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.
