“Far away, across the fields The tolling of the iron bell Calls the faithful to their knees To hear the softly spoken magic spell” - Pink Floyd: “Breathe (Reprise),” Dark Side of the Moon Christianity has an uneasy relationship with magic, to greater or lesser degrees among its branches. Mormons are some of the wariest of all, which is ironic when you consider the origin of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The regions of North America that nurtured this faith have also hosted folk magic practices for hundreds of years. Since the rise of various new age movements, notably Wicca and Neopaganism, modern aspirants to magic have been attracted to these homegrown systems.…

“We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” - T.S.

Carl Jung’s experiences with the unconscious in 1913-1914 can be, and have been, called by many names, which could include “magic.” But despite their strangeness and power, Jung chose to engage them from the standpoint of his profession as a psychologist. He did not to present them as prophetic revelations for the foundation of a new religion, nor did he declare himself a magician (which is just as well, since he avoided the sad fate of his contemporary Aleister Crowley). Still, his experiences in “the Depths” did include an earnest pursuit of magical knowledge and power, which he recorded in a fascinating chapter of The Red Book entitled “The Magician.” In Lament of the Dead: Psychology…

Facing Shadow: Jungian Thought and the Japanes...

umibozu-1

Several weeks back while perusing a favorite internet site as I sipped my morning brew I happened upon an allegory for the work day ahead, a day of therapy sessions likely to be filled with emotional monsters of all kinds.  The tale was of the Umibōzu, the Japanese Sea Monk, figured in an Edo period woodblock print with a short caption depicting the moment when a fisherman is confronted by the sea monster’s giant black dome, ogling eyes, and interrogating voice: “This ukiyo-e woodblock print, by the late Edo period artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861), illustrates a story involving the “Sea Monk” or Umibōzu, a spirit in Japanese folklore. The ocean dwelling spirit — so called because…
