Jung and Islam: Two Pilgrims Leading to the Soul... (Paperback)
"A treasure indeed to have Dr. Moacanin draw on her years of experience applying Jungian psychology to lead us with penetrating psychological insights into the psyche of the Muslim and all religious worlds."
-John Maxwell Taylor, Author of "Forever Jung"
Both Jungian psychology and the teaching of Islam reveal pathways to the completion of the human spirit. The insights and 'systems' of each are founded on inspiration not imitation, the unique experiential inner journey toward fulfillment. If you are to take the interpretation of self-directed (greater) jihad it beautifully coincides with Jung's process of individuation. While Islam is more regimented and specifically detailed than Jungian processes, if one is to put jihad in its appropriate spiritual place it becomes an individual spiritual quest rather that an outer political struggle. The completion of both bears no difference- the goal is fulfillment.
