This three-part video series introduces the concepts of dream interpretation as it was outlined by psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung. There are interviews with Jung himself.
The Wisdom of the Dream, vol 1: A Life of Dreams
The first video provides an overview of the major contributions made by Jung. He became interested in psychiatry during his medical studies. Jung realized that the minds of mentally deranged persons had similar contents, much of which he recognized from his own visions, described in his autobiography “Memories, Dreams, Reflections”. His lifelong quest to explore the human psyche led him to develop Analytical Psychology. This is the story of one of the most important figures of the 20th century.
The Wisdom of the Dream, vol 2: Inheritance of Dreams
This video is a look at the collective myths that are shared by different cultures and races throughout the world. Jung considers these as evidence of an underlying unifying principle in the human psyche, which he termed archetypes. These archetypes reside in the collective unconscious and express themselves to the individual in dreams and synchronistic events. Jungian analyst John Beebe uses the science fiction film Star Wars and illustrates how the ancient myths are present in today's symbolic expressions.
The Wisdom of the Dream, vol 3: A World of Dreams
This is the final video of a three-part series which looks at the life and teachings of C.G. Jung. It examines some interesting archetypal images expressed in modern imagery. The viewer is taken through a diverse range of sources, from Alcoholics Anonymous and science fiction films, to modern architecture and the stock market. There are interviews with many Jungian analysts including Jane Wheelwright, Aniela Jaffe, James Hillman, and Adolf Guggenbuhl-Craig.
