2024 Saturday June 1
C.G. Jung and Jacob Böhme

Böhme created a program of "spiritual exercises" rooted in the embodied imagination. These are transformative experiences and centre on self-transformation rather than on a codified religion. Our exploration will be on how C.G. Jung picks up on this program in his use of imagination and on our becoming in tune with Self.

2023 The Kristine Mann Library cordially invited you to join them for a special event on November 4th

Living Wholeness: the life and work of Barbara Hannah presented by Elizabeth Colistra.
Barbara Hannah was an extraordinary woman and Jungian analyst who lived according to the principle of individuation and the archetype of wholeness. After analyzing with Jung and his associates, Barbara Hannah became an analyst in her own right, lecturing widely and publishing several books related to the concepts of analytical psychology as well as a biography of Jung. At Jung's suggestion Barbara Hannah shared a home with Marie-Louise von Franz for nearly twenty five years. This presentation will highlight how her devotion to the unconscious and the process of wholeness led to a meaningfully lived life.

2023 Interactive Workshop

'Edward Edinger about Jungs ideas'.
The meeting was led by drs. Eduard Verbree.

2022 Study evening
Friday May 27

On Friday, May 27, 2022, in the evening from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, the library board is organizing a study meeting on alchemy, focusing on Parcival and the Grail legend.
The meeting is hosted by Barbara Helen Miller.

Perceval was seen as a monster for failing to respond to the suffering of the Grail King, but he was also known to be the redeemer for the realm’s suffering.

In Perceval’s story he makes the perilous journey for the treasure hard to attain. Emma Jung (1960) elucidates the history for the Grail legend whereby we see that the Grail is both the alchemical philosopher’s stone and the chalice in which Christ’s blood was collected.

The redemption motif in Alchemy plays out in the composition of the philosopher’s stone. Hence the composition process for Perceval and the philosopher’s stone point to a similar process. Perceval’s greater personality is being extracted by his experiences.


Now the governance structure is as follows:

  • Barbara Miller, chairman
  • Bram van Tol, secretary
  • Eduard Verbree, treasurer

The meetings of the C.G.Jung Library on are open to members and non-members of the IVAP.

2021 Study afternoon
Jung and Etty Hillesum

On May 29, 2021, the library board organised its annual study afternoon. Members of IVAP as well as other interested parties, were very welcome to join via Zoom.
The afternoon was provided by drs. Harm Knoop.

It is evident that Carl Gustav Jung has made quite a difference in the lives of many with his fundamental discoveries and insights. During the study afternoon, the road Etty Hilledum took, is central. She found one of her most important sources of inspiration in Jung. Despite her early and cruel death (Auschwitz 1943), her life is known or recognized as a road to individuation.
