I first encountered Jung while studying theology as an undergraduate. No, I am not religious now – an atheist since 1992. Jung was the son of a Swiss pastor and even after following a 19th Century intellectual path, he was unwilling (or unable) to formulate a therapeutic practice long-term which didn’t include spirituality. His weaving of religion and myth was arguably a “secular” one, with religious imagery woven into subconscious archetypes. While Freud’s subconscious mind was things unable to be processed or absorbed by the conscious mind, Jung’s subconscious mind was part of a “collective psyche”, that included spiritual imagery (archetypal images).
Following is a detailed documentary on the life and views of Carl Gustav Jung – Viel Spaß!
