This DVD consists of three one hour films that I remember being broadcast on Channel 4 in 1989. There have not, to my knowledge, been many documentaries about Jung since then on mainstream television. There was also a book consisting of much of the material on display here, and even extending it (see Jung - The Wisdom of the Dream: C.G.Jung and His Work in the World). The films here are very well constructed even if the colours look less true on a modern TV, and some images emerge as slightly more fuzzy on a larger, more modern, HD screen, but this is not beyond tolerance.

The films consist of a survey of Jung's work and influence including his ideas on dreams, introvert/extrovert types, the archetypes and the collective unconscious, for which he is, perhaps, best known. But people familiar with these ideas may be surprised to find out (as I certainly was) that some of his early work and experiments on word association were also important in the development of the polygraph, better known as the "lie detector." As one of the people interviewed here, the distinguished therapist Andrew Samuels, points out sometimes Jung is better known to many as a guru rather than as a psychiatrist. The films move into this area with additional interviews with theologians, scientists, scholars as well as therapists. Of extra interest is more information on the Native American, Mountain Lake who Jung befriended and then corresponded with after a trip to America.

There are interviews with many of Jung's collaborators including Marie-Louise von Franz and his secretary, Aniela Jaffe, which proved timely as both died not long after the films were broadcast.

Where knowledge resides in the palace of night 14 Oct. 2013
By William Timothy Lukeman - Published on
Verified Purchase
Long unavailable except on out-of-print VHS tapes, this fine 3-part documentary on Carl Jung & the mysteries of dreams is finally released on DVD. For anyone unfamiliar with Jung & wanting to know more, it's a perfect introduction, as the first part offers a brief overview of Jung's life, basic concepts, and work with dreams. The two subsequent parts go directly & more deeply into the ways in which dreams connect us with the unknowable & unfathomable Unconscious. In truth, it uses dreams as the key to entering the palace of Jung's psychology, which encompasses many rooms indeed.

Unlike his former mentor Freud, Jung believed that dreams were more than mere residue of the day's events, cast in cryptic form to deal with emotional sore spots the conscious mind didn't want to face. He saw them in more positive terms, as speaking a symbolic language that drew on both personal & universal experience -- the latter being what he called the Collective Unconscious, a storehouse or matrix of archetypal images & forces that all human beings have experienced. Further, he believed that dreams were a different way of knowing, of casting into tangible form our deepest concern, desires, and fears. By exploring our dreams & striving to understand what they were saying, we could gain insight into the unconscious forces that drive us unknowingly but powerfully, often against our conscious wishes. And with that insight, we could begin to change our lives, to learn from our dreams & grow as human beings.

At this point it's good to remind ourselves that Jung was a doctor, a healer, before anything else. For all his depth of curiosity & intellect into the myriad aspects of the psyche, mythology, culture, and spiritual yearning, his primary purpose in life was to help other wounded human beings. In the end, he felt that his approach to the psyche was valid because it worked in real life. His experience as a doctor helping patients confirmed his explorations & speculations, and grounded them in everyday experience. This is especially important to remember when dealing with something as intangible, fleeting, yet intense as dreams.

This series was made at just the right time. Most of Jung's foremost colleagues & students were still alive, and thus able to speak about the man & his work from their own experience. But there's more here than just talking heads, however witty & intelligent -- the series uses vivid imagery to convey the emotional impact of dreams & dream work. For anyone fascinated by Jung's work in general, and by dreams in particular, this is required viewing -- a first step, to be sure, with many more to go for those eager to continue. Most highly recommended!

Exceptional Overview of C.G. June including remastering historical footage to DVD from VHS 16 Jan. 2014
By dlangler - Published on
Verified Purchase
As I continue to be greatly interested in Dr. Carl C. Jung and read many Jungian Analysts greatly illuminating a complex profound researcher and his many publications including the Red Book. This DVD was originally a VHS tape set available earlier and then out of print and thus making it priceless. I have listened to this DVD recently released many times and each time I hear and see new things giving me increased consciousness. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Dr. Jung and learning more about him and the Analysts he greatly impacted who then carried forth this learning and so on and so on. May Dr. Jung's messages continue to ripple out to our pained world.

Carl Jung pivotal in understanding the psyche 1 Aug. 2014
By Brenda Eastin Bell - Published on
Verified Purchase
I already had this in VCR form and am thrilled to get in on a DVD. This is an excellent series, not only on the importance and function of dreams but also on the information in the section dealing with post traumatic stress on returning Viet Nam vets. Not nearly enough of Carl Jung's voluminous writings and interviews have been released to the public. The man was a major pivot in the evolution of human psychological and emotional evolution. More, please.

I recommend this many times over! 24 Feb. 2015

This was a great find! It was fun and interesting to watch - I learned more than a few things about philosophies that I didn't know Carl Jung was involved in. Or to put simply, he coined the phrases. I was interested to learn that like most enlightened minds, he took time in his life to devote to himself and explore his conscious awakening. To find out he was the one that brought the idea of the collective consciousness to mainstream scientific thinking and developed the word association "test" was interesting. And although he had a personal and professional connection with Freud, I found that his work is closely linked to Joseph Campbell's work. And having just watched the Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell Power of Myth - finding The Wisdom of Dreams with Carl Jung proved to be a fantastic synchronicity! This is something I'll watch many times as I explore my own awakening. Also it's worth mentioning that after watching this and then falling asleep for the night - I had a most amazing lucid dream!
