Alchemy is the ancient art of transmuting base metals into gold. The psychological gold of all true alchemists is realisation of the Self. Similarly a process of self-discovery or self-realisation is the means by which all human psyches achieve full integration, according to Jung, the renowned psychologist. In order to reach this goal people follow what is known as the process of individuation – an alchemical process of transformation into a harmoniously integrated Self.
In this course you will learn about the Persona, the Shadow, the Animus and the Self – the Jungian psychological archetypes – and you will discover how these are expressed in alchemical texts, dreams, myths and stories from other times and cultures.
