dr-carl-jungCarl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist who lived from 1875 to 1961. A student of Freud, Jung later became the founder of his own school known as analytical, or depth psychology, the science of mapping out the inner workings of the psyche, or soul.

Key concepts of analytical psychology include the collective unconscious, archetypes, animus/anima, projection, individuation, the shadow, and synchronicity.

Jung has been called the psychologist of the twenty-first century because of the startling relevance of his work to people living today. Jungian analyst Eugene Pascal explains, “Jungian psychology is recognized by a growing audience as the universal and easy way to clearly understand not only human psychology but also many other subjects including the Bible, fairy tales, Navaho sand paintings, tarot cards, Oriental religions, shamanism, alchemy, Para psychological studies, world literature, stages of life, social and cultural phenomena.”

"The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed. It is just these intense conflicts and their conflagration which are needed to produce valuable and lasting results."
--Carl Gustav Jung
