Luella Sibbald: Memory of Toni Wolff


C.G. Jung, Emma Jung and Toni Wolff: A Collection of Remembrances

In 1948 I planned to go to Zurich to have some work with Miss Toni Wolff.

As it got near the time to go, several people intimated to me that Miss Wolff was not too easy a person to work with, that she had a very high standard about her work and could be quite severe.

On the first morning I went a bit tentatively to my hour.

Although Miss Wolff was a very serious person and could appear severe until she smiled, whether it was my feeling approach in contrast to her thinking, or not, we “clicked” immediately.

I deeply appreciated her as a wise person and I looked forward to every hour of our weeks together.

She conveyed her great respect for the unconscious and did expect a person to spend time and energy on the

inner work when working with her.

In one interview I told her that as a teenager and in early university years I was very interested in astrology, but people belittled it so emphatically I had buried the interest.

She stated, “I think it is very important that you don’t’ let early interests go underground.”

Within seven years I was working hard at it and astrology has continued to be an important part of my life.

With the Aquarian Age so near it has been a satisfaction to be able to understand more thoroughly what is expected of us to meet the challenge of this age.

From a Greek myth I sound a statement, “The sun follows in the footsteps of God. The footsteps are the signs of the Zodiac. With every footstep the rituals and forms of religion must change.”

This may explain certain things which are happening now.Luella Sibbald, J.E.T., Page 82
