Stephani Stephens, PhD, served on the Executive Committee of the International Association of Jungian Studies. Currently, she is a Lecturer in Counseling at the University of Canberra and is a practicing psychotherapist in Canberra, Australia. She is the recipient of the 2018 Frances P. Bolton Fellowship from the Parapsychology Foundation. She is author of C. G. Jung and the Dead: Visions, Active Imagination and the Unconscious Terrain.
Here she describes Carl Jung’s encounters with the departed during dreams and visions – as reported in his autobiography and journals. She points out that he distinguished between “souls without bodies” and the other figures of the unconscious mind. Jung’s explorations are akin to encounters with the afterlife as described by Homer and Virgil in classical literature. They are also relevant to psychical research and parapsychology.
