Bud and Massimilla HarrisWe are practicing Jungian analysts in Asheville, North Carolina. As graduates of the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, we have worked extensively with people on relationship problems, personal issues, dreams, and individuation for many years. While people come to see us initially because of problems and difficulties that often include symptoms like depression, relationship problems, or career change, our work focuses on enabling the higher development of the person through fostering C.G. Jung’s Individuation process. This process renews our personal consciousness and helps us examine all of our assumptions about ourselves and our lives, and assists us in growing beyond our difficulties and in uncovering our hidden potentials.

In order to share this important work and and make Jung’s concepts more available to the general reader, we are also passionate authors. The need for respecting and healing the feminine in ourselves and our culture has been a key area of focus for us. Together and separately, we have authored fifteen books and have lectured widely.

Changing Our Fate

As we wander on these journeys, we find that just like in the stories, we often begin in shadowy places, dark forests of the heart or lonely castles that reflect some of the gloomiest wounded and denied places within the kingdom of ourselves. Along the way, we will meet monsters, strange animals (even talking ones), and extraordinary people like dwarfs, witches, beggars, old hags, and even the devil. Some of these figures are helpful; others try to hinder us or even destroy us. But if we want to follow the maps laid out by these stories and to be transported by the stories, we must remember to embrace the world of metaphor because, in reality, the story is within us.
