After shadow work, you have the ability to access deeper aspects of your true nature or, as Carl Jung called it, the “Collective Unconscious.” The collective unconscious is a powerful source of creativity, innovation and intuition. In this episode, we explore what the collective unconscious is, how to access it and what is possible in partnership with your deeper self.  We discuss: 

  • The Collective Unconscious as Ancestral Memory 
  • Why you need to do shadow work first before you enter the collective unconscious
  • Understanding the Anima (Mother) and Animus (Father) and how they appear as the world and spirit 
  • How symbols are used for transformation 
  • Ways to access the unconscious through meditation, introspection, dreams and active imagination
  • In order to change the world, we need to change our relationship with ourselves first

Jung is one of the few, maybe the only one, that really tackles this question of where creativity comes from. How is it that we’re able to create all this technology, all this art, architecture, cars, spaceships, all this stuff that we create as human beings? His answer is incredibly profound and controversial. We’ll talk about that.
