The Red Book has been described as Jung’s creative response to the threat of madness, yet it has also been seen as a deliberate exercise in self-analysis. I believe it’s likely both. When creating The Red Book, Jung knew he was on the verge of madness, and he also knew his analytical skills and expertise as a psychiatrist were his best chance at alleviating suffering, if not creating the conditions for transformation.

Please visit my new website/blog. That’s where it’s all happening these days. It includes all of the archives from this blog, all of my new blog posts AND all the goodies that were on my old ScottFree2b website. This blog is a lame duck – nothing else is going to be happening here.
Thank you thank you for your continued interest in Breathing (this blog) but honestly, we can all continue breathing in the new venue ;)

As I hope many of you know already, I have moved my blogging activity to my new website http://www.trishascott.com. On that site I have included the archives from this site. It is where my new posts will appear as well as all of my work from the old website scottfree2b.com and all of the services I offer.
I have just discovered, though, that there is a newish wordpress perk with which you can Re-Blog a post that you like from another blogger. I love this. Problem is that it doesn’t work for self hosted sites. Actually that’s OK. I can still Re-Blog posts I think are great and they end up here!
So this is now my official Re-Blogging place and my Official Home is trishascott.com. It all works out. So if you like the things I am re-blogging I welcome you to my new world here!

Meditation - Keith Jarrett
If you don't know Keith Jarrett he's a pianist and this is a piano piece that is called meditation. Given I often post actual meditations on this blog I thought I might need to point that out.
I love Anne Lamott. She is among my favorite writers because of her raw, honest turn of phrase and her fearlessness that allows her to cut right to the chase. In her efforts to thoroughly understand herself, she is a mirror for her readers.
In 2009, she wrote this gorgeous article in O, The Oprah Magazine, about how to be who you are meant to be.
