Author: Carl Jung
Jung wrote, with some collaborators, a beautiful book to introduce the main concepts of his psychology. This was the first book I read on Jungian Psychology thirty years ago and I was immediately caught by the subject. I started reading the complete works of Jung, and this was a mistake. Jung is profound, and his writings are not for beginners. His only book for beginners is Man and his Symbols. It is a must.
Warning. It will turn you into a Jungian.
Author: Roberto Lima Netto
I wrote three books for beginners, A short one (just fifty pages) presents the main concepts of Jungian Psychology. It is kind of a Jungian Psychology 101.
Do you want to understand the Jungian concept of archetypes? How Jung viewed the meaning of life? Do you want to have an introduction to Active Imagination, one of the most powerful tools for talking to your angels? Or demons? Would you like to know about the Jungian concept of neuroses and complexes? How Jung viewed the existence of God? What is behind the break between Jung and Freud? And much more. NO KNOWLEDGE OF PSYCHOLOGY REQUIRED.
This book has a double purpose:
• Present to the layman, in a simple and accessible way, an explanation of the main Jungian concepts, using Bible stories to illustrate these concepts;
• Present valuable life lessons embedded in these stories.
This is a Jungian psychology book for laymen. Stretching the concept, it could be classified as a self-help book since it extracts important psychological lessons from the Bible stories.
This book, already in its fourth edition in Brazil, brings light into some important insights hidden in Saint Exupéry´s masterpiece . The inspiration to write a work of art arises from the unconscious, full of ideas that the very author may have been unaware of. “The Little Prince for Grown-ups” gets to the roots of some of Antoine Saint-Exupéry’s Little Prince, using mythology and Jungian psychology concepts to expose some of its buried treasures. As in the book of Saint-Exupéry, the crash that leads the pilot to land in the Sahara desert becomes the beginning of a self-knowledge journey.
Author: James Hollis
Hollis is a Jungian Analyst with a fantastic talent to simplify Jung’s complex ideas. His books teach important lessons for life. After I read one of his books, I bought all others. You will love them all.
Author: Rober A. Johnson
Another great author to translate complex ideas into amusing and easy to comprehend texts. His trilogy – He, She, and We – is a must. He uses mythological stories to explain Jungian concepts.
Author: Joseph Campbell
Someone mentioned that the Greek mythological stories carry great lessons of psychology. I think all mythological stories, can teach us life lessons. Campbell was the greatest mythologist of the XX century. He was also an adept of Jungian Psychology and edited The Portable Jung
He wrote extensively. I will call your attention to a few of his most important books.
