In this episode, we share Jung’s vast impact on the world with psychology, comparative religion, mythology, eastern spirituality, mysticism, dream interpretation, the depth of the unconscious, personal and collective, personality types, alchemy and more. We explore:

  • The journey of Carl Jung and his individuation process
  • Our personal stories of how Jung’s work came into our life and the impact it has had
  • What the future holds if people would become more conscious, and how society would change from politics to social challenges to personal happiness
