The Gift of Neurosis

This is a much needed point of view in our success obsessed, performative, impression managing culture.

I am struck by the overlaps between Jung’s thought on the journey into the psychological underworld and the writings of the great mystics on the journey into the desert or the Dark Night of the Soul.

…”depression is not necessarily pathological – it often foreshadows a renewal of the personality or a burst of creativity…”

This superb 2 part talk by Jungian analyst Sharon Martin is well worth a listen if you have the time and the inclination.

Go on, spend some time with Saturn. You owe it to yourself and if you persist and listen to Part 2 that will make sense.
