The process of individuation described by Carl Jung’s work is personalized in this love story–a great love story–the King and Queen–lovers meeting, testing each other, knowing each other, connecting with each other, and parting. The story of Solomon and Sheba can be understood on many levels. It is a love story, but it is also the splendid account of the heart’s journey toward individuation and inner marriage; it is a coniunctio of the masculine and feminine principles that exist in every human psyche–male and female. The end of a journey results in a new birth–and the transformation is unmistakably a story of mystical love–and the love of God.
Koltuv is a storyteller, and she retells the story of Solomon and Sheba so we can all share in the dreams and images that ancient stories (or myths) hold for each of us. Solomon and Sheba symbolize a unification of opposites–Sun, Moon, dark, light, man, woman, King, Queen, consciousness and unconsciousness. Koltuv promises that the transformation to mature man and woman is worth it.
