JUNG'S GENIUS DISCOVERIES
IN-PERSON PRESENTATION AT ST. GEORGE'S EPISCOPAL, 4600 ST. CHARLES, NOLA
Presenter: Jungian Analyst Michael Vannoy Adams
Freud was wrong about dreams; Jung was right about dreams. It’s that simple, and it’s that important. Michael Vannoy Adams, who last addressed the Jung Society of New Orleans in 2003, will discuss the mystery of why humans dream. He will demonstrate how Jung, not Freud, was the scientist who, in an act of genius, discovered the true purpose and evolutionary value of dreaming and the proper technique to interpret accurately what the images in dreams mean in order radically to transform and expand consciousness. The gist of Jung’s position is that dreams do not conceal (as Freud alleges) but, in fact, reveal with exquisite clarity exactly what they mean when individuals apply Jung’s principles of interpretation. This speaker will present vivid examples from contemporary dreams to illustrate Jung’s revolutionary theory and method.
Michael Vannoy Adams, D.Phil, LCSW, is an internationally prominent Jungian psychoanalyst with a special interest in images and the imagination.
