Lecture by John Todd  

Jung was fond of Paracelsus’ term the Lumen Naturae which means “light of nature”. This light or wisdom is revealed to us via dreams and other manifestations of the unconscious. This lecture will focus on the ego’s relationship to Nature, the unconscious, and images that reflect this relationship such as plants and animals in dreams.  The focus will be on the ego’s relationship with the unconscious, a foundational concept in Jungian theory.
