The God image in Jung’s Psychology
Traditional descriptions of God in the world’s theistic traditions are no longer satisfying for many people. Jung’s discovery of the transpersonal Self, an innate God-image or divine essence within the psyche, offers a practical and powerful alternative that avoids many of the problems associated with anthropomorphic, patriarchal God-images. Using examples from people’s experience, this talk will describe a variety of ways in which the Self manifests itself in dreams, visions, and synchronicities. We will also discuss Jung’s idea that the Self has a dark side that is responsible for suffering and evil, and the ways in which this contrasts with the Christian God-image.
