The Wounded Healer, Part 1
Posted on July 15, 2009 by Paul • 15 Comments
One of the deeper, underlying archetypal patterns which is being constellated in the human psyche that is playing
itself out collectively on the world stage is the archetype of the “wounded healer.”
To quote Kerenyi, a colleague of Jung who elucidated this archetype, the wounded healer refers psychologically to the
capacity “to be at home in the darkness of suffering and there to find germs of light and recovery with which, as
though by enchantment, to bring forth Asclepius, the sunlike healer.”
The archetype of the wounded healer reveals to us that it is only by being willing to face, consciously experience
and go through our wound do we receive its blessing.
