The founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung, was a big influence in his field.

Between 1914 and 1930, he created “The Red Book” in which he developed his theories on the collective unconscious and the process of individuation.

He referred to self-exploration as his confrontation with the unconscious.

Unpublished in his lifetime and kept in a vault post his death, the book is finally available for the general public to read. It is a well-illustrated account of an inner journey into spirituality, mythology and the depths that Jung liked to call the Shadow.

It is a must read for anybody remotely interested in psychology and spirituality and it is touted as his most important work, by the man himself.

It is truly a gift to be able to get into the mind of a psychiatrist of such stature.

“What dead souls lie under your sunken tired eyes? What true selves have you let die within yourself?” -Carl Jung.
