“I couldn’t stand life without this deep meaning—to become who one is by going the inner way.” – Rivkah Kluger
“l think of myself as a so-called orthodox Jungian. I mean Jung had enough to say that I’m still trying to catch hold of all of it, you see.” – Yehezkel Kluger
Dr. Kluger was born in Bern, Switzerland in 1907. She trained directly with C.G. Jung while in graduate school. Her dissertation on Satan in the Old Testament was later published as a book. She practiced for many years in Los Angeles and taught seminars all over the world on mythology and biblical stories. She and Yehezkel moved to Israel in 1969 and continued their work. She died at home peacefully in Israel in 1987. Here she gives impressions of Jung, discusses problems of modem women and the nature of individuation.
