Mediation & Union: The Function of the Divine Feminine in the Process of Individuation

Pamela Fuhrmann

“Mediation & Union: The Function of the Divine Feminine in the Process of Individuation” marries mythology and psychology in the exploration of the archetypal qualities of the divine feminine as they relate to the Jungian theory of personal development. Through a review of the mythologies of the Sumerian goddess Inanna and the Christian Virgin Mary, this study examines the aspects of the divine feminine as they relate to furthering consciousness, individually and collectively. Pamela contends that within the complexity, uncertainty, and change apparent within the modem era, the most vital developmental objectives align with the mediating and uniting attributes of the divine feminine. This alignment is most apparent through the capacity to hold dialogue with, interact with, and know other; balance the tension of paradoxical and liminal states which arise through a relationship with other; mediate and reconcile contraries; and thus press towards wholeness and self-actualization. What is explored herein is a wisdom that evolves through relationship with "other," whether it is the inner other, another human being, or self in relation to world.
