Archetypal Symbols & Inner Work as a Gateway to the Self
Jungian Contemplative Self-Study© has evolved from the multi-dimensional mandala of my own personal work, study, and training in eastern practice from the young age of 14 years, as well as my training of over 20 years with Jungian Analysis, Jung's understanding of the psyche, and the individual journey towards wholeness.
I'm passionate about the evolution of this creative inner work and teaching into what I feel is a rich offering for the individual in a society where the personal inner world is at times lost to the collective and group process, often leaving one's personal exploration of an authentic spiritual life left unmet. These sessions are a personalized branch of what we offer at our Contemplative Center. You can read more about working with me below~
Archetypal symbol and Dream Study is a rich aspect of Jung's legacy that can be explored to find meaning in our own lives. Throughout time, symbols have been a healing and transformative tool for all cultures. Jung's work is noted for bringing forward a greater understanding of symbols, the psyche, and the Unconscious. Jung understood and directly experienced how the Unconscious is always at work attempting to guide us through life. He understood how our collective and personal symbols support the unique development of the individual towards the center of wholeness. Symbols appear in all traditions and are an important aspect of our connection to the healing archetype of the Self, our Deep Essential Nature.
Cary's many years of personal process and training with Jungian Analysis and her exploration and practice in eastern spiritual traditions, where symbols are a vital aspect of inner transformation, have greatly informed her life. This has drawn others to want to share and converse with her in their own process of deepening their relationship with the Self that is our wholeness and centralizing totality. Her view and support are inclusive of all traditions east & west. She is available to explore with you.
The Mandala is an archetypal image of Wholeness
which exists in all cultures in different forms.
It represents the trancendent totality, the Divinity within.
