“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” - C.G. Jung Carl Jung saw both dreams and art (including paintings and poetry) as expressions of the unconscious. Of dreams he wrote, “The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.” In art, as in dreaming, the unconscious is often activated. In Jung’s essay, “On the Relation of Analytical Psychology to Poetry,” he wrote of certain creative works in which “we are…

What Is Synchronicity?

Synchronistic events provide an immediate religious experience as a direct encounter with the compensatory patterning of events in nature as a whole, both inwardly and outwardly. - C.G. Jung We have plenty of evidence that we live in a universe of random interaction, where things often happen for no apparent reason.

And the worn old tale spills off the same groove in the wax of your past, or the whole matter is deftly skipped over.  Many personal histories are marked by emotional or physical violence, instability, parental indifference, and varieties of cause for shame and self-devaluation. While our responses to trauma differ, there are few adults ambling about…

Loneliness and Solitude: A Jungian View

Amanda Butler

“Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself.” - C.G. Jung Loneliness can be described as “perceived social isolation, or the discrepancy between what you want from your social relationships and your perception of those relationships.” People are often ashamed of feeling lonely, but loneliness is increasingly common: Time Magazine and the Huffington Post recently published articles describing loneliness as a growing public health concern. How then can we address this common, yet painful experience? Loneliness as a messenger Loneliness can be experienced by anyone, even those who are surrounded by other people. Personally, some of my loneliest experiences have involved…
