The Prayer-Poem and Jung’s Use of Active-Imagination
- 1 Downloads
The article develops the concept of the prayer poem as a method for spiritual insearch. It further attempts to relate the process of the prayer-poem to Carl Jung’s use of “active-imagination” as a way of pushing the poetic image to a deeper level of meaning and usefulness. The prayer-poem can be a window into the psyche (soul).
