Description

This uses the story of Jung’s encounter with Izdubar, the God figure who is reduced to an egg and then deliberately revived, to explore the potential of the Middle Way in relation to God in Jung’s experience, and compare it to the Middle Way discovered by the Buddha in the course of his quest for enlightenment.
