An Acausal Connecting Principle. (From Vol. 8. of the Collected Works of C. G. Jung)
Author: C. G. Jung
Pubpsher: Princeton University Press
Jung was intrigued from early in his career with coincidences, especially those surprising juxtapositions that scientific rationality could not adequately explain. He discussed these ideas with Albert Einstein before World War I, but first used the term "synchronicity" in a 1930 lecture, in reference to the unusual psychological insights generated from consulting the I Ching. A long correspondence and friendship with the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli stimulated a final, mature statement of Jung's thinking on synchronicity, originally published in 1952 and reproduced here. Together with a wealth of historical and contemporary material, this essay describes an astrological experiment Jung conducted to test his theory. Synchronicity reveals the full extent of Jung's research into a wide range of psychic phenomena. This paperback edition of Jung's classic work includes a new foreword by Sonu Shamdasani, Philemon Professor of Jung History at University College London.
Synchronicity: Multiple Perspectives on Meaningful Coincidence explores the nature of synchronicities from a wide variety of perspectives including science, religion, extra-sensory perception and psychokinesis. It investigates the role of the archetypes, the limits to scientific causality and the way in which synchronicities can open a door into the numinous and speak to the unification of humanity and the world.

The experience of meaningful coincidences is universal. They are reported by people of every culture, every belief system, and every time period. Synchronicity examines the evidence for the human influence on the meaningfulness of events, and the way the modern computational model of the mind predicts how we create meaning. It demonstrates that these events, based on the activity of the mind, are caused by the person who perceives them. In this fascinating work, you will: Learn to use your amazing ability to create synchronistic events Discover how your mind creates the reality you experience Unlock your brain’s vast resources of connectivity and creativity Change from living as a separate being to living as a part of the unified whole Synchronicity will show you how you already create events around you, and make you a conscious co-creator of your reality. Dr. Surprise describes the miracles of your brain’s processes, merging the worlds of modern physics and ancient mysticism to reveal abilities you have always possessed, but which were not fully understood—until now. Learn to make reality dance to the rhythms of your thoughts.
This long-awaited new edition of a classic book (over 150,000 copies sold) is an inspirational guide to developing the most essential leadership capacity for our time: how we can collectively shape our future.
An in depth exploration of Carl Jung s fascinating concept of meaningful coincidences that arise out of a deeper ground where mind and matter are united. The criteria for a synchronicity, how it can be transformative in life and its connections to the meditations and revelations of the mystics."
C. G. Jung had a lifelong interest in the paranormal that culminated in his influential theory of synchronicity. Combining extracts taken from the Collected Works; letters; the autobiographical Memories, Dreams, Reflections; and transcripts of seminars, Jung on Synchronicity and the Paranormal sets out clearly his seminal contribution to our understanding of this controversial area. In his introduction, Roderick Main discusses Jung's encounters with and observations of the paranormal, the influences that contributed to his theory of synchronicity, and the central ideas of the theory itself. The selections include Jung's writings on mediumistic trance phenomena, spirits and hauntings, anomalous events in the development and practice of analytical psychology, and the divinatory techniques of astrology and the I Ching. The book also features Jung's most lucid account of his theory in the form of his short essay "On Synchronicity," and a number of Jung's less-known writings on parapsychology, his astrological experiment, and the relationship between mind and body. Jung on Synchronicity and the Paranormal addresses subjects that were fundamental to Jung's personal and professional development. Probing deeply into the theory of synchronicity, Roderick Main clarifies issues that have long been a source of confusion to Jung's readers.
Synchronicity: the uncanny and fortuitous timing of events that seems to go beyond pure chance. Synchronicity can act as a guide along our life path, helping us through challenging times and nudging us toward self-fulfillment.Psychologist Chris Mackey offers astounding case studies, alongside a lucid explanation of the brain science underlying synchronicity and many practical suggestions for working with it, from journaling and symbol analysis to dream interpretation and ideas for accessing flow. He is convinced that synchronicity has a crucial role to play in helping us "go within" and tap intoour intuitive and spiritual selves. This book is also a passionate call for a new, more optimistic "positive psychiatry" that embraces our transcendent experiences. A 21st-century take on Jung's legacy, this exciting new approach to synchronicity will appeal to anyone interested in the opportunities for personal development offered by altered states of consciousness. "A profound introduction to deep concepts of mind, meaning and the challenges of creating a life well lived for everyone." --Ernest Rossi, Ph.D., author of The Psychobiology of Gene Expression and Creating Consciousness
Understanding Jungian Synchronicity Through Physics, Buddhism, and Philosophy

The pioneering analysis of synchronicity was given by Jung, yet despite the concept's momentous significance in Jung's work, and despite the widespread dissemination of the term 'synchronicity' even within pop culture, synchronicity is often badly misconstrued and remains "perhaps the least understood of Jung's theories". Synchronicity, Science, and Soul-Making has already been hailed as the most important analysis of synchronicity since Jung himself.
