The experience of reading Catafalue is a purgatory the experience of being stripped naked It forces us to set aside all our petty activities and rationalizations that we have used to avoid the depths and the aching reality of ourselves – all of the avoidances we employ for reasons that lie just below the surface of our consciousness which is where we store them in denial so that we don’t have to engage with the emptiness of our lives or with the hollowness of all the ways we try to justify ourselves to ourselves We are shown that we even and especially those of us engaged in a committed spiritual path have sold our birthright like Esau for a bowl of porridgeUltimately this book is not just about how Jung has been misunderstood by his followers It is about how all of us have ignored and neglected the sacred source at the root of Western civilization Catafalue is a howl a warning an act of destruction and a re membering It is the haunting and terrifying sound of a sacred horn heard in the night summoning us to grieve the suffering of the divine and lament the death of our civilization Peter Kingsley is calling us back to what is most importantIn a sense it could be said that what James Joyce did with fiction in Ulysses TS Eliot did with poetry in the Four uartets J S Bach did with music in The Art of the Fugue and the Celtic monks did with art in The Book of Kells this is what Peter Kingsley has done with non fiction in Catafalue Kingsley weaves and holds together in intricate complexity a book that not only guides the reader into the profoundest understanding of Carl Jung Sufi mysticism and western spiritual tradition but also leads one into the very depths of her or himselfCatafalue Carl Jung and the End of Humanity is very simply a must read for anyone interested in Jung and his psychology Peter Kingsley a noted classicist famous for revolutionizing the understanding of ancient Greek culture and civilization has drawn on an extraordinary wealth of material – all of which he has read in the original languages – while creating this bookBut Catafalue is uniue among the many books written about Jung because it’s not only the work of an accomplished scholar It’s also the work of a mystic with a strong inner connection to the man who was Carl Jung It’s a book about the true beating heart of prophecy about Jung the prophet and is itself a book of prophecy

I was wondering would it be appropriate to begin or end this review with a big THANK YOU to Peter Kingsley So it begins with words of thanks And follows with compliments and admiration for his courage – both academic the fruits of witch we benefited from in his first booksand bare human for writing this one daring to write with open eyes and show us all what is there in plain sight if we bother to open ours A courage daring borne out of the deepest inner necessity and honest integrity A willingness to face the anger of all who prefer to sail through life with their outer and especially inner eyes shut albeit they may pretend the contrary is trueIt is a tremendous eye opener indeed and it shows the elephant – ie the Catafalue – in the drawing room of Western civilization It brings back Jung majestic terrifying and terrified and true – teaching with his thunderous prophetic voice de profundis Threads together countless filaments and weaves together the story of truth unpalatable and jarring as it might be in the beautiful narration of Mr KingsleyA series of synchronicities led me to Catafalue and that is how it should be I believe Peter Kingsley would sayIf you trust that inner sense it has brought you here to read this review go for the book it is beautifully produced in two volumes and a physically very comfortable read with footnotes in the second volume The rewards may be considerable though probably not so for those faint of heart and travelers too keen on ego creature comforts You can read it after you have read other books Mr Kingsley has authored but that is not a prereuisite they would then probably come laterAs a closure I can honestly say that I was not so marked by a book I have read in decadesVladimir
