Carl G. Jung, depth psychologist, was known quite simply to his friends as “the Shaman”. To Jung we owe a vast debt for his exploration of consciousness, including his own early bouts with what appears to have been borderline psychosis. He discovered, from Eastern philosophy, the Mandala, and used it extensively in his own seal-healing journeys.
Above all, Jung discovered the extraordinary role of the Mandala, in containing the Psyche within safe boundaries which made its creative life possible, and which also facilitated healing processes – within his own shamanic journey and in therapeutic sessions with his patients.
Here, I explore further the Mandala as a sacred vessel within which we gather our experiences here on Earth and then move them towards a Center – all this orchestrated by the Higher Self. As we gather in experience, we grow, learn, and transform in ever-higher stages of spiritual evolution.
