Jung's Global Vision Western Psyche Eastern Mindby David T. Johnston
Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, from India, were contemporaries of Jung. Their Integral Yoga can be characterized as based on the former’s observation that All Life is Yoga, just as Jung’s individuation process is founded on the fact that Everything Living Dreams of Individuation. In each case, the path involves a specific concentration of a natural phenomenon, which speeds up the process. This firm establishment in nature is a significant factor in distinguishing their spirituality and psychology and from other disciplines and methods. Both ways involve the incarnation of the Divine through individuals that leads to far-reaching transformation of both the individual and culture. In Jung’s Global Vision: Western Psyche Eastern Mind, Dr. Johnston outlines the striking similarities, as well as differences, between the path of individuation as outlined and lived by C. G. Jung, and the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
David T. Johnston is a practicing psychologist living in Victoria, BC, Canada. He resided in Pondicherry (now Puducherry), India, from 1970 to 1973, where he was introduced to the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. He lived there during Sri Aurobindo’s centenary in 1972. He subsequently studied at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1975, the year of Jung’s centenary. On several occasions, for extensive periods of time, he has visited Auroville, a township near Puducherry dedicated to the Mother’s vision. He received his PhD, phil. in clinical psychology at the Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California, in 1996.
Dr. Johnston is also an artist, where his art is a meditative means for him to enhance a living relationship between consciousness and the unconscious.
