“Dr. Jung once said that medieval man lived by either-or, but that modern person cannot go off to a convent or the Himalayas exclusively to search for spirituality;
nor can she /he pour herself/himself exclusively into the family, profession or practicality.
It is a true task of a truly modern mind to endure both the spiritual and practical as the framework for the life.”
Robert A.Johnson, a Jungian analyst
