I’ve been reading Robert A. Johnson’s Inner Work: Using Dreams and Active Imagination for Personal Growth
In it, Robert explains “Inner work is the effort by which we gain awareness of the deeper layers of consciousness within us and move toward integration of the total self.”
Also, “Every person must live the inner life in one form or another. Consciously or unconsciously, voluntarily or involuntarily, the inner world will claim us an exact its dues. If we go to that realm consciously, it is by our inner work: our prayers, meditations, dream work, ceremonies, and Active Imagination. If we try to ignore the inner world, as most of us do, the unconscious will find its way into our lives through pathology: our psychosomatic symptoms, compulsions, depressions, and neuroses.”
