Susan Edwards has enjoyed a varied career which included teaching, senior administrative posts and ten years psychodynamic counselling.  She now concentrates on puppy training.  Degrees in English Language & Literature and in Psychology, diplomas in Art History and Counselling have in their different ways all led her to the study of Jung.  For the last 30 years, she has read the works of Jung and his followers, taught courses and given lectures and workshops and was particularly excited to have the chance to read The Red Book and explore it with anyone who would listen.   In the face of indifference and even hostility to Jung’s ideas, Susan hopes to say something of what his work means to her and why she believes his thinking to be of profound importance in the struggle to be truly human.
