the inner female and male energies of the psyche
What is the Anima and Animus?
Carl Gustav Jung coined the terms “Anima and Animus” in 1921. To date much has been written and discussed about these to concepts. Those interested in Jungian psychology know that integrating the Anima and Animus (the syzygy) is an essential aspect of the Jungian individuation journey. But what does this actually mean? Anima and Animus as purely theoretical concepts are difficult to grasp and understand. Our approach at Azin Academy is the actual integration and application of the Jungian theory for the ongoing individuation journey. A phenomenological and experiential approach is ultimately the only way to not only grasp but integrate Jungian theory. Without that it will remain forever at arms length, abstract and out of reach.
