Using a recorded audio dramatization developed by Karl Schlotterbeck of Carl Jung’s ‘Red Book’ along with images from the Red Book, the creative period known as Jung’s “confrontation with the unconscious” will be explored within the historical context of Jung’s personal life and the corresponding development of his theory. The powerful imagery that emerged from Jung’s deep engagement with his inner world reveals a profound personal drama within Jung, as much as it foreshadowed his theories on the nature of the psyche, the unconscious, the personal ego, psychic reality and dreams. Ultimately, Jung’s theories transformed modern psychological thought. Through this lecture/experience we hope to convey something of the intensity of Jung’s personal experience, and the meaning of the Red Book upon analytical psychology.
Judith Savage, LICSW, LMFT, is a Senior Jungian Analyst in private practice in Saint Paul, a licensed independent clinical social worker, and a marriage and family therapist. She has served on the Board of Directors of the Minnesota Association of Marriage and Family Therapists as well as secretary and vice-president of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and a member of its Training Committee. The author of Mourning Unlived Lives: A Psychological Study of Childbearing Loss (1989), and a contributor to The Soul of Popular Culture (1998), she has also written several other articles and is a sought after teacher and case supervisor. A former MSJS seminar coordinator, treasurer, and core faculty member, she continues to teach regularly in the seminar and the Minnesota Jung Association.
Karl Schlotterbeck, MA, CAS, LP, provided psychological services to schools for 41 years and, from 1981, in private practice where he explored aspects of biofeedback, hypnotherapy, therapeutic applications of past-life experience (from which came three books), shamanism and, of course, analytical psychology. On discovering The Red Book, he was inspired to make an audio dramatization and, with the help of family and friends, recorded the entire Liber Novus. His primary approach has been to attempt to be true to the images as they presented themselves.
