With the recent publication of The Red Book by C. G. Jung, there has been renewed interest in the spiritual journey Jung undertook early in his career, through dreams and visions, which informed the work he did for the rest of his life. The Red Book, as it turns out, is the true precursor of Archetypal Dreamwork, which invites every dreamer to embark on the journey of death and rebirth, as Jung did. A workshop Marc Bregman and Christa Lancaster, cofounders of North of Eden, will be leading this summer at the annual conference of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), and in the fall at Kripalu, is titled “Living the Red Book.”
