C.G. Jung, Emma Jung and Toni Wolff: A Collection of Remembrances
Analyst and author Jane Wheelwright was a patient of Jung’s in the 1930s.
Jane Wheelwright: “Jung was a mountain of a man – big enough to encompass every kind of person imagin- able.
All kinds of people big and small found through him their uniqueness. He touched all kinds of people who came his way.
Sometimes it was through what he inadvertently said – more often than not something he would not remem- ber.
Sometimes it was what he did.
Mostly it was what he was: a comprehensive, large, all-embracing, complete man.
He spanned in himself everything from greatness and power to all-too-human failings. He could be irritable and sometimes downright demanding.
Explosions of rage were not uncommon.
He even could be duped at times by unscrupulous and ambitious people.
Sometimes he seemed to reduce to human ordinariness. At other times he seemed to expand – to literally physically expand – to overpowering size.
I remember once experiencing him like this.
I must have betrayed my feeling that he was beyond my reach because he said out of the blue, “Do I have horns on my head?”
Jung was able to constellate the unconscious of countless numbers and kinds of people.
It was an extraordinary gift that he had. . . . I believe he was at his best as an analyst.” Jane Wheelwright, J.E.T., Page 97.
