Jungian Odyssey 2008 : Intimacy

This collection of essays is the first publication to ensue from the Jungian Odyssey, which began in 2006 and developed into an annual conference and retreat in Switzerland. The authors are Jungian training analysts and faculty members at ISAPZURICH, joined by guest scholars, all of whom lectured at the Jungian Odyssey 2008.

Addressing a broad audience and adopting a variety of approaches, the authors link intimacy to love and hate, home and homesickness, belonging and yearning to belong, Eros and transcendence, the known and unknown—and even to the encounter with the divine. Rather than seeking definitive answers or cures, the authors circumambulate the many guises of the heart and ways in which intimacy and uncertainty enter our lives.
