The great American novel Moby-Dick is a psychological document which, like a dream, needs interpretation and elaboration of its images for its meaning to emerge fully.

In Aion Jung took the archetype of the God-image (the Self) as his subject and demonstrated how it has revealed itself progressively in the course of the Christian aeon. Like its companion volume, The Mysterium Lectures (title 66), this is an invaluable resource for understanding symbolic images.

ISBN 1-894574-09-5. 22 illustrations. Index. Sewn. 160 pp. 2004. $25.00

The Biblical Psalms are the great treasury of Judeo-Christian spirituality. Yahweh dwells within them. Psychologically, this means that the living presence of the Self animates the Psalms, which therefore have the power to constellate the archetype of the God-image in those individuals who are receptive to their influence. Even many self-professed irreligious people have been astonished to discover that certain Psalms were the only texts that spoke to their condition during a period of grave psychic upheaval.

Today, traditional Judeo-Christianity is at a crucial turning point. But the poetry of the Psalms still rewards the effort to understand and relate their message to individual, contemporary, psychological experience. Originally a lecture series, The Sacred Psyche resonates with Dr. Edinger’s heartfelt, deeply honest responses to these powerful texts.
