The Red Book records Carl Jung's waking fantasies during a tumultuous time in his personal life. The years during which Jung recorded his visionary experiences, induced by a practice he called active imagination, coincided with his formulation of psychological types, which was his contribution to the pioneering work of the Scientific Revolution. With your participation at the program we will:
- Consider the artistic representations in The Red Book as well as the comparable cross-cultral representations of Pablo Amaringo, and the mandalas that participants bring to this meeting.
- Explore the tension of opposites, noting that Jung's theory of psychological types is an instance of this principle, as seen in the opposition of differing attitudes and functions.
- Ask ourselves if our own experiences of altered states of consciousness lead us to new insights and to conscious integration of unconscious material
There will be an introductory lecture, application through creative activities, and discussion in large and small groups. In addition to a copy of The Red Book, Rachel will use visual images, music, and YouTube clips.
Rachel Fitzgerald, PhD (INFP), has been a frequent presenter at conferences of the Association for Psychological Type International (APTi) and is co-founder of both the Bay Area and Sacramento chapters of APTi.
Recent past programs:
Thursday evening, February 21 - Finding Value in the Shadow: Unfamiliar Tools for Impossible Situations
Adam Frey (ISFJ) extends and applies ideas from the September 2012 workshop. Thinking of a difficult situation that seemed it couldn’t be solved through our preferred forms of consciousness, explore how we might learn to push back, set limits, or cleverly recast the situation by consciously calling up functions that normally slumber in shadow. With individual, small-, and large-group work featured, the workshop will be much more experiential than theoretical.
Thursday evening, March 21 - Exploring Connections Holistically
Nancy Wallace (INFP), Deborah Derov (INFP), and Lexi Woods offer an evening of fresh perspectives on diverse topics. Nancy has been experimenting with words and type – she has an exercise that will bring you to the edge of your seat. Come see how it sits with you! Deborah thinks perception can be tricky – she provides an experience that will intrigue and delight you with its unpredictability. Come share your perceptions in a playful way! Lexi is a Psych. student at UC Davis and is planning a TV show that reveals connections between MBTI types and the seven Chakras. What better way to get in touch with yourself while experiencing type!
Saturday morning, April 27 - Jung’s Red Book – A Treasury of Art, Symbols, and Dreams
Rachel Fitzgerald, PhD (INFP), a co-founder of both the Sacramento and Bay Area Chapters of APT, offers insights on how C.G. Jung’s personal journey, fantastically illustrated in the Red Book, informs our own typology.

A New Approach to CCC-APT Programs
For the 2012–2013 program year, we've launched some changes that we believe will offer interesting ways to increase the value of CCC-APT membership, reduce costs, and continue to foster fresh learning about personality types.
We are continuing to have six programs in 2012–2013, but are distinguishing between three morning programs and three evening programs:
- Morning programs are presented in the style that we have had in previous years. They are held on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon, with a speaker presenting in a classroom setting at the Sutter Galleria.
- Evening programs are produced by our own members on Thursday evenings in a more casual setting (someone's home, backyard, poolside, or a restaurant). These programs provide attendees a chance to mingle with each other before focusing on an announced new topic related to type. These may take the form of a panel, a favorite exercise, a fresh way of presenting basic material, or entirely new material presented by one of our members.
We invite you to attend and to be a co-creator of this new format.
