Jungian Analysis

Dariane Pictet                                                  
It is our task to imprint this temporary, perishable earth into ourselves so deeply, so painfully and passionately, that its essence can rise again, ’invisibly’ inside us. 
                              Rainer Maria Rilke

The individuation process is at the centre of C.G. Jung’s psychology. It describes how we can relate to the possibilities within us that we haven’t given birth to. When we orient ourselves to the source of all potential, we begin to dialogue with a wider perspective which Jung calls the Self. This encompasses the wisdom that we carry in our bones, passed down by our family, our ancestors, our tribe. Individuation is a journey that we undertake knowing that it actually never ends, because we are fluctuating beings engaged moment by moment in the arduous task of conscious existence. As we become attuned to a deeper sense of who we are, we discover what is absolutely essential to us, what we cannot betray without causing deep injury to what we hold most sacred.               

This demands a “fidelity to the law of one’s being”.
