Integrating the Child and the Old Man – a paper by Jules Evans

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:46 am by aleksan

A great paper! As a boarding school survivor, a psychiatrist, and now a Bard in the Druid tradition it all makes good sense. I had a Jungian Training Analysis many years ago since when creativity and art, as well as Buddhist and Stoic philosophy has been valuable and inspirational to me. I find that I can integrate and balance the Puer and Senex through the practice of Druidry, with its spontaneity, no fixed belief system and strong emphasis on living what Jung called the Symbolic Life in the here and now.
