Book Launch

Wednesday, June 6, 2012
8:00 PM–9:30 PM

Author Claire Dunne in conversation with Dr. Aryeh Maidenbaum, founder and director of the New York Center for Jungian Studies, followed by a reception andbook signing.
Fifty years after his death, Carl Jung’s revolutionary theories still attract and fascinate readers, as shown by the bestselling success of the illuminated volume The Red Book which was launched with an exhibition at the Rubin Museum in 2009. Claire Dunne’s critically acclaimed Carl Jung: Wounded Healer of the Soul was first published in 2000. This illustrated biography has now been republished in a totally revised illustrated edition which does full justice to his lasting contributions to psychology and philosophy, his tumultuous relationship with Freud, and his wide-ranging spiritual explorations.
Showcasing superb artwork reflecting Jung’s teachings, the book includes works by Georges Rouault, René Magritte, and Paul Klee, as well as works by Jung himself and art from indigenous cultures and the ancient world (including works from the Rubin Museum collection). With the aid of this potent imagery Claire Dunne explores the journey of a healer who honed his skills by attending to the wounds in his own soul.

Born in Ireland and a resident of Australia for many years, she founded two Australian multicultural radio stations and was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for her contributions to multicultural education and broadcasting.
