Dear Friends and Supporters,
We at the Philemon Foundation hope that you and your families are safe and well in these transitional times.
Thanks to your support, we are able to commence working shortly on Jung’s Unpublished 1923 Polzeath Lectures.
In the summer of 1923, Jung presented a series of fourteen lectures over the course of a fortnight in Polzeath in Cornwall, a beachside village on the estuary of the Camel river, to a group of about 30 participants.
The subjects of his lectures was the technique of analysis and the historical and psychological effects of Christianity.
He presented his most extended treatment of these subjects up to this point.
lectures were organised by H. G. Baynes and Esther Harding.
From the recollections of participants, this was a memorable occasion.
Barbara Hannah noted, “All of Jung’s pupils who attended it were still constantly talking about it, most especially Esther Harding, on whom it had made a deep impression.”
Cary Baynes once referred to “the vigor and color of his speech all the directness and simplicity that come when as at Cornwall the fire burns in him.”
Several sets of notes by various auditors exist, but until now they have not been collated, edited and published.
We would like to invite you to a free donor webinar on this project, presented by Sonu Shamdasani and Christopher Wagner on Sunday 21 November, 2pm-3.30pm (Eastern Standard Time, USA), which, thanks to your support, we will be able to commence working on shortly.
Free for past, present and new individual donors as well as to anyone who has made a pledge to our successful crowdfunding project for Jung’s unpublished book on alchemy.
