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.

If you are seeking to introduce your child to Jungian principles, while understanding his or her development through this lens, explore three…

Interview with Dennis Slattery: Exploring Your...

Amanda Butler

While much is said about the soul’s wisdom and capacity for creativity, it is important to remember that “archetypes always have a shadow,” Dennis Slattery said. As a teacher and a mythologist, he’s seen how vital it is to be aware that the soul also has the capacity for foolishness and destruction--that “the soul in its creative capacities can wreak untold horrors” through violence, war, and addiction. “Creativity is not always for the good,” he said. However, once we are aware that this shadow side exists, we may begin to learn from it and develop greater awareness. A way of going about this creatively is to explore one’s own personal myth, which is something Slattery has…
