"A Dangerous Method" 
Playing this Friday August 17th in San Miguel ! Who's up for a discussion of this film and Jung's work?  Jung began his Red Book work right after the time of crisis depicted in this movie. How can we use art to help us through these "dark nights of the soul"? is one of the many questions we will explore:

Whether or not you are a fan of Cronenberg's work, this is an interesting and controversial view of Jung and Freud and their friendship which ended with such bitterness. Perhaps see you there?  I'm planning to attend the 3 pm function at

A Dangerous Method    2011              BIOGRAPHY-DRAMA-THRILLER      UK, 99m
Showing at 3:00, 5:30 and 8:00

Dir: David Cronenberg    Starring: Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen
    A fascinating investigation of the relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, the birth of psychoanalysis. The famous case of the hysteric Sabina Spielrein leads to the development of a great rift between the two men, a divergence that continues to define many aspects of psychoanalytic thought today. A provocative work of historical fiction, with a remarkable performance from Kiera Knightley.

Friday August 24th: Theme "Befriending"; how do we befriend image/dream/our souls? How does "friendship" show up in the Red Book? Touching on the deep friendship between Jung and Freud and its subsequent crash (no pun intended for Cronenberg there!), we will also dive into befriending our art, our journals, our words.  We will touch on Cronenberg's film but it is not necessary to have seen it to join the conversation!

Friday August 31st: "Making Art in Times of Crisis"; how can visual and tactile activity help us to express, survive, and integrate intense psychological material? This was one of Jung's main premises for his own art-making and the reason he exhorted his patients to do the same: "Make Art!" was his imperative. What is the implication for culture--can making art help the world? 

Discussions initiated by Rebecca with a presentation of work from Jung's "Liber Novus, The New Book", known as "The Red Book", as well as material from his autobiography "Memories, Dreams, Reflections" and other Jungian and post-Jungian work, in particular that of James Hillman. Join this ongoing rich and deep conversation and art-making! call Rebecca for reservations, directions to studio, or further questions. 154-7010 local, 505-205-1316 from USA; or email
