Walker and the Jungian analyst, Harry Fogarty took part in “The Red Book Dialogues,” a series of conversations devoted to an exploration of Carl Jung’s work. Both Walker and Fogarty were serene and thoughtful, fitting for a museum filled with Buddhist art. They talked about faith and politics, as well as the solace Walker finds in nature.” [wnyc]

On Novemeber 2, The Red Book Dialogues brought together Twitter creator Jack Dorsey and Jungian Analyst Douglas G. Tompkins to discuss an image from Jung’s book.
Both of them were supposed to be posting tweets live as part of the dialog, but apparently Jack Dorsey lost his network connection early in the evening. The event did include live tweets from Tompkins, audience members, and other Twitter users projected onto a screen for the audience to read. This result was best summed up by a tweet from audience member @trudatnyc:
Twitter users joined in by using the #rmat hashtag. A favorite question of the evening was ”what it is the shadow of twitter?”
