Jung’s Analytical Psychology draws heavily from the Eastern Spiritual Traditions. In his Magnum Opus—the Mysterium Coniunctionis, Jung presented his highest synthesis of the Alchemy of the Individuation process. These include Alchemic movement from Unio Naturalis, Unio Mentalis, Unio Spiritualis, and Unio Corporalis to Unus Mundus. This presentation will explore the Eastern perspective on the Individuation process amplifying each of these stages from an Eastern perspective. These will be further explored with Archetypes of the Eastern and Hindu traditions and clinical material. Time permitting, we will engage the archetypes of the Hindu Trinity of Brahma and Sarasvati, the creators, Vishnu and Laxmi- the Preserves of consciousness and Shiva and Shakti—the destroyers of the Shadow making room for creation of New Consciousness. Basics of Kundalini Yoga as the archetype of higher Coniunctio may be explored.

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize the basics of Jung’s theory of Individuation process as depicted in his Mysterium Coniuctionis
  • Discuss the overview of the Eastern templated of the Individuation process
  • Present the Eastern views on the Unio Naturalis—living out of your authentic nature
  • Articulate the Eastern template for the Unio Mentalis—the mapping out of your psyche.
  • Illustrate the working of the Eastern path on Unio Spiritualis—decoding your spiritual purpose.
  • Explain the Eastern perspectives on Unio Corporalis—embodiment of your life and spiritual purpose.
  • Demonstrate the Eastern paradigm of Unus Mundus—being a meaningful part of the collective, using clinical examples.
