If you prefer to watch a video, then you may like to have a look at the Introduction which was delivered at the inaugural session of the Cambridge Jungian Circle. This is work in progress and is not yet available.
This provides a background to Jung's Life and works and also an introduction to some of the more important ideas which he brought to analytical psychology and which differentiate him from the other great pioneer in this field, Sigmund Freud.
The Introduction is provided by Roland Hindmarsh, one of the founders of CJC and has been 'retrofitted' with additional images and slides which were not available at the time it was filmed.
John Freeman's Interview with Carl Jung, made for the BBC in 1956. It lasts 38 minutes.
Famously, when John Freeman asks Jung if he believes in God, Jung replies "I don't need to believe, I know".
This is a Film in which a number of Jung's Contemporaries share their memories of him. It's an hour and three quarters in length, but it is fascinating to hear why they were so fascinated by his views.
Contributors include Colleagues, Family, Neighbours and others who met him on various occasions.
This three minute video clip from CNN covered the opening of an exhibition and Oglethorpe University in the USA. They had arranged for a set of mandalas which had been made by Jung's patients to go on display and the Archivist of the Jung Institute explains some of them.
The video can be slow to start and occasionally freezes, but reloading the web page seems to put this right.
Jung learnt about Mandalas from his studies of Eastern Cultures and saw that they were an image on the Self. Getting clients to paint mandalas can help the therapist to understand more about the psyche of the client and therefore assist the therapy.
