Becca Tarnas ~ Dissertation Defense of “The Back of Beyond: The Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien”

This video was yesterday afternoon’s treat following a busy several weeks of sessions, study and synchronicity. I have followed Becca’s graduate work for years, as her interests in the Imaginal Realm, Faerie, Jung, Tolkien, symbols, Story and astrology dovetail with my own. Had my 1998 TBI not rerouted me away from a PhD in English Literature, these kinds of studies would have been right up my alley. Actually, they still are; I just do them in a different way, with different ends.

In any case, this is a fascinating and brilliant dissertation defense. I love how all the academics recognize Becca for “bringing the Soul back to academia.” If you have an hour and 45 minutes, this talk delves into the world I live in, especially these past few weeks. Highly recommended!
