From the Back Cover
Come along on an engaging inner journey to explore the psychological insights and spiritual wisdom of Carl Gustav Jung, perhaps the most influential psychologist of the twentieth century. As you will discover, although rooted in the wisdom of the past, Jung was a very modern visionary. Jung's ideas shape the way we think about ourselves and the ways we relate to each other. He gives us concepts we use everyday to describe personality, such as extrovert and introvert, anima and animus, the shadow and the higher self. He teaches us to think of our psychological development as a journey of individuation. His writings unlock the secrets of the collective unconscious, the archetypes, and the meaning of synchronicity or coincidence. This beautifully illustrated book introduces Jung's life and ideas in a vivid and entertaining fashion. Each chapter features exercises that help us apply Jung's ideas to our own lives and guide us on our own transformational journey toward psychological and spiritual wholeness.
