Jungian Psychology Unplugged:
Daryl Sharp, M.A. Jungian Analyst
www.psychceu.com is pleased to introduce a series of courses based on three books on Jungian Theory by noted Jungian Analyst Daryl Sharp.
Jungian Psychology Unplugged: My Life As an Elephant
Jungian Psychology Unplugged is a comprehensive overview of Jung's basic concepts and their application. Designed as a teaching aid, it brings together and updates the essence of Daryl Sharp's writings over the past twenty years.
The author writes:
a dreary afternoon in the fall of 1974 I was walking in the hills of Zurich,
feeling bleak and very sorry for myself, when I spied an object on the path.
I stooped down and picked it up. It was a little black elephant made of ebony.
It was numinous to me, a magical thing. On the spot, I fell in love.
"I took it to be a case of what Jung calls synchronicity, where an outer event coincides with what is going on inside. I assumed it had something to do with my psychology and I spent the next few years exploring what that might be.
"I went to see elephants in the zoo; I read books about them; I collected them. Friends and relatives overwhelmed me with elephants of all sizes and materials and numerous objects incorporating their shape. I painted pictures of elephants and my dreams were full of them.
"Now I have a pretty good idea of what elephants have to do with me and why I found that first one. I was thirty-eight years old at the time. I had burned my bridges and I was on my knees. I had gone to Switzerland to begin training at the C.G. Jung Institute of Zurich. A lot has happened to me since, and everything I have learned 'as an elephant' is in this book."
