This Jasmine Journey is a researched story of Dr. Carl Jung's journey to India in 1937/38 as well as a later vision during deep illness when he witnessed something new emerging from the northern coast of Orissa (now Odisha) on the Bay of Bengal.

There are several reasons why this is an exciting story.  This is the first time Jung's actual route and travel organization has been presented.  In a sense, there is a simple reason for this.  Dr. Rand was conceived in Northern Orissa a few miles from an important segment of Jung's personal journey, and a year before the emergence of what Jung newly saw during a later illness vision in 1944.  Illness can provide a portal towards deepening consciousness.

Because it is the land of her birth and childhood, the archival file of "mere souvenirs" of Jung's journey sprang to life for Dr. Rand in the Zurich archives.

Born into the horrors of World War II, and the tail end of the British Imperial Raj, she was also born into the ambience of Adivasi tribal peoples of Orissa. Settling into the historical and geographic complexities of those times highlights some of the conflicts a depth psychologist would have faced and still faces.

Dr. Rand weaves threads of Jung's India/Ceylon experiences back into texts of his later 'diamond works'. She shows the enormous present day relevance of Jung's mature work - braiding global corporate mining horrors with the field of depth psychology as well as the paradoxical honouring of World Soul.

So sit back and relax and let the drama unfold.  If there are words you have never heard before, no need to panic.  Their meaning will unfold as the story unfolds.

Throughout the story, Dr. Rand uses place names as they would have been used during Jung's journey.  And indeed, how Dr. Rand heard the names throughout her childhood in India.
