PODCAST: The first 90 minutes of this series is available for free through the Jungianthology Podcast.
Topics: Myth and Fairy Tale, the Self.
Mythology of the Great Self Within
World mythological traditions present many images of a Great Self that dwells within each human individual. This course examines a number of these images from mythological and spiritual traditions and then turns to a discussion of the psychological basis for this phenomenon. Special attention is given to the implications for our experience of both pathological grandiosity and creative visioning.
