Achieved my Masters in Mythology!


Hi everyone!


It certainly seems like a very long time since I have given an update. Today I bring exciting news to share —I’ve recently earned my Master’s degree in Mythology with a focus on Depth Psychology! This is a huge milestone for me, and it’s just the beginning. I’m now diving into the dissertation phase at Pacifica Graduate Institute, aiming to graduate in 2026 with a doctorate. I can’t wait to bring all this new knowledge into our Reiki sessions to help us all grow and reach new levels of enlightenment.


So, what exactly is Mythology? In a nutshell, it’s all about studying the traditional stories that different cultures have passed down through the ages. These myths often explain natural events, cultural practices, and the human experience. They give us a peek into the beliefs and values of various societies. By exploring these stories, we can better understand ourselves and the world we live in.


Depth Psychology is equally fascinating. It digs into the deeper, often unconscious parts of our minds. Think of it as exploring the hidden layers of your psyche, including dreams, repressed memories, and symbols that shape our behavior and thoughts. This field was pioneered by thinkers like Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. By bringing these hidden elements to light, we can achieve personal growth and healing.


Many of you have been asking about my dissertation topic, so here’s a brief overview. My dissertation focuses on the archetypal image of primordial chaos or primordial waters found in the Middle East and Asia—regions that are often overlooked in mythological and depth psychological studies. Why is this important? Primordial chaos or waters are believed to have created the entire universe and are present in all major religions. These depths are where deities are born and contain all the material (prima materia) necessary for the creation of life.


Within mythology, this ancient substance is fascinating in its own right. However, when we intertwine Depth Psychology into our understanding, this image as an archetype represents the collective unconscious. If this truly is its representation, then our ancestors understood that our collective unconscious holds all the knowledge and energy needed to create anything in the universe. This concept is echoed in Taoism, where the Tao is seen as the substance that creates chi, which in turn creates the universe.


So you, my friend, have the Tao within your mind to generate the chi you need—not just to heal, but to create.


As I continue my journey towards a doctorate, I’m thrilled to weave this rich tapestry of Mythology and Depth Psychology into our Reiki sessions. This blend will enhance our work together, providing deeper insights and fostering greater healing. I look forward to supporting your enlightenment process and contributing to the highest good of all. Let’s continue to explore the depths of the human psyche and the transformative power of myth together!


Sending light and love,


Jaclyn
