“Through the study of these collective transformation processes and through understanding of alchemical symbolism I arrived at the central concept of my psychology: the process of individuation”
Volume 7, “Memories, Dreams, Reflections” by C.G. Jung
Explanation: C.G. Jung spent all his life learning the processes of development and transformation of our psyche (individuation). Individuation can be defined as the achievement of self-actualization through a process of integrating the conscious and the unconscious.
Connection: The image of the butterfly, which is born a caterpillar, turns into a cocoon, and later blossoms into a winged insect, has always fascinated humankind. This process was seen as a reflection of our own spiritual transformation.
