M Von Franz

One of the most remarkable women of the 20C, Marie-Louise von Franz was an 18 year old classicist when she first met the CG Jung, 40 years her senior. Deciding later to pursue analytical psychology she became respected internationally as much for her forensic psychotherapeutic skills as for encyclopædic knowledge of archetypal symbolism. Von Franz, who later founded the CG Jung Institute, conducted extensive research into the psychological significance of alchemy, fairy tales, and made a particular study of the evolution of human consciousness from its tribal roots to the nuclear individualism of the present day.

Towards the end of her long and distinguished career Marie-Louise von Franz filmed a series of discussions on life and the dynamics of the unconscious. Shot in 1985 by Fraser Boa, a Canadian film director and Marion Woodman’s brother, who studied analytical psychology under Marie-Louise von Franz at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich, the films capture her unique wisdom, which Boa intercuts with people on the street recounting dreams. She died in 1998.

The 20 short films in this seminar offer an intensive insight into Jungian perspectives on life. They cover differing aspects of four main experiential topics:

dreaming and its relation to the unconscious

• men’s dreams

• women’s dreams

• relationships and end of life issues.

**During the week-end, time & space are given for small group enquiry**

Michael Maxwell Steer Michael Maxwell Steer, organiser of this screening, is one of those whose life was changed by a similar intensive 20 years ago.
