Individuation is the process of living into an aspect of the innate potential of one’s personality. If we are true to our individuation, the sense of being related to something greater in the psyche (Self) emerges. While we cannot live all the potentials we are born with, and we must adapt to a demanding world, Jung’s concept of individuation helps us to bear this process of becoming who we are most “meant to be” as consciously as possible. This requires continuous differentiation of the inner and outer influences that want us to simply drift in the direction of the current. Confronting these cultural, collective, and internalized schemas requires bearing guilt and holding the “tension of the opposites”. We will explore the role of the shadow, the animus/anima, the Self, dreams, and active imagination in the process of individuation, and explore some archetypal material that illuminates this process.
