Although alchemy is popularly regarded as the science that sought to transmute base physical matter many of the medieval alchemists were interested in developing a discipline that would lead to the psychological and spiritual transformation of the individual C G Jung discovered in his study of alchemical texts a symbolic and imaginal language. This one was a little dense than her other works nevertheless Marie Louise explained Jung with clarity Take this uote for example as a way to express the purpose of individuationWhenever this the individuation process occurs positively it brings about a union of consciousness with the collective unconscious instead of an explosion of consciousness it means an enlargement of consciousness together with a decrease of intensity in the ego complex When this happens the ego retires in favor of the collective unconscious and its center the Self To reach that point where outer and inner reality become one is the goal of individuation p 149She thus make clear that by working towards awareness of self Self and the complexes via dream interpretation and becoming vitally involved in life one is thus initiated into the unitive experience of being one with God

    Was my introduction to jung and alchemy absolutely amazing Writing is concise and easy to follow but she still manages to delve into to the depths of a jungianalchemical idea Her selections of which dialogues of the manuscript to interject into the lecture were perfect Overall extremely focused and relatively short book that encouraged me enough to order her other book on alchemy

    Of all the books I've picked up so far about Jung and alchemy this one has been the most immediately readable The author focuses on a single alchemical treatise and walks you through a Jungian analysis of it in a style that doesn't reuire the reader to be neck deep in psychology studies or alchemical lore to follow
