“Psyche Revived by the Kiss of Eros”

April 4, 2017


Archetypal Western mythic image of symbolic inner opposite partners of Psyche / Eros that reflect and embody a paradoxically informing intrapsychic process of integrating the archetypal shadow of “anima projections” in a whole man and “animus projections” in a whole woman.

“One does not become enlightened by imaging things of light, but my making the darkness conscious.” C.G. Jung

The relationship between “Word” and projected image of “wholeness” paradoxically informs the language of our gender and culture every moment of every day. (pls)

Following are a few archetypally patterned soulfully related, co-creative and culturally gendered distinct creation mythos storied links that imaginally document symbolic marriage of supreme opposites, dissolution, and rebirth:

“Idol” – from Rodin’s “The Kiss” ;  The story behind it ; Images of the sculpting

“The Kiss” from Philip Glass
