often difficult, and indeed it was with great reluctance that the board came to this decision. Fortunately, we were guided to a new venue at Golden West College, in Huntington Beach, with so many positive attributes that we cannot help but feel "it was meant to be." We will be moving to a large and beautiful wheelchair-accessible ground-floor space with two glass walls looking out on mature trees and lawn (pictures are HERE). There is free parking quite close to the building which is very convenient to the 405 freeway (map and directions are HERE), and the restrooms are directly off the lobby.
The alchemical implications of "Golden" West make us hopeful that this move will serve the club, its members and its mission. We humbly ask that you support this change with your attendance this year. I hope we will all find that stepping into this unknown proves "golden."
Judy Kaufman, President
We are very proud to announce that the C.G. Jung Club of Orange County has become a Collaborating institution of the Philemon Foundation whose purpose is the publication of the Complete Works of C.G. Jung in English and German. In distinction to the widely known Collected Works, it is intended that the Complete Works will comprise manuscripts, seminars and correspondence hitherto unpublished or believed lost. These materials number in the tens of thousands of pages.
Among the current projects are Jung's legendary Red Book, the Children's Dreams Seminars, the Lectures at the ETH from 1933 to 1941, as well as Jung's remarkable correspondence with Father Victor White. Given the magnitude of these tasks, we invite all those who value the work of C.G. Jung and appreciate its importance to our personal and collective journey, to join us by making a donation.

"The Red Book: A Reader's Edition"
has been released
The landmark publication of C.G. Jung's The Red Book in the fall of 2009 ushered in a new era of Jungian study. In his ornate calligraphy and brilliant paintings, the rich literary nucleus of Jung's later works was made available to the public for the first time. This facsimile edition, published in its true size is an exquisite book, but not very portable. The Red Book: A Reader's Edition remedies that. It features Sonu Shamdasani's insightful introductory essay and the full translation of Jung's vital work in a convenient, beautifully produced, easy-to-read volume.
The Red Book is a complex and astounding journey with such wide-ranging influences as ancient mythologies, religious texts, Dante's Divine Comedy, Goethe's Faust and the works of Nietzsche. It is in this work that Jung first developed his principle theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation that would transform psychotherapy from a practice concerned with the treatment of the sick into a means for the higher development of the personality.

From the Philemon Foundation
As you may know, the Philemon Foundation was established in late 2003 to prepare for publication of the works of C. G. Jung. Less than three years later, the first sponsored volume of the Philemon Series entitled, The Jung-White Letters, was published by Routledge in April 2007. Then, less than one year later, the Foundation's next publication, Jung's seminar on Children's Dreams, was released by Princeton University Press in January 2008. Finally, the long anticipated project for Jung's Red Book was completed in 2009.
With many additional projects currently underway, including the translation and editing of unpublished manuscripts, lectures, letters, (enough to fill an additional 30 volumes), the work of the Philemon foundation is certain to expand our knowledge and understanding of Jung's life and work. Therefore the efforts of the Philemon Foundation are phenomenally important and worthy of interest to all individuals whose own lives have been touched by the life and work of C.G. Jung.
Here in Orange County, our role as a Collaborating Institution for the Philemon Foundation is both simple and meaningful. We work to inform our members and friends about the work of the Foundation. We also collect and forward donations, hold events in support of the Foundation, and donate what we can as a club. But most important, we help carry forward the spirit of the work of C.G. Jung through our attitude and enthusiasm in support for the publication of all that Jung wrote and intended for publication. Thank you, Philemon Foundation, and congratulations on your accomplishments thus far!

Thom Cavalli's latest book
The Secrets of Alchemical Transformation
Contrary to many great thinkers, the gods aren't dead – they transformed into archetypes. Chief among them is Osiris, nature spirit, God of the Dead and archetype of Regeneration. Dr. Cavalli uses the Osiris myth to describe this evolution of a god and the emergence of the modern psyche.

Old Recipes for Living in a New World
Jung's alchemical writings are challenging to read, yet these works represent his magnum opus. Dr. Cavalli's book, Alchemical Psychology, provides a reader-friendly introduction to the Royal Art complete with copious quotes, explanations, exercises, history and images, and most important, instructions for using alchemy in your life and in conjunction with therapy.
