The Archetypal Self: Intimacy and Transcendence
September 24, 1988 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT
While the ego is the center of consciousness, the actual center of the entire psyche is the Archetypal Self, the Central Archetype of Order. The Self is perhaps Jung’s most central, yet most mysterious concept. This seminar will examine the meaning of the Archetypal Self using both mythological and clinical examples.
Participants can acquire a deepened understanding of the Self, that mysterious archetype that is on the “near side” of all of our experience and yet can appear so far away as to assume the imagery of God.
