Elizabeth Gilbert: Your Elusive Genius


From Sharon:

In my ruminations on the discussion [on James Hillman and active imagination] I remembered a TED Talk by Elizabeth Gilbert, a writer.  It’s about 20 minutes long. In the first seven minutes she’s giving some background to what she wants to offer. Then she talks about the daimon, and she gives some fascinating examples of other writers’ experiences.  In light of our discussion, what she’s talking about can apply to much, much more than writing.

James Hillman, eminent Jungian analyst and founder of archetypal psychology, died Thursday, October 27, 2011. You can read the New York Times’ obituary, and a lovely post on Through a Jungian Lens.

Acorns, Daimons, Gods, Guides, and Road Maps

An excellent article on the Bridges and Burrows blog, titled “Is Your Life Full Enough?”.

“Why do we yearn to be happy in our own skins, to be at peace with ourselves and our environment, to experience joy? It’s because human beings are designed for holiness, to be discontent until we become the most authentically unique person we can be. We’re most alive when we discover our unique life purpose.
