Into The Dark Woods:
Individuation is the possibility by which the individual can attain the full development and completion of his incomparable uniqueness. Our society devotes much preparation of its youth for the first half of life. The clear expectations are to create deep roots in career and in relationships. This has allowed our world to develop great civilizations, and to coexist in some form of order that works for the benefit of the tribe, the group, the nation. However, our society seems rather clueless regarding the second half of life.
As Jung has said:"What youth found and must find outside, the man of life's afternoon must find within himself."
By deepening our connection to the unconscious we will find that we have a great inner friend who is there to guide us through every step of the unknown journey. The answers we seek are all within us, there to lead us on our path of individuation into the deepest recesses of ourselves and the wholeness of life.
