Living in the Borderlands --Ecotherapy and Sensitivity to Nature and Earth

Living in the Borderlands --Ecotherapy and Sensitivity to Nature and Earth | The Eclectic Researcher | Scoop.it

Though his is not the only one to say so, of course, according to  Jungian analyst Jerome Bernstein (2007) in his revolutionary book Living in the Borderlands: The Evolution of Consciousness and the Challenge of Healing Trauma, humankind has experienced a massive split from our sacred roots in nature.

 

As a result our egos have become overspecialized and lopsided, severing our ability to connect with the dimension of the sacred forces which nature embodies. Bernstein refers to the need for a massive compensatory shift in evolution that will help us regain balance and wholeness, action that will pull us “back from the brink of self-extinction” (p. 13). Bernstein’s hypothesis is firmly based on believing that everything that exists, both animate and inanimate “has within it a spirit dimension and communicates in that dimension to those who can listen” (p. 8).

Eros is coursing through the forest. The forest is mewing with its jaguar life. Life is spiralling into poetry. I am in the other world, I thought, at once in the actual forest and in the forests of the mind where the visible world is not denied but augmented.

Everything depends on our internal consciousness and external awareness. The KEY is translating this knowledge into practical everyday actions that will enliven and enrich our body, mind and spirit. For me, it starts and ends with an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE!

Ensoulment and Synchronicity: Concepts from Cosmos and Psyche by Richard Tarnas

Ensoulment and Synchronicity: Concepts from Cosmos and Psyche by Richard Tarnas | The Eclectic Researcher | Scoop.it

In his 2006 book Cosmos and Psyche: Intimations of a New World View, Rick Tarnas suggests that the western mind has catapulted us away from a fundamental cosmos where everything was ensouled, alive, and animated by meaning and archetype.

 

Our modern mindset is, instead, to attempt to control and manipulate our environment, making us the active subject in any interaction, and the things we see around us the passive object. Tarnas suggests “disenchantment” refers to the way the world is objectified, thereby denying subjectivity.
