About This Book

In Journeying with Your Archetypes, Daniel Cantor Yalowitz, Ed.D. takes readers on a personal tour: a narrated and curated adventure and journey into the land of C.G. Jung’s psychology, focusing on his conception of archetypes. Intended for those unfamiliar with Jungian terminology and psychology, the lucid writing in this book invites beginners as well as those with experience with Jung to look deeply into the meaning beyond one’s daily activities in expanding one’s understanding of themselves and the world. The book engages readers through its wit and integration of films, literature, history, the arts, and story to illuminate and clarify the book’s major points and themes.

Advance Praise for Journeying with Your Archetypes

Through the time-honored image of a journey, Daniel Yalowitz invites readers to a homecoming. As a guide, he is seasoned. As a thinker, he is both practical and visionary. But it is as a wise friend that Daniel comes across most clearly, reflecting a lifetime of experience. His work with archetypes is timely and thoughtful, inviting readers to discover the possibilities of relating the mythic to the everyday. Michelle LeBron, J.D., Professor of Dispute Resolution, Peter A. Allard School of Law, University of British Columbia, Canada This is a wise, accessible, and beautifully written overview of the archetypal basis of Jungian psychology. I especially appreciate the embrace of paradox, the unknown, and questions as openings to it all. As someone who has known Daniel Cantor Yalowitz for many years as a gifted professor of human development, education, and psychology, I did not know this dimension of his life, which is so close to my own. I was delighted to read Journeying with your Archetypes and celebrate its contributions to our understanding of Psyche and the creative imagination.
