EVE — The "Life Breath"
Jung’s soul identified with Eve in The Red Book and the artist Christiana Morgan (1997) was an Eve like figure who said of her art-based “vision of what it meant to be a woman conscious of her own self” that, “I must be mother and that nothing will ever stand between me and the forces which are around me—that I will be eternally alone—looking at these naked things [the visions] always unprotected, and then measuring them to the capacity of these several individuals—veiling them and transforming these things that I see to meet the needs of each one—while I see them in the raw. I have the feeling that this may be the real awakening consciousness of woman” (p. xxxiii). In ways this art-based methodology can be seen as a return to Eve and her embodied art-based knowledge.
Of the story of Adam and Eve: "This story yields itself meaning only to a psychological interpretation." C. G. Jung
