Firstly, let me put in something of a disclaimer: I am new to the Alliance, and if this is not an appropriate topic to post about, I apologize as I am ignorant of forum etiquette. Now then, allow me to explain my predicament: I am currently a high school student at a fairly academically rigorous math and science based school, and though it offers quite a good education, as you would imagine there aren't too many resources there for a young (there's a pun in there somewhere) man with an interest in depth psychology. Therefore, though I have studied a fair amount independently, I often feel that my knowledge is patchy and incomplete at best, and that there must be vast reservoirs of literature and though devoted to such subjects. Anyway, and I hope this has not dragged on too long, essentially I'm asking for suggestions on good books/authors dealing with depth psychology or any other related topics: mythology, alchemy, astrology, eastern religion, gnosticism, tarot, archetypal literary criticism, etc. Thanks in advance!
Great to have a young Jung scholar and seeker like yourself here at the Alliance! Inspiring. I'll get back to you with a few handpicked suggestions shortly, but for starters maybe just mention a few favorite depth titles you've read so far to get the ball rolling. Then also, take a look at the Reading Room group lower down on the right-hand bar and see what others have suggested or talked about there.
More later. Look forward to the dialogue.
