Carl Jung hearing of the death of Toni Wolff.




Outwardly he kept extremely calm, so that both his wife and his secretary told me they thought he had over-come the shock after a few days, but from my notes for April 1953, I see that he said himself that his pulse was still between eighty and 120; moreover this trouble continued for some time.

He had been helped, it is true, by seeing Toni in a dream. .. on Easter Eve, looking much taller and younger than she had been when she died, and exceedingly beautiful.

She was wearing a frock of all the colors of a bird of paradise, with the wonderful blue of the kingfisher as the most emphasized color.

He saw just her image, there was no action in the dream, and he was especially impressed by having dreamed it on the night of the resurrection. ~Barbara Hannah, “Jung,” Page 313.

Although Jung tried to get Toni Wolff's scientific writings published after her death in 1953, as yet they remain unpublished.
