Sichuan Earthquake

May 12, 2008 : Sichuan Province, China

On the first day of the “512 Sichuan Earthquake”, Lei Da, the leader of our Jung Group at Chengdu, with the other two members of the Chinese Association of Analytical Psychology, started the work to help the people and survivors.

We, our Chinese Association of Analytical Psychology, set up three “Garden of the Heart-Soul”, our Jungian style psychological support work stations at the earthquake area in the first week of the “512 earthquake”. Gao Lan and I, with our CAAP members, stayed in tents for the first two months, and we now live at the temporary shelter rooms. The reported victims from the earthquake number 45 million. Most of them will have to spend three years in tents and temporary shelter rooms.
