My guest today is the amazingly articulate and incredibly insightful Dr. Susan E Schwartz. Susan is a Jungian analyst educated in Zurich, Switzerland and a licensed clinical psychologist. For many years she’s provided workshops, presentations, and lectures on various aspects of Jungian analytical psychology. She is also author of a new book, The Absent Father Effect On Daughters: Father Desire, Father Wounds. It’s a great read for anyone suffering from an emotionally distant relationship with their father, or for fathers who are looking to raise emotionally secure daughters. I really enjoyed my conversation with Susan and I hope you enjoy it as well.
In our conversation we discussed the mythologies we connect with, birth and death, memory and intellect, moral superiority, Egypt, Osiris and Isis, differentiating ourselves, dreams, it’s not what’s right, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, psychoanalysis, absent fathers, the Absent Father Effect, embodying your entire being, gods, worship, economics, health, relationships, ownership, entertainment, critical thinking, encouragement to follow yourself, being outside the group, podcasting, the answer is more people talking and listening, the East and the West, cultures, questioning ourselves, the ability to evaluate oneself, how you become yourself, the process of individuation, the Journey of a Lifetime, admitting your shadow, childhood trauma, childhood agreements with self, secrets, synchronicities, and doing it to the max.
