About The Book
Jung's Global Vision: Western Psyche Eastern Mind, With References to Sri Aurobindo, Integral Yoga, The Mother
Sri Aurobindo and the Mother from India were contemporaries of Carl Gustav Jung. Their Integral Yoga can be characterized as based on the former's observation that All Life is Yoga, just as Jung's individuation process is founded on the fact that Everything Living Dreams of Individuation. In each case, the path involves a specific concentration of a natural phenomenon, which speeds up the process. This firm establishment in nature is a significant factor in distinguishing their spirituality and psychology and from other disciplines and methods. Both ways involve the incarnation of the Divine through individuals that leads to far-reaching transformation of both the individual and culture. In Jung's Global Vision: Western Psyche Eastern Mind, Dr. Johnston outlines the striking similarities as well as differences between the path of individuation as outlined and lived by C.G. Jung, and the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
