Anima & Animus: Exploring the Internal and External Other 

This seminar explores Jung’s brave and open process of discovering the value of the “other” within the psyche as he describes it in the red book. For Jung the “other” was the soul. He fought for a relationship with his soul because he knew that was what was essential to balance the dangerously one-sided rational bias of his own personality and the culture in which he lived. In his lexicon he called the emissary of the soul the anima. This groundbreaking work helped him develop a theory that valued wholeness. The presenters relate Jung’s explorations in the Red book to his later theory of the anima and animus, the feminine principle operating within men and the masculine principal operating within women. They follow the relevance of his theory to our post modern and less essentialist times.
