The Golden Highway
Jung was the founder of the idea of a collective unconscious. The collective unconscious is a group-mind that we all share; something we are born with that contains humanity’s shared concepts, called archetypes. Archetypes are things like having parents, finding a partner, having children and confronting death. Jung was also interested in the way we use myths to tell stories about these archetypes with a shared meaning.
What we can gain insight about, what shifts from our unconscious to our conscious, can only serve us well. It gives us the opportunity to notice thoughts and feelings, make links and, consequently, make changes in our behaviours. Hopefully leading us towards a more authentic life.
