Jung Resources for Pagans

I have just created a new menu on the side of my blog which contains links to Jung resources.  Check it out.  Most of these are hard-to-find writings by Jung himself.  Jung’s writings, I have come to discover, are very hard to find on the Internet.

Water and Stone: libations and altars

Recently, I discovered a great blog at Witches and Pagans called Baring the Aegis: Hellenismos by Elani Temperance on Greek reconstructionist spirituality.  Her full blog can be found here.  Two posts in particular caught my attention, both on the practice of libations: “Sponde and khoe; the practice of liquid sacrifices” and “Khernips and libations; two [Read More...]

Recently Teo Bishop wrote a wonderful post about his experience of doing ritual in nature.  (Sometimes I think I should rename this blog “What I think about awesome things Teo Bishop has said”.)  Anyway, in his post, Teo writes that when he performs a certain ritual indoors in the city, he lifts his hands toward [Read More...]
