The Mandala—an exploration on Speaking of Jung

I was the guest on Speaking of Jung, a remarkable podcast run by Laura London. We were joined by Jungian analyst Dr. Kenneth James, and the focus was the overlap of UFO contact and the symbolic "story elements" that seem to arise within these elusive events. These ideas were explored through a Jungian lens. I told of my "night in the tent" experience from 2010. This involved an irrational feeling of terror, and then seeing a floating mandala in the tent. It was the role of they mythic symbol that was the centerpiece of the episode. 

What emerged was a remarkable conversation, with a curious thread of healing that ran through the overall points of the dialog. Thank you Laura and Dr. James! This interview is highly recommended.

Beyond the powerful content, Laura's site is worth visiting because of the beautiful layout. I know what it means to create something tasteful for a personal website and a podcast. Listen up people, this is how it should be done—it's glorious!

Laura and I spoke last week for my podcast series The Unseen, and we spoke about Jung and hid book Flying Saucers, A modern Myth of Things Seen in the Sky. Laura discussed Jung's book, and also shared some of her powerful life events. This equally remarkable episode is linked HERE

Hello Mike,
I listened to your interview on Speaking of Jung and enjoyed it very much. I am deeply into Jung and I have had some very interesting experiences with owls. They weren't UFO experiences but they were interesting in their own right. I'm currently reading your book The Messengers and I find it fascinating. Thank you very much for your work.
