He goes into primarily the Mother, Father, and Child archetypes with plenty to say on the Anima/Animus, Trickster, and Shadow archetypes and how each archetype has a anima/animus or yin/yang aspect of it's own. There is the wise old man mentor and there is the grumpy old man jerk all contained in the Old Man archetype. The Anima could be the perfect girl of your dreams or the nagging old harpy. The evidence for their existence is all around if you just know where and how to look. After reading this I saw "The Dark Tower" movie written by Stephen King and discovered archetypes and archetypal images everywhere. Jung even surprises by demonstrating how the parable of the unjust steward is a call from Jesus for us to confront, meet, and integrate our own shadow! It is about God saying it's okay to be dishonest with Him if you're aim is to reconcile with those around you! This I did not expect and yet it is truly compelling. Makes me want to read Part II: Aion. That's next.
Truly one of those books that can change your life. You will begin to see things differently after reading this magnificent masterpiece.
The book is exactly what I needed.
I spent a great deal of time recording my dreams and fantasies just for fun and the first thing I ever painted as an adult was a Mandalay without realising it. If you are like me this book will blow you away.
It's not an easy read but it does flow. Can't wait to start Aion!

But nonetheless I wouldn’t recommend this book for anyone who isn’t familiar with psychological and philosophical concepts. It can sound like gibberish to those unfamiliar with previous works from individuals like Freud etc..
But to all those who read philosophical and psychological texts. I would say this is a must have.
