In June 2021 the Korean Society for Analytical Psychology held a conference to commemorate the 60th anniversary of C.G. Jung’s death.  For that conference, Dr. Isler, who is in his 90s, gave a short talk of about thirty minutes on what he considers, after a lifetime of Jungian thought, to be “the most important aspect of Jungian psychology."  Due to Dr. Isler’s current health status, he will not be able to join us in person as previously announced.  As a result, he requests that we view a video of this talk, followed by a panel discussion with a small group of Jungian analysts who know Dr. Isler and are familiar with his life and approach to inner work.

Dr. Gotthilf Isler, PhD, was born in 1930 in Zurich, Switzerland. He studied Folklore, European Folk-Literature and History of Religion in Zurich and worked for many years with Dr. Marie-Louise von Franz. He trained as a Jungian analyst at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich where he was later a training analyst and lecturer. In 1989, together with Hansueli Etter he founded and edited the journal Jungiana, Beiträge zur Psychologie von C. G. Jung. He is a founding member of the Research and Training Centre for Depth Psychology According to C. G. Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz and from 1995 to 2005 was its president. His research focuses primarily on popular legends of the Swiss alps.
