Length: 1 hour 1 minute

It never really occurred to me that one could experience the unconscious from a different side. In 1969 I said to Aniela Jaffe, "I still don't understand dreams and I don't see the interior landscape that seems so clear to everybody else." 

Lore Zeller describes here the growing menace of actions taken by the Nazi government in Berlin in the early 1930's. Born in Berlin in 1914, Lore later married Max Zeller, a young attorney who was deeply engaged in the study of Jung's new psychology. In 1938, Max was arrested and sent to a concentration camp. She tells the story of many coincidences and unexpected happenings that helped her to get Max released. After two years in London they moved to the United States where Max became a Jungian analyst and helped to found the Jung Institute of Los Angeles. Lore's story helps us to see how tragic experiences of uprooting, cruel scapegoating, and profound loss aroused life saving instincts, great courage, and a strong commitment to the process of individuation in both Max and Lore Zeller. Lore Zeller died in July of 2006. 

This conversation with Suzanne Wagner, Ph.D., a Jungian analyst practicing in Sausalito, California, was filmed in Lore Zeller's home in Los Angeles in March of 1986.
