Jung Resources for Pagans

I have just created a new menu on the side of my blog which contains links to Jung resources.  Check it out.  Most of these are hard-to-find writings by Jung himself.  Jung’s writings, I have come to discover, are very hard to find on the Internet.

I also created a reading list of secondary sources for Pagans with an interest in Jung:

  • Cassie

    A very useful list, thanks for posting.

  • Reblogged this on The Darkness in the Light.

  • Thank you for this list. Amazing resources. I have been wanting to find a book on Jung and Feminism, so appreciate that being included.

  • Thanks for the list. I am currently reading “Four Archetypes” by Jung and “Psychology and the Occult” by him also. Youtube has some interesting old documentaries featuring him too. I think I’m at the beginning of a life long study of his work.

    • Unfortunately, Jung is not a great writer. He wrote a great deal though, so reading him is a little like minding for nuggets of gold. I actually started out reading secondary literature, which really helped me narrow in on where in all Jung’s writings I should start.

  • Various collections of Jung’s works can be found on these sites:

    American-Buddha http://www.american-buddha.com/site.map.htm

    Jungland (scroll down to find the English text) http://jungland.ru/Library/

    Gill’s Lending Libraryhttp://elearning.zaou.ac.zm:8060/Philosophy-Psychology/Jung%20,%20Carl%20Gustav%201875-1961/

    Thank you for this list, I will share. Readers of this blog will also likely be interested in my Depth Psychology resource page, which is full of free films mostly of which are about or from Carl Jung and prominent Jungian Analysts.
