The Wisdom of J. Marvin Spiegelman, Ph.D., Volume I – Selected Writings, is filled with the rich wisdom and deep knowledge acquired throughout many years of personal and professional experience, as a Jungian Analyst, teacher, creative thinker and person on a quest.J. Marvin Spiegelman, Ph.D., (1926 – 2017) was a Diplomate in clinical psychology and graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. He had his own private practice in California. He taught at UCLA and USC, consulted and lectured widely in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. He was a prolific writer, beginning with his first book, The Tree of Life. It was part of the psycho-mythology series, in which he explored the age-old passions of lust, power, betrayal, greed, and the other appetites of the human soul, as well the psychic needs for love, creativity and religion. Using the technique of active imagination, he invited the reader to join his universal journey into the psyche. Through the analysis of world myth, he explored the structures of the archetypes as they relate to the interior world of the individual. Dr. Spiegelman was an explorer of life and he wanted to share his experiences and knowledge. The Unhealed Healer is primarily a record of Dr. Spiegelman’s experiences [during] the first four years of an eight-year Reichian therapy with the famed Dr. Francis Israel Regardie. “I undertook Reichian therapy to get ‘out of my mind’ and into my body…” From the Preface of The Unhealed Healer –J. Marvin Spiegelman, Ph.D. “As he fervently articulated, lectured, and wrote, J. Marvin Spiegelman was dedicated to searching the spiritual paths within oneself and in the deepest experience of relationship…” –Barry Miller, a past president of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles “Psychotherapy, in contrast with Behavior Modification, has to do with the soul. It is an art and a sensitivity to individuals, not a technique nor a science. All that one learns–history of symbols, case studies, psychiatry and psychology, the arts, and from physical and biological sciences–is only background for the moment when one is confronted with the individuality of that suffering person who presents himself or herself for therapy or analysis…” From Jungian Analysts: Their Visions and Vulnerabilities Edited by J. Marvin Spiegelman, Ph.D.
