bpf members' online event (via Zoom) - please note that registration for this event is essential!

This is an account of personal travels that began over 20 years ago with a dream early on in a first Jungian psychotherapy, and includes ensuing encounters with Jung a racist, the ‘armchair titans’ of nineteenth century anthropology, images from 1950s Britain, struggles with colour-blindness, awaking to White Fragility, and exploring territory where valued Jungian ideas might be creatively re-visioned.
