  • Libido
    • A flow of psychic energy that contains our basic drives
      • Not just sexual!
      • The personality depends on the libido
  • Jung
    • Conscious & Unconscious Mind
      • Personal Unconscious
      • Collective Unconscious
        • Common to all of us
    • The Archetypes
      • Structures in our psyche that generate uniform images
        • Produced when combined with knowledge gained from experience
      • Include: Persona, the Shadow, Animus & Anima
      • The God Archetype: each of us is born with the tendency to generate religious images
      • Images prouced by the archetypes are:
        • NUMINOUS: awe inspiring
        • INEFFABLE: produced by the subconscious - so we can never fully understand
          • Therefore, they are religious experiences!
      • Individuation is a process that allows us to achieve balance...
        • ...between the conscious & unconscios
        • ...between the archetypes
        • It is governed by the SELF archetype
        • The SELF produces balancing images such as mandala
          • As well as images of GOD... Therefore, the images produced by the God archetype are the same as those produced by the Self archetype
        • If religion is rejected, you cannot individuate successfully & neurosis is more likely
    • Libido
      • A flow of psychic energy that contains our basic drives
        • Not just sexual!
        • The personality depends on the libido
    • All of us are born with the tendency to conceive similar images
      • These images may be revealed in dreams
