Individuation is the journey towards becoming a full individual; it is the quest to find the 'God within' and the symbol of the 'Self'

  • In the widest sense, it is a religious quest
  • Through religious images the personality achieves its goal of integration as religious images are simply images of the deeper self

Jung argued that God is a deeper 'inner' reality rather than an external object or person

  • God is an expression of the collective unconscious
  • A 'religious experience' with God is really an encounter
