Archetypes, Symbols, and the Spiritual Quest
This presentation outlines the important role of what Carl Jung described as "archetypes" in terms of promoting our spiritual development and growth. As a means of shedding further light upon the nature and purpose of the archetypes, they are considered within the context of classical esoteric teachings. The importance of the symbolism of myth, legend, dreams, and meditation as representations of archetypal energies is emphasised as a means of drawing us closer to the purpose and intent of what Jung referred to as the "Self."
