Symbols and numbers may underlie the very fabric of our reality.
On the playground as a young girl I fell off a swing and was knocked unconscious. Numbers and symbols cascaded before my eyes. And then I woke up.
According to C.G Jung
Man is in need of a symbolic life — badly in need. We only live banal, ordinary, rational, or irrational things … but we have no symbolic life. Where do we live symbolically? Nowhere except where we participate in the ritual of life…
When one lives symbolically every event can be viewed through an archetypal lens — revealing an underlying order and meaning. Life truly becomes a sacred experience.
This section will explore restoring a magical context to our lives.
