    One thought on “The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga: Notes of the Seminar Given in 1932”

    1. Every few years the Bollingen Foundation comes out with a new supplementary volume to The Collected Works of C.G. Jung. The typical addition is like this one: typescript notes of a seminar or seminars worked up for publication, with critical apparati. Like the regular numbered texts of the series, the standards are high, the notes thorough. Unlike the regular series, however, there are no paragraph numbers in this volume--a problem should a revised edition ever be issued.Personally, I, like many [...]

    2. This is actually notes of a seminar Jung gave in 1932. While he does not escape approaching Kundalini Yoga via an attitude of European orientalism, I think credit should be given that he was the first, I think, psychologist to look at Indian traditions for insights into the stages of higher consciousness and human psychology. It should also be remembered that he is interpreting what little was known at the time of Tantra through the lenses of depth psychology rather than interpreting the symboli [...]

    3. As usual, Carl Jung proceeds to a deeper understanding of any topic he pursues. Jung practiced yoga most of his adult life even into older age and his preferred type of yoga was Kundalini. His focus was physical and spiritual "so that you may become finally conscious of yourself, then hatred, fear is no more." His understanding of human nature and what we need to do to heal our psychological wounds is, once again, astounding. Take this quote as an example: "Of course, it is most regrettable that [...]

    4. C. Jung at his best, comparing east and west, and how much we all have in common; if only we think, and follow our psychical instincts.

    5. This was an amazing read and a great companion to Jung's Red Book (dream diary). His thoughts about chakras, spirituality and what drew him to the East are noteworthy and potent. Highly recommended!

    6. Represented differently than how I'm used to encountering the topic, which made it interesting in a another way than I was expecting.

    7. "You see, it is utterly important that one should be in this world, that one really fulfills one's entelechia, the germ of life which one is. Otherwise you can never start Kundalini; you can never detach. You simply are thrown back, and nothing has happened; it is an absolutely valueless experience. You must believe in this world, make roots, do the best you can, even if you have to believe in the most absurd things–to believe, for instance, that this world is very definite, that it matters ab [...]

    8. Jung dá a sua visão da kundalini yoga, fazendo paralelos com a psicologia ocidental e as etapas do processo de individuação. Chakra a chakra ele apresenta os paralelos com a psicologia e cada capítulo é uma palestra proferida com perguntas e respostas, o que facilita a leitura deixando-a mais agradável e dinâmica.É um livro para quem já tem algum conhecimento dos temas abordados e interesse em aprofundá-lo utilizando um abordagem diferente e desafiadora.Afinal o caminho para a ilumina [...]

    9. Some interesting lectures in which the images, concepts and philosophy of Tantric Yoga and Hinduism are being compared with modern day analytical psychology. I was looking foreward to reading those materials because I had some background knowledge on both subjects.

    10. A good introduction to the intersection of western psychology and eastern philosophy. I wish there was more.
