Jung often saw parallels between our relationship to the unconscious and our relationship to Nature. According to Jung, “Nature is not matter only, she is spirit. Were that not so, the only source of spirit would be human reason. It is the great achievement of Paracelsus to have elevated the “light of nature” to a principle…The lumen naturae is the natural spirit, whose strange and significant workings we can observe in the manifestations of the unconscious….” This lecture will be an exploration of the concept of the Lumen Naturae and its importance in Jungian theory as well as the “light bringers” who deliver its message, via clinical and mythological/fairy tale material.
