The Imaginal, The Body & The Butterfly

Shannon Simonelli

Let's first define the Imaginal: Henry Corbin post dated Carl Jung, and coined the term Imaginal from his work as an interpreter of Islamic thought and poetry. Corbin describes the Imaginal Realm (mundus imaginalis) as holding images, stories, dream figures, embodied imagery and movements that come to us from some dimension beyond our rational intellectual perspective.

Inviting our unique life through the images and movements born from our inner life and the Imaginal Realm.

Jung’s Relationship To Art – It Wa...

Jung Society

Jungian psychology has a strong emphasis on art and how the psyche both develops and responds to it. In the commentary of 'The Secret of the Golden Flower', Carl Jung says “It is as if we did not know, or else continually forgot, that everything of which we are conscious is an image, and that image is psyche”. This fluidity of thought aligns with the importance of accepting a creative outlet. While all forms of art are critical to the development and expression of the psyche, it’s visual art where we most see Jung’s relationship with art.
