Welcome to the New Jungian Book Club Group!
Finding Philemon: a hermeneutic and process-based study of Jung’s Red Book will commence on 1 November 2019 and continue until the end of April 2020.
This study will last six months and will consist of 12 modules – two per month, modules are split into textual study and personal process/application.
These modules will be posted on the 1st and 15th of every month.
In addition to the modules there will be a number of live Q&A format, webinars (recorded for the benefit of those unable to attend live) in which we will address your questions. The dates of these will be posted on the page as events and will also be emailed to you.
Please take a minute to carefully read the following guidelines and Facebook group protocols
- Everything you need can be found under ‘announcements’ and ‘files’
- For additional ease of reference, you will receive an email every fortnight with the latest module.
- Assignments are for your own personal account/record and do not need to be shared on the group page. you do not ever need to publish or submit a single thing during this course. This is an experiential/learning course (study) where we are following a method charted by CG Jung in the Red Book. This isn’t graded or evaluated in anyway. Submitting your thoughts, questions, art, or process is entirely up to you. You might feel stuck or want some support and feedback. Go ahead and post something then. The deadlines are simply for those people who feel they need guidelines to keep on track. In reality, this is a very free and organic process where your freedom to choose is entirely open-ended. There is absolutely no pressure other than what you put on yourselves. But, in any case, do the work!
- To assist in forum navigation: wherever possible, post your answers to questions set on the forum as comments under the post, and we are using tags – use these on your own posts.
Facebook Group Protocols
This is a secret group, meaning only members of the group can see the posts. Please be mindful of the confidential nature of the material and members posts, which are not to be shared outside of the group.
Please be respectful and considered in your responses to posts by other members on the forum – the golden rule is do not offer any advice or psychotherapy!
Rules of engagement:
1) No vitriol, slander or abuse of fellow students or facilitators of any kind will be tolerated.
2) Do not make judgments or statements which you feel “sure” are correct.
3) Don’t save or try to rescue. This reduces the other’s experience and diminishes their process.
4) Respect the other delegates process and experience. We are all different.
5) Do not message other members privately. If you can’t say it on the platform, don’t say it.
6) At the same time, do comment. There is nothing more powerful than being witnessed and seen in this process!
7) When working with the psyche a kindness and compassion is required. For both the other and ourselves.
8) No product or service punts. Memes, and page shares promoting other related services clutter the page and dilute our focus. These will be deleted.
9) Do not block other members. If you are deeply provoked by someone’s comments, you are doing the work, that is why this group exits. If, on the other hand, you are abused in any form by another member, please bring it to the attention of one of the moderators immediately. We will deal with it.
10) You are welcome to send and accept friend requests. We encourage you to do this, to connect with people you resonate with on the group. Please be mindful however, that any exchanges, conversations, meetings you should then have are strictly outside of the auspices of the Centre and the programme.
11) It is essential for this process to work and delver maximal value to the community that all posts are on topic. Please avoid arbitrary unrelated to the text and process questions or comments.
Please be mindful of and respect these rules. Failure to do so may lead to your being expelled from the group.
