C.G. Jung Society, Seattle Presents:
Workshop: Saturday, September 21st
Thomas B. Kirsch, Ph.D. - An in depth exploration of the Kirsch-Jung letters.
The contents of the letters cover important subjects such as the relationship between Jews and Christians, Nazi-ism, anti-Semitism, clinical issues in psychotherapy, synchronicity, organizational issues in building up Jungian organizations, difficult personalities. My father was a founding member of the CG Jung Institute in Berlin, Tel Aviv, London, and Los Angeles. The collection also includes a few letters from Hilde Kirsch, my mother, and a wonderful short history of the International Association for Medical Psychotherapy.
James and Hilde Kirsch along with Max Zeller were the co-founders of the Analytical Psychology Club and the Jung Institute in Los Angeles. My parents arrived in Los Angeles in December 1940, and the Zellers arrived in 1941. Their views of Jung and analytical psychology dominated the scene in Southern California for three decades or more. This letters gives one a glimpse of the struggles that these early pioneers had to go through in establishing the Jungian community.
