The Stories of Archetypes
In Jungian psychology, Hermes (up top), is the archetype that mediates between the conscious and unconscious minds and is a key figure in healing (note his scepter) and in alchemical transformation. For the ancient Greeks, Hermes was the god of communication and the messenger of the gods to mortals. In our time, we can view him as sharing archetypal insights with us. Often shown with winged feet, he sped messages along, as modern technology does now. Happily, the authors of the blogs in this section can share wisdom about archetypes with you by writing on keyboards and then hitting send, while the ancient woman (above) must laboriously carve his wisdom in stone [CSP1] .
Recently, I joined Rob Kall on his podcast "The Bottom Up Show".
