The Way of the Dream video clip

The late Canadian Jungian analyst Fraser Boa (mentioned in the previous post on Death in Dreams) made a documentary series called The Way of the Dream, which was based on interviews with Maria von Franz. The film series is no longer available. However, there are clips, such as this one of the film's introduction, on YouTube. Fraser Boa is almost comically stilted and self-conscious, but von Franz is full of verve and conviction. She was the real deal. As an aside, if anyone knows of a way for me to get my hands on a copy of this film series, please let me know.

  1. Fraser Boa was my high school English teacher, as was his sister Marion Woodman.

    I understand that the Marion Woodman Foundation did a 1000-copy pressing of the dvd, but all copies were sold. Why not try inter-library loan?
