INDIVIDUATION   Creating Yourself

A look at how Jung’s art-based methodology is an imaginal approach to individuation. Quoting the apocryphal saying of Jesus, Jung (1923) said that ‘”Where there are two I am there, and where on is alone I am there also. Break the rock, cleave the wood, I am there’” (p. 22), expressing a sense of individuation that was found in both isolation and connection, human and nonhuman nature.

 

This sense of communion was at the heart of Jung’s art-based process which he said reoriented the individual to the soul and through the soul to community. Speaking of the paradox of individuation, Jung say that “Collective relationships must be based on individual relationships, for an individual cannot exist  without relatedness, for we are each cells in an organism. When we make individual relationships we lay the foundations for an invisible church” (p. 24). This is the foundation of TRB as a church and new religion.

 “The unconscious wants to flow into consciousness in order to reach the light, but at the same time it continually thwarts itself, because it would rather remain unconscious. That is to say, God wants to become man, but not quite." C. G. Jung
