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...

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.

“Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.” - C.G.

In recent months this has been literalized as his health has taken a turn for the worst. He’s now in a nursing care facility, spending his most of his days apparently drifting in and out, only occasionally conscious or coherent, no longer who he was. He graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, then worked for the State of Utah for…

The Entire Self As An Ear: Listening Practice

“Now the ears of my ears are awake and the eye of my eyes are open.” –E.E. Cummings “When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.” – Martin Buber, I and Thou Last night as sleep came over me, on my mind were the many times I’d recently heard from people how incredibly lonely they felt, the frequent lament “no one listens to me, they don’t want to hear it, I’m a burden.” As if these thoughts had been heard by an inner witness, I dreamed all night of various listening experiences. Having been involved with energy medicine and bodywork for a couple of decades, the…
