Creation Myths
By

Rating
Creation myths are the deepest and most important of all myths because they are concerned with both the basic patterns of existence and the ultimate meaning of life. In this book, an eminent Jungian analyst examines the recurring motifs that appear in creation myths from around the world and shows what they teach us about the mysteries of creativity, the cycles of renewal in human life, and the birth of consciousness in the individual psyche. Among the topics discussed are- amp;#160; * Why the creative process is often accompanied by anxiety, depression, loneliness, and fear of the unknown. amp;#160; * The meaning of creation motifs such as the egg, the seed, the primordial being, the creative fire, the separation of heaven and earth, and the four stages of creation. amp;#160; * Creation symbolism in the alchemical opus of medieval tradition. amp;#160; * How creation-myth motifs appear in the dreams of people who are on the verge of a leap forward in consciousness.

Reviews

"This is a book all should read. In doing so, one will expand the mind to different levels of thought and in relationship to our contemporary life in such an interesting and scholarly fashion."-- Spiritual Frontiers "[Von Franz] ranges authoritatively over the myths of many cultures and succeeds in explaining widespread archetypal images that inform the collective unconscious and contribute to our ability to create as individual human beings."-- Parabola
