“Inner awakening and heroic path” (Biarritz, France)

Cultural Activities

Laura Winckler, co-founder of New Acropolis France, spoke to an audience of more than 200 people, on the path of individuation, the process of inner awakening associated with what CG Jung calls the heroic path. A journey from the more peripheral part of ourselves, the ‘person’ (zone encompassing our experiences, contradictions, our opinions and claims) towards our true selves (the heart-center).

To accomplish this, heroes must awaken weapons such as courage and humility to walk into the whirlwind of their unconscious. Laura Winckler, also reminded participants that CG Jung inspired the great American mythologist Joseph Campbell, who himself inspired George Lucas on the path of individuation that Jung identifies with three phases: preparation, the journey and the return.
