“Jung described in his letters how he draws the conclusion that we live always in two worlds. We live in the empirical world and we live in an eternal world… Synchronistic events are due to the breaking in of eternity into our empirical world.” – Liliane Frey
Born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1901, Frey received her Ph.D. from the University of Zurich in 1933. She met Jung the following year. From then on she analyzed and worked with him in research until his death in 1961. A psychotherapist and lecturer, she was also a senior training analyst at the Jung Institute in Zurich. She wrote two books, From Freud to Jung, and Nietzsche: A Psychological Approach to his Life and Work. Here she discusses her long relationship with Jung, and some of her psychic experiences of him as mentor to the writing of her book on Freud and Jung; she gives her impressions of Emma Jung and Toni Wolff and the relationships among women around Jung; she defines synchronicity and describes aspects of the mystery of death and rebirth, including her own experiences related to Jung’s death. Dr. Frey died in January 1991 in Zurich.
This conversation with Suzanne Wagner, Ph.D., a Jungian analyst practicing in Sausalito, California, was filmed in Zurich in July of 1976.
