Confrontation with the Unconscious: Jungian Depth Psychology and Psychedelic Experience

Description:
Jungian depth psychology and psychedelic psychotherapy are both concerned with coming to terms with unconscious drives, complexes, and symbolic images. Unaware of significant evidence for the safe clinical use of psychedelic drugs, Jung himself remained wary of psychedelics and staunchly opposed their therapeutic use. His bias has prevented Jungians from objectively considering the benefits as well as the risks of using psychedelics for psychological healing and growth.
br>"Confrontation with the Unconscious" intertwines psychedelic research, personal accounts of psychedelic experiences, and C. G. Jung s work on trauma, the shadow, psychosis, and psychospiritual transformation including Jung s own confrontation with the unconscious to show the relevance of Jung s penetrating insights to the work of Stanislav Grof, Ann Shulgin, Ronald Sandison, Margot Cutner, among other psychedelic and transpersonal researchers, and to demonstrate the great value of Jung s penetrating insights for understanding difficult psychedelic experiences and promoting safe and effective psychedelic exploration and psychotherapy."
