My wild and wonderful guest is Erick Godsey. Erick is a student of the psyche, dreams, myths, and Jungian Psychology. He is also writer, mindset coach and host of the podcast The Myths That Make Us. In today’s episode we discuss the process of individuation, synchronicities, and the hero’s journey. This episode recorded before the Covid-19 pandemic seems almost prophetic and a timely episode for us all if we want to seize this opportunity to become a more complete and whole individual. We discuss how you can hear and answer the call to step into your highest self. We discuss what the Ego is and did so in a beautifully poetic way that blends Jungian psychology, spirituality, and nature connection. If you are into personal development and living your best life than you do not want to miss this episode. Enjoy the show!
