As told by Katie Sanford at age 98, this interview shares a life time struggle of survival in her journey through the shadow land of the psyche in search of healing the archetypal Mother wound. With the traumatic death of her mother, Katie’s developing personality split apart and, as a lost soul, she was left wandering through the wasteland of deadly conventionality. The neurotic suffering of a meaningless life led Katie to seek Jungian analysis in her early 30s, opening a pathway through the underworld of the psyche to a reconstructive relationship to the archetypal Great Mother, the very foundation of the feminine psyche, and her own authentic individuation process with all its creative challenges. Her formal education was interrupted by early marriage and pregnancy. At age 60 Katie returned to college to earn a BA degree in psychology and became certified as a Jungian analyst. Katie continues to be actively involved with the San Diego Friends of Jung as well as her personal practice and study group.
A 30-year period of Katie’s life time undertaking has been recorded and published in her book The Serpent and the Cross; Healing the Split through Active Imagination. This journey documented by 62 of Katie’s symbolic paintings is reproduced at the end of the interview.
