Should I, as a layperson, be involved in this discussion? I suppose you are talking about Self (to try to answer where to begin). Man and His Symbols is a good introduction to Jung for all purposes. Perhaps something about that "wise woman" can be found here http://stottilien.com/2013/02/01/queen-mother-wise-woman-and-lover-... and/or here http://suite101.com/a/the-heroines-journey-a190932
Thank you for your response. I will check out your suggestions.
