UNCONSCIOUS   Dark of the Depths

In this art-based process we are learning to see in the dark of night and the dark of the depths of the unconscious—to see what has been hidden or repressed. In seeing we bring the unconscious to light through a process of illumination (as in an illuminated manuscript). This process can be seen in the mythic return to the garden of Eden of

 

The Red Book and the names of Lilith and Eve (meaning “of the night” or night monster and evening or “life breath” like the anima or soul respectively). In learning to navigate the dark night of the soul, we learn to see in the inner darkness through visions which Jung said were more important than dreams because they brought the unconscious and conscious together—illuminating the darkness.

“The vision is not something derived or secondary, and it is not a symptom of something else. It is true symbolic expression—that is, the expression of something existent in its own right, but imperfectly known” (Jung, 1933, p. 162).

"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakes." C JUNG
