Sweet Jung Things

Image
 This was a seminar given on the afternoon of 16th January 2021 via Facebook Live as an activity for the Ipswich Pagan Council, looking at ways in which Jungian theory can be applied to the understanding and practice of modern paganism. I asked the people tuning in to the live broadcast to donate £5 to The Dogs Trust. If you find this recording useful or interesting, perhaps you would also like to donate? If you are unfamiliar with Facebook Live, it allows viewers to type questions, comments etc. None of the comments can be seen in this recording, but knowing that I could see the messages at the time may help to contextualise who it is that I am responding to. For once it is not the voices in my head. Should you have any questions or feedback, please post your comments here on the blog.  

The Final Chapter

Image
 This is my reading of the final chapter in Conrad's adventures with "The Quest of the White Merle" by Lilian Gask (1909). Our hero arrives back home in Blighty for his last encounter with a talking bird. A few people have enjoyed following these chapters, so I might record another out-of-copyright book for next midwinter. Hopefully one requiring fewer unconvincing accents and silly voices.
