Dora M. Kalff (1904–1990) developed her Sandplay Therapy in the late 1950’s. It is based on the psychological principles of Carl Gustav Jung and on the World Technique method of Margaret Lowenfeld.

John Hill, At Home in the World

Sounds and Symmetries of Belonging, Spring Journal Books, New Orleans, 2010. 
This work offers a profound philosophical and psychological exploration of the multi-dimensional significance of home and the interwoven themes of homelessness and homesickness in contemporary global culture. Home as a particular dwelling place, as a cultural or national identity, as a safe temenos in therapy, and as a metaphor for the individuation process are analyzed expertly from multi-disciplinary perspectives and, more poignantly, through the sharing of diverse narratives that bear witness to lives lived and endured from memories of homes lost and regained.

The Asheville Jung Center has recorded a whole series of DVD seminars conducted by ISAPZURICH Analysts. Order the new releases here >>>

AJC #1: 1st Pillar: Individuation A Life Long Journey

This DVD looks at the principle of “Individuation.” Individuation is a lifelong developmental process that usually involves separating from parents, establishing success in love and work, integrating disowned parts of one’s self, breaking away from societal and family expectations, listening to one’s unconscious, and finding an ultimate wholeness and balance in life. It is the ultimate goal and challenge for those of us striving to live life to its fullest.

AJC #2: 2nd Pillar: Therapeutic Relationship from a Jungian Perspective
This 2 DVD set takes an in-depth look at the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist. It examines the deepening stages within long term therapy and the complicated interplay between the conscious and unconscious of both client and therapist, including the profoundly transforming elements. The seminars include an intimate conversation with Mario Jacoby, now in his 80′s, who shares his personal stories as an analyst having encountered C. G. Jung in his earlier days.

AJC #3: 3rd Pillar: Dream Interpretation: A Jungian Approach
Carl Jung regarded dreams as central to his psychotherapy. Dreams continue to be held in the highest esteem by Jungian analysts and are one of the primary methods used to engage the unconscious mind. This seminar will explore the different approaches to dream analysis and guide practitioners into a deeper awareness of how to use dream material. Numerous examples of analyzing dreams will be offered including many images from dreams.

AJC #4 : Active Imagination & The Use of Images in Jungian Analysis
In the classic form of Jungian psychoanalysis, active imagination played a key role as a method for engaging the unconscious and for promoting the more advanced stages of the individuation process. This seminar examines how the method came into being, how it is used, and how it has evolved during the past several decades into its contemporary forms. Murray Stein and Paul Brutsche shows how client images are interpreted within the context of long-term Jungian psychotherapy.

AJC #9: The Jung-White Letter A Theatrical Performance and Discussion
This 2 DVD set includes the 90 minute performance based on a careful selection of letters exchanged between Professor Carl Jung and Father Victor White. It is an unforgettable experience of drama and intellectual stimulation as the story of this rich and multifaceted relationship unfolds. The second DVD contains a lively 2 hour teaching seminar from Dr. Murray Stein, one of Zurich’s foremost Jungian analysts. It also contains over an hour of in depth interviews with the primary actors and actresses involved in the performance.

AJC #10 : Carl Jung’s Red Book
One of the most carefully guarded Jungian tomes, the Red Book, contains the record of Jung’s most personal journey, a journey that brought him to the confluence of brilliance and insanity. With painstaking detail, numerous paintings, images, dialogues and reflections were recorded, revealing his rich archetypal world. It holds the inspiration for much of his pioneering theories and clinical techniques. In this 3 hour DVD seminar, Dr. Murray Stein leads us through a fascinating journey into Jung’s Red Book.

AJC #11 The Red Book Part II: Further Exploring Jung’s Visionary Masterpiece
In this 2nd seminar on the Red Book, Dr. Murray Stein enters much further into the text, including the third section know as The Scrutinies and The Seven Sermons to the Dead. Don’t miss this 3 hour seminar going deeper into this amazing book.

AJC #13: Symbols and Individuation in Global Politics:  The Case of Barack Obama
Murray Stein and Bernard Sartorius review a broad history of how humankind has engaged it’s perception of reality, from ancient Egypt to modernity. They look at how our current political splits between Islam and the West have developed and lead to a stalemate of sorts. Their exploration includes an in-depth analysis of global leadership and how President Obama has successfully (and unsuccessfully) engaged in this arena.

AJC #15:  Symbols of Individuation in Religion and Mythology- The Case of Egypt
Around 1500 B.C. ancient Egypt created an illustrated vision of the hereafter that ranks among the greatest works of humankind. Its initial impact endured for more than a millennium and served as the model for an entire literary genre known as “Books of the Afterlife” or “Books of the Netherworld”. In this 3 hour seminar, Dr. Andreas Schweizer explores the realm of religion and spirituality through the eyes of ancient Egyptian mythology.  The oldest of these books on the afterlife is the Amduat, which literally means “that which is in the netherworld”. The Amduat describes the journey of the Sun-god and all the blessed dead traveling with him through the twelve nocturnal hours.  At the deepest point of this murky realm of the dead, while at the very edge of primordial darkness, the mystery of rebirth and the renewal of life takes place.
