Practicing Jungian psychoanalysis in China is a challenge for Western psychoanalysts from many viewpoints. This paper aims to reflect on three of them: the unconscious images of "Chinese" and "Western" inside ourselves; English as a working and a bridge-language between West and East; the interweaving of cultural and archetypal aspects in Chinese patients and the quest for transcultural words in order to tell their stories. Practicing Jungian psychoanalysis in China requires Western psychologists to empty their mind of any preconceptions and prejudices and to approach Chinese culture in a cultural respectful way, modifying, if necessary, Western analytical tools.
