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.

Time 19:00 - 21:00 p.m.

2021 Study afternoon
on Jung and Etty Hillesum

On Saturday afternoon, May 29, 2021, the library board organised its annual study afternoon. Members of IVAP and NAAP, as well as other interested parties, were very welcome to join via Zoom. The theme of this afternoon is Jung and Etty Hillesum.
The afternoon was provided by drs. Harm Knoop and will be in Dutch.

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.

Governance

Now the governance structure is as follows:

  • Barbara Miller, chairman, representing NAAP
  • Bram van Tol, secretary, representing IVAP
  • Eduard Verbree, treasurer, representing IVAP
  • Christopher Mead, member, representing NAAP


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