Von Franz’s Writings on Swiss Mystic Niklaus von Flüe: The Emergence of the Alchemical Anthropos (Online)

Steven Buser

Event details

Saint Niklaus von Flüe, the patron saint of Switzerland, was held in the highest esteem by both CG Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz. Jung even declared him the Patron Saint of Psychotherapy, due to the Saint’s deep inward reflections and profound experiences. His visions reportedly began while still in his mother’s womb and continued until his death. Von Franz saw Niklaus as the shadow brother of Christ and wrote of him as the “alchemical Anthropos,” a universal man. His visions were a profound evolution of Christian mysticism. Join us as we dive into material never before published in English, from Volume 6 in The Collected Works of Marie-Louise von Franz.
