This timely publication, written in 2021, investigates the psychological underpinnings of world events since 2020 using the framework of Depth Psychology as its basis. There are four sections: 1) Part One overviews Carl Jung's model of the human psyche; 2) Part Two outlines Stanislav Grof's investigation into the psychology of non-ordinary experiences of consciousness; 3) Part Three looks at the relationship between depth psychology and astrology. This section includes a case study of the current crisis and the astrological and psychological dynamics underlying it ; and 4) Part 4 takes a critical look at the paradigm of scientific materialism and explores how we can "rediscover the sacred". Numerous quotes from Manly P. Hall are featured throughout.
