On Thursday March 22, the Myth Salon will be visited by Michael Gellert, author of The Divine Mind: Exploring the Psychological History of God’s Inner Journey, Modern Mysticism, The Fate of America, and The Way of the Small. He is a Jungian analyst and formerly the Director of Training at the CG Jung Institute in Los Angeles. His website is www.michaelgellert.com. His new book, The Divine Mind, tells the story of the Abrahamic God’s inner journey: who he originally was—a God tormented and divided against himself and humanity—and who he became is a journey from trauma to redemption, from affliction to enlightenment. Spanning from the scriptures of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to their later mystical teachings, the book explains many of the Hebrew Bible’s darker moments yet concludes on the same joyful note as his journey, namely, on a celebration of his deep, mystical nature. It shows how his inner journey offers us a metaphor for our own.
