In this life journey that Jung called individuation, he discovered internal subpersonalities–the lover within, the creative archetype, the wounded child, and the innocent/divine child. Cherry’s story reveals all of these motifs in a natural, dialogical style as the heroine overcomes a painful mid-life entrapment. Within a courageous, honest and trusting consciousness which is in total contrast to her otherwise previous need to control, she allows the wisdom of her Soul to unfold. Overall, Cherry’s story supports the spiritual view that the Soul is dynamically oriented toward an authentic happiness and freedom, in spite of the historical wounds and blockages which we all experience.
