Jung Center Talk

Erin Prophet

It's been five years since the publication of Prophet's Daughter, and four years since my mother's death. Since then, I have completed my master's degree in public health at Boston University, moved to Houston, Texas, and begun a PhD program in religious studies.

In the book, I describe how working with a Jungian analyst helped me to deal constructively with the very mixed material of my childhood and upbringing. Since then, I've continued my exploration of Jungian thought, and find it helpful in contextualizing my experience.

I felt that it would be helpful to put the book into the context of Jung, something I have not been able to do thus far in the media. The book itself contains threads of Jungian work which are not followed up on, due to length restrictions. I was finally able to explore some of these themes in March 2014 at a talk I gave at the Jung Center in Houston.

The talk is finally formatted for the Web and I'm glad to be able to share it. Thanks to Jones Cinema Arts for the editing and production. Thanks to the Houston Jung Center for hosting the event. I look forward to dialoguing with interested parties as time in my busy PhD program permits.
