Our speaker introduces her subject thus:

When writing of Chinese culture, Jung is best known for his appraisal of The Secret of the Golden Flower and the I Ching, so consequently his enthusiasm for the concept of wu wei is often overlooked. However, from personal experience of working in China for over a decade and after a long life of making a great many mistakes, it seems to me that wu wei is the key to the individuation process. Furthermore, a similar notion is found in the work of Meister Eckhart, the C13th mystic, whose work the youthful Jung described as a breath of fresh air, compared to all the other worthy tomes in his father’s library, even though he said he didn’t understand a word of it. I’m inclined to feel the same way at times!

ffiona von Westhoven Perigrinor is an independent scholar and a Jungian Analyst. She trained at the CG Jung-Institute in Zürich in the last century, is a member of GAP and IGAP and has a private practice in West Oxfordshire. She has worked with psychotherapists in diverse regions of China for more than 15 years. Her other passion is women’s lives in the later Middle Ages about whom she has written several books.
