Just want to call attention to my blog The Legacy of Henry Corbin which should be of interest to many participants of the Alliance.
How wonderful that this community is expanding so rapidly.

Shadow makes us attracted to a certain job and organisation. We utilise our talents in a job and also a piece of our shadow.
Shadow is what you don't want to be or what you admire. Unconsciously we are attracted to a job and organisation because of our shadow. Something inside us, attracts us to exactly the place where we can grow. We prefer to show a mask to hide our shadow. In Jungian terms this is our persona.

The D’mba headdress of the Baga people of Guinea West Africa was first recognized and recorded by Europeans in 1886, yet definitive understanding of D'mba remains elusive.[i] There are several reasons for the enigma surrounding D’mba’s meaning and function.

That is the reason why she is still referred to by the name of Nimba, which is the Susu word for…Continue

"Had Jung pursued his research in this area further, he would not only have found evidence to support his theory of individuation, but would certainly have discovered the earliest structuring of the human psyche. With his genius, he certainly might have provided encyclopedic evidence that Ra is the personification of the Self. No doubt he would have gone further and found Horus to be the prototype for the ego archetype and Seth, the shadow archetype. Osiris would prove to be the prima…Continue
