June Singer: Boundaries of the Soul (excerpt) — A Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Jeffrey Mishlove

NOTE: This is an excerpt from the full 90-minute DVD.

Jungian analysis focuses on unconscious archetypes that operate beneath our cultural conditioning. Transformation, says June Singer, must emerge from within, apart from any preconceptions of the analyst. In this revealing two-part DVD, Dr. Singer presents the theory and practice of Carl G. Jung’s analytic psychology. Describing a dream from Jung’s own childhood, she explains how he developed his notion that sexual imagery represents the creative spiritual force. She also discusses the “collective unconscious” and Jung’s theories of individuation and personality types.

June Singer, Ph.D., is a practicing Jungian analyst a founder of the C. G. Jung Institute in Chicago. She is author of The Unholy Bible: A Psychological Interpretation of William Blake, Androgeny, Energies of Love and Boundaries of the Soul: The Practice of Jung’s Psychology.
