Carl Jung on body and psyche

Click on the link to visit the Carl Jung Depth Psychology Facebook page, for this interesting post by Lewis Lafontaine (thanks, Lewis) of a letter by Jung, with thoughts on homeopathy and elements of body and psyche in ailments that may often be viewed as purely physical….Jung of course wrote extensively around the symbolic or metaphorical dimensions of physical illness – the emotional, experiential, spiritual meanings.

As Jung comments:-

‘One can only say that it is advisable to approach every illness from the psychological side as well, because this may be extraordinarily important for the healing process’.
