Transcendence and creativity are supremely important archetypes in Jungian psychology. In order to create, or make something new and different, we have to transcend, or go somewhere above and beyond. We must surpass the limits of the ordinary in order to experience the extraordinary. For us to become far better or far greater than ever before, we have to exceed expectations and go even further, toward a consciousness that is really and truly transcendent and creative. We will discuss impressive examples of these archetypes in life and art, and we will have an opportunity to share personal experiences of transcendence and creativity.
