Anomalous Experiences from the Perspective of C. G. Jung's Complex Psychology

Anahy Fonseca (AJB), Lionel Corbett (CGJIC), Walter Boechat (AJB) & Joel Giglio (CGJIC)

This paper will describe a range of ways in which the objective psyche may manifest itself in the form of numinous experiences. These include numinous dreams, visionary experiences in the waking state, through the body, and through the natural world. Although these kinds of experiences are regarded as anomalous by mainstream psychology and psychiatry, we see them as eruptions of the objective psyche into personal levels of consciousness.

Dr. Lionel Corbett trained in medicine and psychiatry in England and as a Jungian Analyst at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago. He is a professor of depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute, in Santa Barbara, California. He is the author of six books: Psyche and the sacred: The religious function of the psyche; The sacred cauldron: Psychotherapy as a spiritual practice; The soul in anguish: Psychotherapeutic approaches to suffering; Understanding Evil: A guide for psychotherapists, and The God-image: From antiquity to Jung. He is the co-editor of four volumes of collected papers: Psyche's Stories; Depth psychology, meditations in the field; Psychology at the threshold; and Jung and aging.
