David Tacey Series Talk 1: Individuation as a Homecoming to Self
Jung Society Melbourne Podcast
Today’s talk Individuation as a Homecoming to Self is the first part in a series entitled Jung’s Depth Psychology: Developing a Relationship with Mystery given by David Tacey to the Jung Society of Melbourne. In this talk, David explores key Jungian concepts such as the Ego, Self, archetypes and the unconscious all toward understanding the process of individuation. David eloquently describes our psychological maturation: from an original experience undifferentiated from the unconscious through to a necessary struggle with the world as we develop our Ego, and finally to the task of coming into relationship with the wisdom of human experience across millennia, that is, the world of archetypes and the Unconscious.
