Symbol is one of the ways in which the psyche introduces unconscious material to consciousness. As a very specific form of symbolic expression, Jung described the mandala as “a symbol of totality which pertains and adheres to the realization of the Self.” In this lecture, we will discuss various ways each of us may discover personal meaning in symbolic images.
