Exploring the World of Archetypes
Contemporary Acrylic paintings by Doreen Coyne

We do not become enlightened by imagining figures of light. but by making the darkness conscious.     - Carl Jung 

*Archetypes are said to be "ancient structures of the psyche, archaic myths, as well as forces of nature recognized by both physicists and shamans". - Four Winds

 

Using a version of the "strong eye technique" of the Aboriginal shaman, I turn inward letting the linear, rational world fade into the background of my consciousness.  It is here in the non-ordinary realm - the world of archetypes - that I find the source of my imagery.
