Leanne Whitney, PhD, is author of Consciousness in Jung and Patanjali. She is a transformational coach and also teaches yoga philosophy to yoga teachers.
Here she provides an overview of Jungian psychology — focusing on the special relationship between Freud and Jung. She also describes key Jungian concepts including archetypes, the collective unconscious, synchronicity, the self, word association tests, and creative illness. She notes that Jung studied many of the world’s mythological, religious, and mystical systems. He felt that medieval alchemy best fit with his own experience of unconscious dynamics.

He is also a past vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology; and is the recipient of the Pathfinder Award from that Association for his contributions to the field of human consciousness exploration.
