“It is an audacious notion to put forth in this age of science and wilful determination that one’s existence is somehow inspired, guided, and even managed by unseen forces outside our control. Whether called fate, destiny, or the hand of God, slender threads are at work bringing coherence and continuity to our lives. Over time they weave a remarkable tapestry.”

Robert A. Johnson

Prologue to “Balancing Heaven and Earth”



obert A. Johnson, noted lecturer, author, and Jungian analyst has introduced millions of people to the thoughts of C.G. Jung through his books “He”, “She”, “We”, “Inner work”, “Owning your own Shadow”, etc. In this engaging and revelatory set of interviews with Houston analyst J. Pittman McGehee, Robert Johnson explores the range of his work and life experience and traces the “slender threads” that have led him along his path.


We shall view and discuss selected portions of the interview over two monthly meetings – May and June.
