Psyche, the Psychoid, and Parapsychology:
As director of The Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man, Dr. K. Ramakrishna Rao is at the foreforont of international parasychological research. FRNM was established in 1962 by eminent parapsychologist J. B. Rhine, one of Jung's friends and colleagues, and is today among the premier scientific institutes in the world dedicated to the experimental substantiation and investigation of parapsychological phenomena. Such phenomena would include, among others, extrasensory perception (ESP), psychokinesis (PK), precognition, and clairvoyance. …
Imploring Eyes: Grief, Dream, and Fairytale — Verena Kast. Translated by Douglas Whitcher
Fairytales, like dreams, confront us with images that are alien to our everyday consciousness. Sometimes these images seem “fantastic” and do not immediately yield themselves to understanding. Sober reason justifies our disqualifying them as incomprehensible or unimportant. With deeper involvement, however, because the images will not let us go, or because we covet a measure of mystery, we recognize the powerful influence they exercise on our souls. Not only do these dream images herald or engender our moods, good and ill; they can also prompt and guide a process of working through difficult psychic situations. This is especially true in the case of crisis situations — for example, those caused by significant losses. Dreams offer important resources for coping with loss. …
Lucid Dreaming and Active Imagination: Implications for Jungian Therapy — James A. Hall and Andrew Brylowski
Lucid dreaming — being aware, while dreaming, of being in a dream — has potential for significant applications within the framework of Jungian analysis. This paper focuses on the similarities and differences between lucid dreaming and Jung's conception of active imagination. We are aware, of course, that lucid dreaming may find other applications, both in psychotherapy and in the general field of human development. …
Dreams as Complexes: Jung's Dream of the Brown Horse and Heavy Log — Michael Vannoy Adams
In a formal discussion of schizophrenia, “The Psychology of Dementia Praecox” (1907), Jung related a dream about a powerful brown horse dragging a heavy log. … Jung interprets the dream, image by image, in the context of the associations that the dreamer provides. …
Encountering the Monster in Children's Dreams: Combat, Taming, and Engulfment — Denyse Beaudet
The contents that appear in children's dreams may extend to the limits of the psyche itself. A whole universe unfolds in the dreams of children. This universe includes shadow and light, night and day, all the elements of nature — water, earth, fire, and air; animals, fantasmagorical beings, humans, familiar and numinous objects; characters from television, films, and children's literature. But at the heart of this universe the monster stands as a central figure. If we define a monster as a threatening character that has an engrossing effect upon the child's imagination, and assume that this threatening character may take the form of a fantasmagorical being, an animal, or a human being, then more than a third of the dreams of five- and six-year-olds portray an encounter between child and monster. …
Dreams as Literature — Karin Barnaby
[The] observation that Jung is “not in the universities yet” is a timely one that raises an important issue for those of us who wish to combine an interest in Jung's psychology with academic pursuits. Personal experience in the study of literature confirms the statement. Jung is not in the universities yet, and there seems to be little interest in opening up a dialogue between Jung's work and literary criticism. As a result, I have had to seek outside the university for an advisor. It is ironic that Jung's psychology has become a stumbling block for me in the very arena where I first stumbled on him. That encounter, more than anything else, heightened my interest in literature and deepened my understanding of artistic and creative production. …
Soul and Earth: Traveling with Jung Toward an Archetypal Ecology (Part II) — Daniel C. Noel
In 1939, fourteen years after agreeing with the Taos Pueblo Indians' straightforward solar phenomenology, Jung told a London audience that he could not translate that agreement into a feasible life way for the modern West. The Pueblos are “all right,” he said, in their belief that they are “the sons of the Father Sun.” For himself, however, he exclaimed, as a European, “Alas! I can't do it; I can't afford it; my intellect doesn't allow it. So I am bound to find another form” (“The Symbolic Life” , CW 18, par 688, p. 288).…
