Film: Wisdom of Changes: Richard Wilhelm and the I Ching (2011)
C.G. Jung Society, Seattle presents:
Wisdom of Changes: Richard Wilhelm and the I Ching (2011)
Join us for a private showing of Wisdom of Changes with Richard Wilhelm's granddaughter, Bettina Wilhelmdirector, writer, and filmmaker. Ms. Wilhelm followed in the footsteps of her grandfather and retraced his journey in China for this documentary film. Her personal research and exploration stemmed from a desire to get to know her grandfather and share the importance of his work. Ms. Wilhelm's personal and biographical perspective will be of importance to Jungian thinkers and scholars alike.
Sinologist Richard Wilhelm altered the course of Jung's life when he sent Jung a copy of The Secret of the Golden Flower and asked him to write a commentary to be included with the publication. Jung had been working on a golden mandala that was "so Chinese" when he received Wilhelm's request. This ancient alchemical treatise provided Jung with unsolicited and "undreamed-of confirmation on [his] ideas about the mandala and the circumambulation of the center" (MDR 197).
