“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
Quote from Alchemical Studies, Vol 13, paragraph 335 (pg 265).
Swiss physician Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) described his life as “a story of the self realization of the unconscious.”
Integrating his life long spiritual attitude with a scientific investigation of dreams and fantasies, Jung came to better understand himself and thereby understand the people who came to him for help.
For Jung the process he called individuation, the growth toward psychic wholeness, carried the meaning of life and was the creative activity of God.
His discoveries and therapeutic methods include personality typology, archetypes, the shadow, anima and animus, active imagination and much more.
