Depth Psychology: Death of, Substitute for, or a Deepening of Faith?

It seems as I read Jung and post-Jungian folks, there is a splintering of consensus as to whether religion/faith/spirituality is a neurosis, an immature interpretation of the ways of the Psyche, or a valid path to that same Psyche. Jung states that if an individual is following a faith with a certain intensity, then most problems of the Psyche are contained, yet he is highly suspicious of the collective consciousness, which can be interpreted as the Church or any other "organized" religion.

How do you see depth psychology relating to faith traditions?

Amen = So Be It

I believe that spirituality and religion are valid paths and like all things human - will manifest the full spectrum of experience
