Snapshots of external and internal transformation are offered via personal dreams and experiences, as well as clinical case material.
Miss Frank Miller: Jung's Sherpa from Alabama — Samuel L. Ryals
The life of Miss Frank Miller has been examined by two Jung historians, Sonu Shamdasani and Florent Serina. Miller was the subject of Carl Jung's 1912 Transformations and Symbols of the Libido and his 1952 revision, Symbols of Transformation. Though their research took the Miller mysteries out of the Stygian darkness, key genealogical questions remained about her childhood and death. This article fills in gaps about her childhood and argues that Jung's reading of the Miller fantasies was an important event during his watershed studies of mythology.
The Living Skeleton: A Depth Psychological Study of Anorexia Nervosa based on C.G. Jung's Complex Theory — Casey J. Winter
Anorexia nervosa is a complex psychological disorder characterized by significantly low body weight due to starvation induced by body dysmorphia and extreme fear of weight gain. Furthermore, anorexia nervosa is often accompanied by suicidality, and has the highest mortality rate of all psychiatric illnesses. In its totality, anorexia nervosa presents grave physical danger to individuals, and can be challenging to treat therapeutically due to its unknown causes and origin. The purpose of this paper is to delve deeply into anorexia nervosa using depth psychology to determine theoretical possibilities for its presentation beyond the current clinical view. The research was conducted by applying C.G. Jung's complex theory to the condition to determine whether anorexia nervosa is a psychological complex, namely a death complex, within the psyche.
Soul and Spirit from a Psychological Perspective — Paul Ashton

Tropes of Trackings, Tropes of Traps — Craig Canfield
This paper reviews a number of the contributing essays to ''The Unconscious Roots of Creativity," edited by Kathryn Madden. The word "aperture" in the title of the first essay of the collection, James Hollis's "All is Fire: The Imagination as Aperture into Psyche," leaves etymological hints not only of "opening," "of letting light through," but also of "uncovering." Thus, in various other essays in this volume the concern is with the theory as well as the practical means of uncovering the latent creativity of the Psyche. Imagination is the key. Here the springs of the Imagination are approached via use of the Jungian symbol. The project of depth Psychology and many of the Arts as well," bringing us in touch with this 'invisible" world, is elucidated. This world is approached by Jung through Poetry and the verbal symbol. Chapters also present ideas of dancers, actors and Poets tracking such searches, while carefully depicting the possible pitfalls of such endeavors.
