Depth psychology is greatly indebted to the work of Erich Neumann.  We will examine some of the vast field of interests that he explored throughout his lifetime and about which he wrote so eloquently and clearly.  These interests include the development of consciousness, mythology, a new ethic, the feminine, the nature of creativity, mysticism, art, the child, and the roots of Judaism.  It was Erich Neumann who developed the concept of the ego-Self axis. 

We will discuss a number of these subject areas and observe how thoughtfully, with depth and passion, he presents his ideas and personal experiences and how valuable they truly are to our understanding of analytical psychology.  His work is a deep well that we can revisit to nourish the creative foundation of our own work as therapists and as humans.

Nancy Swift Furlotti, Ph.D., is a Jungian analyst living in Aspen, CO.  She is a past president of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, where she trained, and a founding member and past president of the Philemon Foundation, which published Jung’s Red Book, among other volumes.  She established the Carl Jung Professorial Endowment in Analytical Psychology at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA and the Erel Shalit Carlsberg Foundation Research Fellowship in Behavioral Neuroscience at Oxford University.  Both endowments focus on understanding happiness and resolving trauma. 

Dr. Furlotti has written numerous articles and co-edited several books, including The Dream and Its Amplification with the late Erel Shalit.  She lectures internationally on Jungian topics, such as dreams, mythology, trauma, the feminine, and the environment.  A long-standing interest of hers is Mesoamerican mythology, specifically the Quiché Maya creation myth, the Popol Vuh.  Her book on this subject is forthcoming.  Her company, Recollections, LLC, edits and publishes the writings of first-generation Jungians, most recently Erich Neumann’s two-volume manuscript, The Roots of Jewish Consciousness
