The Jungian Experience

Analysis and Individuation

by James A. Hall, MD

This course meets the qualifications for 7 hours of continuing education


Comprehensive description of Jungian thought, addressed particularly to those considering analysis and to therapists of other theoretical backgrounds who wish to better understand the clinical application of Jung's model model of the psyche. Practical information on training to become a Jungian analyst.

Very helpful
This book explains the very basics of Jungian analysis - and of psychoanalysis in general, for that matter, in a very clear and organized way. I do reccomend it for all those who want to learn something about the subject and also to those who are considering going into analysis, because it contains an outline of the whole process and includes considerations about the frequency,duration and cost of sessions as well. The book did help me very much and I found it both concise and precise.I find it a classic, a must read, along with Karen Horney's books. And I keep going back to it every time I want to reflect about individuation and personal growth.

Back Cover


Psychological Perspectives, vol. 19, no. 1 (1988).
This book convinces me that we are advancing in our consciousness. It is the book I always wanted to write. It is also the book that years ago, as a young analysand, I always wanted to read. Alas, it hadn’t been written yet.
Hall’s book is the most graphic, piece-by-piece instruction book of Jungian analysis that has ever been written in the English language. Do you wonder how to find an analyst, how many times a week to see one, how much it costs, what is done about missed appointments, how to know when you’re finished? It’s all here, even including what to do about falling in love with your analyst and whether there is analysis after death (or anything at all).
Hall comes across as a comfortable, common-sense sort of fellow. Without a doubt, he has a fully operant sensation function. I say that with some admiration because he also thinks and feels and intuits very ably. Yet he never forgets that we live in an earth-bound body, and it is within the scope of that body where soul, Self, ego, and instinct meet. The ultimate center is the Self—the Self as the maker of dreams, as the One who calls us to the Amor Fati, to the “love of one’s fate.”
Hall tells of a dream which urged him toward the writing of this book. In the dream he had a knife which transformed into a sword, which was the sword of C.G. Jung. The sword was so large that, holding it by the hilt while standing on tip-toe, he could barely keep the point from touching the floor. A small piece of metal was missing from the blade of the sword just below the hilt. Jung’s grandson was present and he remarked, “It’s a shame the official guardians won’t let us repair it.”
Apparently, after several years of being appalled at his own audacity, Hall decided he would write this book and repair the sword where it needed to be repaired. The flaw lies not in the theory of Jung but in the application of the theory to practice. Unfortunately, some people have sought analysis in order to bloat themselves upon richly beautiful archetypal symbolism, in total blindness to their crippled personal psychology. In his utilitarian directness, Hall shows us how myths, rituals and archetypal symbols are to be valued only as they bring us closer to our own life and fate. Unless symbolic amplifications are handled in a way to further the rise of consciousness, mythologizing is cold com-fort to the bleeding patient.

It is my practice not only to read books but to recommend them to others. My highest praise of The Jungian Experience is that I have already “ordered” six of my analysands to buy a copy.
— Albert Kreinheder, Jungian Analyst, author of Body and Soul.
