The Gnostic Critique, Past and Present

Ancient Gnostics envisioned and experienced a radical transformation in the consciousness that had been formed by the mythic gods of Greece and early Yawistic tradition during the two thousand years before Jesus. Like the Gnostics, Jung experienced a radical revision of the consciousness that had taken shape in the two millennia since the time of Jesus. Author and analyst Murray Stein discusses how modern depth psychology, based on the perception of deep structures of relatedness united everything that exists, forces us to confront our ego-determined insistence upon dominance and progress.
