EMBODYING YOUR SOUL   A Body of Art

Living your animal by embodying your soul in your body and a body of art answers the lament of the dead, daemons, and Christ. It also returns the iconic time in the garden of Eden where Adam and Eve lived in harmony with nature within and without surrounded by what Jung called their brother animals. In The Red Book Jung (2009) said: “The story of paradise repeats itself, and hence the serpent winds its way up the tree because Adam should be led into temptation” (p. 567).

 

Having had their eyes opened upon eating from the forbidden tree of knowledge, Adam and Eve knew the difference between good and evil, becoming as the gods—and they were expelled from the harmonious nature of Eden.  They were also expelled from aspects of their own animal nature. This section explores the myth behind the archetypal fall and Jung’s art-based methodology to learn to reclaim our animality and soul. 

"He who never lives his animal must treat his brother like an animal. Abase yourself and live your animal so that you will be able to treat your brother correctly." C. G. Jung

"The animal does not rebel against its own kind. Consider animals: how just they are, how well behaved, how they keep to the time-honored, how loyal they are to the land that bears them, how they hold to their accustomed routes, how they care for their young, how they go together to pasture, and how they draw one another to the spring." C. G. Jung
