Between 1913 and 1932 C.G. Jung recorded his unique self-experimentation that he called ‘his confrontation with the unconscious’.  The Black Books are the contemporaneous and spontaneous record of his active imaginations and descriptions of his mental states together with his immediate reflections on these.

The Red Book draws on the primary material recorded in The Black Books from 1913 to 1916. The material not included in The Red Book is of equal interest and importance to that included. Taken as a whole, they shed new light on the making of analytical psychology and make possible further exploration of the nature of Jung’s project.

George Bright spoke to the Guild in March 2019 concerning Jung’s Red Book.  An audio recording and a Guild paper of his talk are available for Guild members to download for free.
