ASHEVILLE, N.C., Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Carl Jung's The Red Book created an enormous stir when it was released in 2009. The world was treated to a unique window into the interior life of the great Swiss psychologist. One aspect of Carl Jung's life about which surprisingly little is known is the subject of a new book Love and Sacrifice: The Life of Emma Jung published by Chiron Publications. Carl Jung's wife, Emma Jung, was his professional companion from the earliest days when Carl took his first internship position at the famous Burgholzli until his death in 1961. Along the way, Emma raised a large family, made significant contributions to Analytical Psychology, and treated countless patients herself. The complicated features of the relationship between Emma and Carl Jung are thoughtfully detailed in Love and Sacrifice: The Life of Emma Jung. The book contains a contribution from Helene Hoerni-Jung, the youngest daughter who died on July 1, 2014.
Jost Hoerni, a grandson of the Jungs wrote that author Imelda Gaudissart "helps to keep alive this remarkable, brave, and generous woman, my beloved grandmother."
Emma was the daughter of a wealthy industrialist who died shortly after the Jung's married. Her inheritance allowed the young couple to build a beautiful home on the shore of Lake Zurich at Kusnacht which was the feature of a beautiful book The House of Jung.
