Everyday Applications of Jung's Theories

Dr. Eugene Pascal provides an illuminating book which clarifies many complex principles and concepts of Jung, bringing them into everyday reality. Most impressive are the chapters on on 'individuation', 'the shadow' and 'psychic wholeness'. His explanation of how symbols operate within dreams is quite outstanding. The most enjoyable chapter for me explained how myths and legends are enacted unconsciously within us. The author provides numerous examples of how archetypes, the anima and animus, and "the functions of consciousness", typology, helps us live in the world and resolve conflicts. How we "transform" ourselves is the main thrust of this book ... as Dr. Pascal observes ...in order to let our Light shine forth we must explore the Source of our energy. This is truly a fascinating book worth owning by anyone who is exploring Jung and consequently doing "inner work". The book is all about how we manifest our reality ... a truly magnificent journey!Erika Borsos (erikab93)

An excellent introduction to Jungian Psychology

This book provides the clearest explanations I have seen yet of many of the stickiest concepts in Jungian psychology. The author's background in Jungian therapy and religious studies are blended together skillfully to produce a readable and instructive introduction to this fascinating subject.The chapter on typology, a technique for understanding our inner selves and why we are not true to them, is one of the clearest I have ever read.The concepts of persona, complexes, archetypes, shadow, Anima and Animus, etc., are presented clearly and directly. The author is always careful to ground the information in real-life language and experience, making it meaningful and applicable to the reader.The book concludes with chapters on dream interpretation and active imagination, spurring readers to discover their own psychic process through the use of these powerful techniques.While an introductory book, this work provides much to think about. The author's compassion and sense of humor are evident throughout. It is a worthy addition to the library of those interested in Jungian psychology and personal growth.

A thoughful and intelligent read with life-altering results.

When this book was recommended as the pre-read for a Caroline Myss workshop, I was apprehensive. I thought it might be way beyond my comprehension. To my delight I found the book very readable, highly interesting, provocative in the ideas and sound in application. Have you ever read a book and wished it was a workshop? This is it! Encore, Pascal!

Excellent book for applying Jungian psychology.

Pascal pulls many facets together in this comforting, easy to read, useful book. Myths, archetypes, astrological symbols, metaphysics, and psychology are all adeptly integrated into a useful tool. The author doesn't just talk the talk. He tells readers how to apply Jungian principles in daily life. A top-of-the line psychology book for today's complex, often frustrating lifestyle.

An invaluable way to incorporate Jung into one's daily life.

A practical, accessible book on Jungian psychology for anyone wanting to explore the 'shadow,' the self and dreams. If you aren't afraid to take a realistic look at yourself...if you're ready for a little 'personal growth,' if you want to be whole instead of good, then begin with this book. You won't be disappointed!
