24. Psychology: The Science of the Soul | My new Zine on Carl Jung, Stanislav Grof, Mysticism, & Astrology
Show Notes

In this episode, I introduce and preview my new publication that re-interprets the global response to the covid epidemic through the lens of Depth Psychology. 

In the zine's first two chapters I outline and overview the core teachings of Carl Jung and Stanislav Grof. Here I focus on their findings that there is  a "transpersonal" dimension to the human psyche. This discussion sets the stage for the zine's third chapter, which looks at the link between Depth Psychology and Astrology. Here I look at the astrological dynamics underlying the global response to Covid. In the zine's final chapter, I discuss the theme of "death-rebirth" and analyze how this current moment in time indicates a death of "scientific materialism" and a rebirth of the philosophy of the sacred.

This month I have a ton of content planned around this zine, where I'll be doing a deep dive on each  of its 4 chapters. You can find digital and print copies (limited in quantity)  at my store - thewisdomtradition.bigcartel.com. Thanks for tuning in! Be back soon, - Alex
