Rescooped by Belkacem Nabout from Carl Jung Depth Psychology

Anima Mundi, cities, soul of the world, James Hillman.

Contemporary social science applied to a secure, balanced human relationship with our earthly environment through an emergent Unifying Science, change to the collective unconscious and systemic holism.


If psychology is by definition work with the soul. And if nature and culture have soul, then psychology must concern itself with this larger sphere.
Hillman argues strongly against reducing soul to personal subjectivity, naming personalism as one of the burdens of the modern era.


Psychology assumes that only humans are persons, and therefore we are given the impossible responsibility of carrying the full weight of soul. We tend to interpret everything in terms of personal relationships.

A refreshing look at  meaning of gravity and materialism. The qualities of Saturn that help us to steer through limitation and obstacles. When the road narrows, the path reveals itself as the only one. This is of evident in our process of aging, revealing Saturn's profound role as teacher. As we shed what is uneccessary in our lives, we discover the true gold on the other side of Saturn.
