C. G. Jung said that the modern world has lost touch with our collective myth and that the mystery of who we are lies buried deep within our individual souls. Our dreams, fantasies, and irrational longings connect us with the archetypal world of imagination and can guide us in our search for meaning in life. Join us for the launch of Marlene Schiwy's new book, Gypsy Fugue: An Archetypal Memoir, which tells the tale of her lifelong relationship with the gypsy archetype. In this presentation we will wander through the vibrant, colourful territory of the archetypal gypsy and celebrate the strange unbidden passions that lie inside our souls.

"Gypsy Fugue is a beautiful and soulful book."
