Welcome to the Jung Library
We are open on TUESDAYS and WEDNESDAYS from 11 AM to 7 PM.
123 Pioneer Street (Unit 6) Barangay Highway Hills, Mandaluyong City.
The Jung Library in Pioneer St., is envisioned to be a soul space. To think. To read. To be in silence. To write. To study. To be enlightened. To be inspired. To be immersed in wisdom. To individuate.
History and Mission
The JUNG Library was launched in July 26, 2007, which was also the 132nd birthday of Carl Jung.
The library supports the individuation journey of participants of The Carl Jung Circle Center’s workshops. It is also meant for the further development of psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors and those in the healing profession, as well as students in psychology. And lastly, it is meant for individuals who wish to do soul work by reflecting on the aha! wisdom of these books.
The JUNG Library was initiated by the Friends of Jung Society – the mother and “humus” group, and The Carl Jung Circle Center – a broad Jungian-oriented community of professionals, individuals and groups. Its original location was at the RMY Consultancy office in Reposo, Makati.
The Library houses the private collection of initially eight individuals who generously (and with separation anxiety) loaned their books to the library. These are: Lizanne Alcazaren, Alex Tee, Rose Marie Yenko, Dr. Dido Gustilo, Ramon Abola (from the collection of his late wife, Marlene Abola), Elaine Lim, Dr. Rene Samaniego and Len Fernandez. It also houses the archive (notes, papers, a few books) of the late Filipina Jungian Analyst, Dr. Eliza Baja. In recent years, Dr. Ruth Hill and Dr. Garett Hill donated valuable Jungian journals. AJ Sagmit also loaned a vast number of his Jungian books.
The books in the Library include the works of Carl Jung, other known Jungian Analysts such as Marie Louise Von books Franz, Barbara Hannah, and Edward Edinger, and other contemporary Jungian Analysts and authors – Jean Shinoda Bolen, June Singer, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Marion Woodman, Carole Pearson, Daryl Sharp, Kathrin Asper, Verena Kast, Robert Johnson, Joseph Campbell, Jean Houston, Robert Bly, James Hillman, Thomas Moore, Robert Moore, Ira Progoff, Murray Stein and many others. The library is likewise building up its collection of books from the faculty of the PACIFICA Graduate Institute.
These books have been sourced from Jung Institutes and universities abroad, from bookshops – local, foreign and second-hand, from assiduous searches on the Net, from friends and other collectors.
Included in this collection are books on myths, fairy tales, arts therapy, and other psychology books. These books and materials are precious. Thank you to these collectors!
