Coniunctio in Christiana Morgan’s Visions

Tuesday, March 5, 2019
12:30 – 1:30pm
Speaker: Ilona Melker, LCSW

Christiana Morgan analyzed with C.G. Jung in 1926. Her visions were contained in three volumes of manuscripts on which Jung’s four-year-long Visions Seminars were based.  In the visions the archetype of the dark, earthy, erotic and destructive aspects of the feminine were all present and Jung recognized this.   What Jung did not address in the seminars was that the direction of the visions was moving toward coniunctio, the uniting of the masculine with the feminine as opposites. Our visual explorations will be some unexplored images of coniunctio in the middle volume of Christiana’s manuscripts that Jung did not touch upon.
