Carl Gustav Jung

Hello again, folks.

I just started my classes in Pastoral Counseling, and enjoyed my first class a couple of nights ago.  We talked about the integration of the analytic psychology work of Carl Jung (a very famous Swiss psychiatrist who used to be Freud’s protege) with spirituality.

Essentially, Jung talked about health being the result of a radical self-acceptance of parts of oneself that one shuts away because they are uncomfortable.  This part is called the Shadow.

Here are a couple of links to Youtube videos which are an incomplete selection from a documentary about Jung and his work, which I have added for your enjoyment.
