The Wise Old Man: Healing Through Inner Images - Pieter Middelkoop

Shambhala, 1989, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. A little rubbed at the edges of the wraps, again at head of spine. Text bright and tight.

First in this edition. From the introduction: “You are about to enter a therapy of the imagination through tales of interaction between our conscious selves and the archaic imagination, the birthplace of all images. Psychotherapist Pieter Middelkoop follows closely the path described by Jung, convinced that there is an unconscious core of Self, which, like a distant and forever invisible command force in interior space, steers consciousness through life. What was from ancient times called the guiding spirit is often envisioned and interiorly seen as a Wise Old Man, an archaic character of collective soul that lives buried deeply in everyone. The contact we have to this archetypal undercurrent — this inner therapist, as Middelkoop calls it — is through the imagination.
