The Man Behind the Curtain

Who is "that man behind the curtain" at Unus Mundus?

Since the "Unus Mundus" section of The Zodiac Master has over the years remained a somewhat popular destination for folks interesting in learning more regarding some of the bare bone basics about Dr. Carl G. Jung, Depth Psychology, Archetypes & Symbols, Healing of Soul, Dreams, etc. - I figured I better let you know who I am... or better yet... who I am not...

I'll start out by sharing with you that I'm not a Jungian analyst and I have absolutely no formal training in Jungian analysis...

When it comes to Jungian and/or Archetypal Psychology, I'm simply a self-educated "layperson" that's been voraciously consuming the writings of Dr. Carl G Jung and other Jungian and Archetypal writers for the past 30 years or so.

 

Here are the two bookcases in my study devoted exclusively to Jung's writings along with other Jungian authors and/or directly related archetypal resources. (Simply attempting to demonstrate here that I have managed to put a little thought into it over the years.)

 

I have earned degrees in the disciplines of theology and jurisprudence, and have earned 50+ hours in undergraduate and graduate psychology credits. And, over the years, I have been fortunate enough to attend and/or hear lectures, seminars, and workshops presented by leading Jungian analysts and/or writers.

However - all said and done - I'm just an old guy that (while on his own personal journey) got interested in the writings of Dr Carl G Jung.

Strange but true, it was my studies of Jung's writings that eventually led to my current interest and expertise in the subject of Western Tropical Astrology.

In 1996, when starting up my archetypal astrology site - The Zodiac Master - I noticed there was an absolute dearth of basic information about Carl G Jung and Jungian Depth Psychology.

So I created a small, mostly separate, section of my site devoted to Jung and Jungian Psychology.

The great news is that nowadays there's, of course, an endless supply of information out there. Nowadays Jungian type folk (with actual credentials) are increasingly showing up with excellent informative sites, blogs, and such. However, I like to think that my little section on Jung and Jungian concepts still plays a valuable niche role for some people.

As clearly stated on the opening page of Unus Mundus: "The scattered information and ideas shared on these few pages are meant to be little more than a very small, but delicious taste of Jung's ideas... and it is certainly not meant to be a scholarly treatise and/or final word on any of the concepts briefly shared."

 

Sincerely,
