Entering Bollingen

Entering Bollingen

Upon entering the first stone arch, we found ourselves in a stone paved inner courtyard, with another stone arch leading to a small sitting area beside the lake. Decorations were few, and all were made of natural materials like hanging bundles of stones. There were many stacks of firewood, and Jung liked to cook (especially meat) over a cast iron range or at the outdoor stove in the courtyard. The place had the feel of a kind of Swiss Walden Pond, with Jung living as naturally as he possibly could, like Thoreau.
