A Summary of Primary Elements of Depth Psychology
according to WIKIPEDIA:
Depth psychology states that psyche is a process that is partly conscious and partly unconscious and partly semi-conscious. The unconscious contains repressed experiences and other personal-level issues in its upper layers and “transpersonal” (e.g. collective, non-I, archetypal) forces in its depths. The semi-conscious is an aware pattern of personality, including everything from individual vanity to the personality of the workplace.
The psyche spontaneously generates mythico-religious symbolism or themes, and is therefore spiritual or metaphysical, as well as instinctive, in nature.
All minds, all lives, are ultimately embedded in some sort of myth-making in the form of themes or patterns. Mythology is therefore not a series of old explanations for natural events, but rather the richness and wonder of humanity played out in symbolical, thematic, and patterned storytelling.
