Format: Paperback
Steven B. Herrmann,PhD, MFT
Author of "William Everson: The Shaman's Call"

One of clearest works on active imagination that I have read is a book by the French post-Jungian author, Elie G. Humbert, C. G. Jung: The Fundamentals of Theory and Practice. Translated into English by Ronald Jalbert and published by Chiron, in 1988, Hubert says that the process of active imagination as Jung taught it, may be divided up into three German verbs: 1) Geschenlassen (to let happen), 2) Betrachten (to consider, or to impregnate), and 3) Sich auseinandersetzung (to confront oneself with). "These three German verbs geshhenlassen, betrachten, and sich auseinandersetzung," writes Humbert "together define conscious activity in its confrontation with the unconscious" (13). As Humbert tells us "Jung uses the word geshehenlassen ("to let happen") to describe the way in which he deals with whatever comes to mind" (10). Humbert refers to a line in Jung's memoirs when Jung said to himself: "Since I know nothing at all, I shall simply do whatever comes to me" (MDR 173). The process of letting go led to the next stage of the method, the act of looking, which psychologically brings about the activation of the object and the emanation of something moving in one's spiritual eye that evokes the inner manifestation of one's vision. This movement, he called betrachten. Jung defines the German word betrachten in his Visions Seminars in the following manner: "The German betrachten... means `to make pregnant'... So to look at or concentrate on an object conveys to it the quality of pregnancy. And if it is pregnant, it is alive, it produces, it multiples. That is the case with any phantasy image.
