Jung believed that regaining one’s religious attitude was an important part of the task of individuation. In this talk I offer some theological reflections on this process. First, I provide a sketch of Jung’s understanding of the religious attitude and function and a brief overview of key features of Christian theologies of participation in the divine (also known as deification). In the main part of the talk, I bring these theological themes into conversation with Jung’s account of his own experience in the first section of the Red Book. I conclude with some further thoughts for ongoing dialogue between Jungian psychology and Christian theology.
