Description

It was the genius of C.G. Jung to discover in the “holy technique” of alchemy a parallel to the psychological individuation process. This book, by Jun’s long-time friend and coworker, completely demystifies the subject.

Designed as an introduction to Jung’s more detailed studies and profusely illustrated, here is a lucid and practical account of what the alchemists were really looking for- emotional balance and wholeness.

Once again, Marie-Louise von Franz demonstrates her remarkable gift for translating esoteric symbolic material into everyday experience. For the image and motifs that so occupied the alchemists were of an archetypal nature, and as such they constantly turn up in modern dreams and drawings.

This is an important book, invaluable for an understanding of dreams and indispensable for anyone interested in relationships and communication between the sexes.
