10 – Basel Broadsheet, 1566 (detail from book cover) “This is from a broadsheet written by Samuel Coccius, ’student of the Holy Scripture and of the free arts, at Basel [Switzerland], in the Fatherland,’ in August 1566. He reports that on August 7 of that year, at the time of the sunrise, ‘many large black globes were seen in the air, moving before the sun with great speed, and turning against each other as if fighting. Some of them became red and fiery and afterwards faded and went out.’ As the illustration shows, this sighting was made in Basel. The dark colour of the Ufos may be due to their having been seen against the light of the rising sun. Some of them were bright and fiery. Their speed and irregular motion are typical Ufo features.” ~C.G. Jung, Flying Saucers, p. 95 (of course)
Ken James is a diplomate Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice in Chicago, and the founder and director of The Soulwork Center, a Jungian-oriented resource center dedicated to facilitating the process of individuation as understood by the psychiatrist and philosopher C.G. Jung.
Dr. James is also the Director of Student Services at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, where he coordinates all services for students with learning, emotional and behavioral needs from ages 3 years through senior year of high school.
In addition to his psychoanalytic practice, he holds the rank of professor emeritus after a thirty-three year career as a university professor. Ken received his Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 1975, and his diploma in Analytical Psychology from the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago in 1993. Ken did training in The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music at the Institute for Consciousness and Music in Baltimore, Maryland in the late 1970s. He also did four years of post-doctoral study in theology and scripture at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood in the early 1980s, and ended up teaching preaching there for a time.
He studied vocal music at the American Conservatory of Music, and appeared at Zanie’s Comedy Club, Court Theatre, and The Repertory Opera Theatre of Oak Park. He also performed flamenco with the Ensemble Español, under the stage name Francisco Santos. He has served on the faculty at Roosevelt University, Northeastern Illinois University, and Northwestern University. He has lectured and conducted workshops internationally on Divination and Synchronicity, Dream Interpretation, and The Tarot and its relationship to Jung’s psychology.
Ken’s spirituality draws from several sources. He was raised Roman Catholic, but in a “mixed home”—his father was Episcopalian. As he matured, his Catholicism was formed more fully by the Trappists, St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, and the Sisters of Saint Agnes. As a child he would go with neighborhood friends to the Chicago Buddhist Temple, which at the time was around the corner from his home, and down the street from the Catholic church he attended with his family.
He took lay ordination as a Zen Buddhist in 1995 under Roshi Richard Langlois of the Zen Buddhist Temple of Chicago. Ken also became familiar with Judaism by attending services occasionally with his godfather’s wife, who was Jewish. Later, he studied the Kabbalah with the Lubavitcher Rabbi Meir Chai Benhiyoun of the Chabad of the Loop, Gold Coast and Lincoln Park.
Coming from a Scottish family (on his father’s side) with several talented psychics going back several generations, Ken has always been comfortable with the intuitive dimension. He realized that Carl Jung’s teachings on the structure and dynamics of the psyche provided grounding and clarity on a personal level, and deep professional fulfillment as well. Always eager to learn new things and walk new paths, around ten years ago Ken found his way to the oldest spiritualist church in Chicago, The Church of the Spirit, where he now serves as an assistant pastor and medium.
Ken’s interest in near-death experiences stems from his practice. Over the past twenty-five years, he has worked with several analysands who were experiencers before they began analysis, and other analysands had near-death experiences during the time that they were doing their analytic work with him. Ken finds that Jung’s psychology lends itself to a deeper understanding of near-death phenomena, possibly because of Jung’s own near-death event. Ken is particularly interested in the relationship between near-death experiences, spirituality, Jung's archetypes of the collective unconscious, and the practice of consciousness in daily life.
Laura London studied experimental psychology at the University of Washington in Seattle and went on to earn her degree in neuropsychology from John Carroll University in Cleveland.
After working in the fields of neurology, neuroimaging, and nuclear medicine she entered into a lengthy Jungian analysis which led her to delve deeply into the work of Carl Gustav Jung. She has attended a wide variety of lectures and workshops with notable Jungian analysts and authors, and has worked closely with the Jung Association of Central Ohio and the C.G. Jung Center in Chicago.
Laura is a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation and Kundalini Yoga, and has been a student of astrology for over 20 years. After receiving extensive training in remote viewing from a prominent member of the US government's StarGate program, she worked briefly for a time as an operational remote viewer. Recently, she spent three years traveling with Tibetan Buddhist monks on the Mystical Arts of Tibet tour and is an avid supporter of Drepung Loseling Monastery in South India.
She is the creator and host of the podcast, Speaking of Jung: Interviews with Jungian Analysts. Her frequent guests include renowned Jungian analysts Dr. James Hollis and Dr. Murray Stein. In 2015, she traveled to Zürich, Switzerland, to visit the places where Jung lived and worked. Her hope is to bring the theories and applications of Jungian psychology to a wider segment of the public.
