#242 – The Red Book of C.G. Jung with Nancy Furlotti
Nancy Furlotti, M. A., is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in West Los Angeles and is past President of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. As a member of the faculty, she teaches, lectures and supervises candidates and interns. Nancy did her analytical training at the Los Angeles Institute while also participating in the Research and Training Centre for Depth Psychology According to C. G. Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz in Switzerland. She is also an active member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. Outside these groups, Nancy teaches and lectures in the US and Switzerland, and has a number of publications: The Archetypal drama in Puccini’s Madam Butterfly; Angels and Idols, which is a chapter in the upcoming book, Psyche and the City: A Soul’s Guide to the Modern Metropolis. Her article, Tracing a Red Thread: Synchronicity and Jung’s Red Book will be published in Psychological Perspective this fall. Nancy has a deep interest in exploring the manifestations of the psyche through dreams and myths with a specific focus on the dark emanations from the psyche. A current focus of research is on the Quiche Maya Creation myth, The Popol Vuh. Her interest in exploring symbols and deepening her understanding of Jung, have landed her on two foundations: ARAS (Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism) and the Philemon Foundations, where she has recently assumed the position of Co-President of the Board of Directors. She is an enthusiastic supporter of their publications which she believes are important contributions not only to the Jungian community, but to the world. Nancy was instrumental in helping to get C. G. Jung’s Red Book published and in organizing the Red Book exhibit and dialogues at the Hammer-UCLA Museum in Los Angeles. A psychology podcast by David Van Nuys, Ph.D.
