The Trance of Our Unlived Life

Carl Jung once said that nothing has a stronger influence psychologically, on their environment, and especially on their children, than the unlived life of the parents. If we don’t open fully to our buried longings and loneliness, passions and fears, we become confined to a small, limited sense of who we are.

When we notice we are caught in this imprisoning trance of our unlived lives, coming back into our bodies opens up a larger space of presence. In this short video, we'll explore how staying with our present moment experience and bringing care to the life within gives us more creativity and spontaneity in responding to the world around us.
