Presentation: The Mysteries of Origins: the Orphic Jung, Henry Corbin and Peter Kingsley with Paul Navoev

  • Mitchell Theatre, SMSA 280 Pitt St Sydney, NSW 2000 Australia (map)

The sanctity of the person and their singular relationship to the numinous is the essence of Jung's life and project, a passion and perspective he shared with his gifted confrere, the French scholar of Sufism, Henry Corbin. Peter Kingsley's 'Catafalque', his recently published masterpiece on Jung, not only discloses some astonishing and formerly obscure dimensions of Jung's 'Red Book' and his relationship with Corbin, but also compels us to reconsider the origins and ultimate significance of Jung as a Gnostic visionary, psychologist and phenomenologist of the soul. In this presentation, we are invited to revision what we think we know about Jung, who we believe ourselves to be and the potentials and perils of 'Western Civilisation' itself.

By way of background I found this interview between Murray Stein and Peter Kingsley discussing Jung, the Red Book and Catafalque. Enjoy!

Paul Navoev is an educator, school counsellor, and provisional psychologist, with a deep commitment to lifelong learning and growth. As an independent researcher and occasional creative, Paul finds inspiration in philosophy, psychology & Western and Eastern spiritualities.
