Robert Johnson

Robert A. Johnson has been pursuing inner work since a near-death experience at the age of eleven. The tragic loss of a leg after being hit by an automobile provided his first glimpse of the Golden World, a realm that exists just beyond ordinary consciousness. Like Parsifal in the legendary myth of the Holy Grail, a spiritual quest in his early decades led Robert to improbable encounters with a variety of sages, saints and sinners, culminating in a meeting with the famed Swiss psychiatrist Jung. He attended the first classes offered at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, where he studied and worked with the pioneers of analytical psychology, including Carl Jung, Emma Jung, and Jolande Jacobi. He completed analytical training with Dr. Fritz Kunkel in Los Angeles and Dr. Toni Sussman in London. Robert also studied with J. Krishnamurti, with Soto Zen priest Maezumi Roshi, and at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, India.

Robert received an honorary doctorate in humanities and lifetime achievement award from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2002. Fornineteen years Robert divided his time between Southern California and India. He now resides in San Diego, California, where he enjoys the company of many friends, cultivates water lilies in his living room, and occasionally plays his rare Clavichord D’amour, an instrument dating from the eighteenth century.

Johnson is the author of many books including:

Lying with the Heavenly Woman

The Fisher King and the Handless Maiden

Owning Your Own Shadow

Living Your Unlived Life (2009)

Contentment: A Way to True Happiness (1999)
