At the Heart of Matter: Synchronicity and Jung's Spiritual Testament (New)

by Sparks, Gary

Publisher: Inner City Books

Binding: Paperback

Book ID: 9781894574204, 1894574206

Price: $30.00


This is an extraordinary book. It is important both for its clarification of the phenomenon of synchronicity and for its implications for the survival of Western civilization.

The author, schooled in religious studies and science, takes readers gently through a basic understanding of physics, from classical Newtonian to modern quantum, and weds that to C.G. Jung’s long-standing enquiry into the enigmatic relationship between matter and spirit, selfhood and destiny.

Here we meet the conjunction in time of three great minds: Swiss psychiatrist Jung; Nobel Prize-winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli; and the celebrated analyst-scholar Marie-Louise von Franz in their efforts to understand the mysterious interpenetration of time and the timeless.

The journey is exciting and illuminating, and certain to mark a watershed in an understanding of the individuation process and the evolving practice of analytical psychology as a holistic approach to healing psychological ills.

J. Gary Sparks, B.Sc., M.Div., M.A., is a graduate of Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA; the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA; and the C.G. Jung Institute of Zurich, Switzerland. He is a former Peace Corps Korea Volunteer during the early 1970s and co-editor of Edward F. Edinger’s Science of the Soul (2002) and Ego and Self: The Old Testament Prophets (2000). He is widely known in North America for his lectures and seminars on the significance and application of Jungian psychology.

Bits of its teachings, such as the use of the magic whistle for summoning spirits, are alluded to in other texts. Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
