RESPECTING OUR LIFE:
THE LEGACY OF C.G. JUNG
About the Club
The Club was established in 1974 and most recently updated its Articles of Association and Bylaws in 2015. Its purpose is to promote an interest in, and understanding of, Jungian Psychology and to cultivate a collegial environment in which participants can experience personal development and growth. Each year it sponsors a Jungian Conference and a number of public lectures. Other offerings include workshops, informal presentations, and one or more members-only events. The Club also has an extensive Jungian Library (including a complete set of Jung's Collected Works) for member-only use.
Events will be presented at
St. Wilfrid of York Episcopal Church in Huntington Beach unless otherwise noted.

The C.G. Jung Club of Orange County is moving in September...
It is with some regret and sadness that we are ending our five-year affiliation with Golden West College. Due to changes in the Golden West policies about food, there is no longer any space available which can accommodate both our lectures and our food, which we consider an essential part of the warm collegial environment of our programs.
Change is difficult, but fortunately we were guided to a new venue at
St. Wilfrid of York Episcopal Church, nearby in Huntington Beach. This very large space has some welcome advantages: the restrooms are right off the room; the social hour can be held in the room; and the walk from the parking lot is much shorter.
So while change always requires some adjustment, we think it will be an exciting next stage in the Club’s journey. Please join us in September at our new home.

Walter Odajnyk Memorial Scholarship Fund
THE PHILEMON FOUNDATION:
The Philemon Foundation, in co-operation with the Foundation of the heirs of C.G. Jung, continues with vigor and dedication to fulfill its mandate to bring the previously unpublished works of C.G. Jung to the Jungian and greater public. Under the aegis of General Editor, Professor Sonu Shamdasani, its team of scholars, editors, and translators have already produced Jung's illuminated journal,
The Red Book, and The Red Book Readers' Edition with W.W. Norton.
With Princeton University Press, several other volumes have appeared:
Children's Dreams: Sessions from the Seminar given in 1936-1941;
The Question of Psychological Types: The Correspondence of C.G. Jung and Han-Schmid-Guisan;
The Jung-White Letters;
Dream Interpretation Ancient and Modern: Sessions from the Seminar given in 1936-1941;
and most recently
Analytical Psychology in Exile: The Correspondence of C.G. Jung & Erich Neumann, with an excellent introduction and annotations by Dr. Martin Liebscher.
Further significant contributions to Jung history and studies will include
C.G. Jung and Adolf Keller: On Theology and Psychology: Correspondence and Conversations;
the eight volume set of Jung's personal journals,
The Black Books;
and eight volumes of the lectures given by Jung at the Zurich Polytechnic, C.G. Jung's ETH Lectures. The list of Philemon Foundation's current projects can be found on its website: PhilemonFoundation.org
We are proud that the C.G. Jung Club of Orange County is a Collaborating institution of the Philemon Foundation. As a Collaborating Institution, we work to inform our members and friends about the work of the Foundation. We also collect and forward donations, hold events in support of the Foundation, and donate what we can as a club. But most important, we help carry forward the spirit of the work of C.G. Jung through our attitude and enthusiasm in support for the publication of all that Jung wrote and intended for publication. Thank you, Philemon Foundation, and congratulations on your accomplishments thus far!
We invite all those who value the work of C.G. Jung and appreciate its importance to our personal and collective journey, to join us by making a donation.
The Red Book
The landmark publication of C.G. Jung's The Red Book in the fall of 2009 ushered in a new era of Jungian study. In his ornate calligraphy and brilliant paintings, the rich literary nucleus of Jung's later works was made available to the public for the first time. This facsimile edition, published in its true size is an exquisite book. The Red Book Readers' Edition features Sonu Shamdasani's insightful introductory essay and the full translation of Jung's vital work in a conveniently smaller, beautifully produced, easy-to-read volume.
The Red Book is a complex and astounding journey with such wide-ranging influences as ancient mythologies, religious texts, Dante's Divine Comedy, Goethe's Faust and the works of Nietzsche. It is in this work that Jung first developed his principle theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation that would transform psychotherapy from a practice concerned with the treatment of the sick into a means for the higher development of the personality.
Visit our club's Red Book page
, which includes a selection of the facsimile pages and a video interview with Sonu Shamdasani.
A percentage of all purchases made on Amazon.com through THIS LINK is donated back to the Philemon Foundation at no additional cost to you. Anything you buy, even electronics and home goods, supports the continued editing and translating of Jung's unpublished works. Thank you for your support!

Thom Cavalli's latest book
The Secrets of Alchemical Transformation
Contrary to many great thinkers, the gods aren't dead – they transformed into archetypes. Chief among them is Osiris, nature spirit, God of the Dead and archetype of Regeneration. Dr. Cavalli uses the Osiris myth to describe this evolution of a god and the emergence of the modern psyche.

Old Recipes for Living in a New World
Jung's alchemical writings are challenging to read, yet these works represent his magnum opus. Dr. Cavalli's book, Alchemical Psychology, provides a reader-friendly introduction to the Royal Art complete with copious quotes, explanations, exercises, history and images, and most important, instructions for using alchemy in your life and in conjunction with therapy.
