Creative Minds in Dialogue: the Relationship between C. G. Jung and Erich Neumann

Creative Minds in Dialogue: the Relationship between C. G. Jung and Erich Neumann

This symposium, June 24-26, 2016 at Pacifica Institute in Santa Barbara, will feature internationally acclaimed speakers, including Riccardo Bernardini, Lionel Corbett, Nancy Furlotti, Ann Lammers, Lance Owens, Rina Porat, Susan Rowland, Erel Shalit, Evan Lansing Smith, Murray Stein and Steve Zemmelman.
The recent publication of the correspondence between C.G. Jung and Erich Neumann has brought renewed interest in both the creative relationship between Jung and Neumann, and Neumann’s contributions to Analytical Psychology. Months before his own death, Jung mourns Neumann as his “friend and companion on the way,” elsewhere saying that he only had two friends, Victor White and Erich Neumann.
The symposium will celebrate the unique contributions of Jung and Neumann, with original presentations. Murray Stein and Riccardo Bernardini from Eranos will be among the several prominent presenters, on topics ranging from creativity, art, Jung/Neumann and their impact on culture and the post-modern world, to anima and the great mother, and God, good and evil.
