The Mis-Reading of Jung—the New Age Hijack of Analytical psychology

I am interested in exploring how the New Age movement has embraced Jung with such intensity, yet has missed the central understanding of the individuation process. This is particularly so in the mis-reading of Jung, noticeably with respect to the notion of archetypes, the role of the unconscious, the interpretation of symbols, and the place of the ego in Analytical Psychology. The morphing of Analytical Psychology into a pop-culture consumerist “movement” is the result. This lecture is based on central ideas in David Tacey’s superb text “Jung and the New Age”
