Sophia & Sustainability

In considering our relationship to the earth, the archetype of Sophia rises to prominence.


Jung has written that Sophia is the archetype of greatest universality. She is found throughout all cultures and all times.  She carries great wisdom and an all-embracing erotic vision of life, closely tied to the earth.  She is not just an abstract principle, but a path (encoded in her fundamental processes) moving us towards a goal. If we have a deeper understanding of Sophia’s principles, we will see she requires us (on many levels) to look at the quality of our living experience.
