My presentation
Innate or Emergent? Jung, Yoga and the Archetype of the Self

When comparing the Classical Yoga of Patañjali to Jungian-oriented depth psychology it appears Jung has the ontic and epistemic enmeshed in a way that Patañjali does not. In regards to emergence and the archetype of the Self, this presentation considers the critical discernments theoreticians must make between being and becoming.
