Archaeologist of the soul

As a child, Carl Jung dreamt of becoming a world-famous archaeologist.

Traversing the globe, excavating treasures from the collective past. Unearthing artefacts lost below the surface to see history and humanity anew.

But due to limited financial resources, Jung studied medicine at the University of Basel to become a doctor like his grandfather. It was the sensible thing to do, the acceptable thing to do.

It wasn’t long before Jung switched his studies to psychiatry to pursue his interests in theology, dreams and the mind.

Instead of searching for bones and broken pottery underground, he sought to uncover the mysteries of the subconscious.

He became an archaeologist of the soul.
