Healing the Wounded God: Finding Your Personal Guide to Individuation and Beyond
Through their work with their clients, their own experiences, and studies in myth, mysticism, and alchemy, the authors have traced the emergence of a new spiritual paradigm in which the divine seeks wholeness through and with us. Many of us are having experiences that bring us in contact with a being who seems to exist independently in the realm beyond the psyche, or what the authors term "the psychoid." This being, the ally, challenges and helps us along our way to individuation. The ally represents our divine counterpart and works with us, if we are willing, to help heal the schism between and within the divine and us. The authors show us how to contact and consciously enter into a relationship with the ally through our dreams and by employing what C. G. Jung termed "active imagination." When we work with the ally to transform ourselves, the divine transforms as well, all three elements co-creating a whole being. The authors explore the ally's parallels in mystical traditions such as Sufism and alchemy, and how the ally differs from angelic beings. They also present an exciting new view of various creation myths, revealing that salvation exists beyond the "vault of heaven" for God and human alike.
