This chapter draws on a wealth of teaching experience at analytical institutes on five continents to describe the educational methods used in preparing students for professional work as Jungian analysts. Offering unique insight into the Jungian training experience, the chapter makes a passionate case for a slow, careful, and deep reading of primary texts over a long period of time as the key to understanding Jung's thought. Furthermore, the chapter argues that Jungian psychology should be read not as the rigid doctrine of the master but as adventurous explorations in psychological thinking—explorations that often lead the students who learn about Jung to gain new perspectives on cross-cultural patterns in religious life and spiritual experience around the world.

Keywords:   analytical institutes, analytical Psychology, Jungian analysts, pedagogy, training
