Continuing in this  series about the personality, we explore the concept of trauma in a person’s history and how that influences the personality. In this episode, we will discuss: 

  • How to rethink your concept of how deep the “trauma” imprint is in the psyche from a Jungian perspective;
  • How trauma is not a life-sentence for woundedness;
  • How to overcome personal trauma without feeling broken or damaged through a spiritual understanding of the experience rather than “healing the ego;”
  • How to better understand the healing process.
