This thesis is an inquiry into the nature of trauma through the lenses of yoga and analytical psychology and includes important contributions from somatic psychology. The face of trauma and its journey toward wholeness is thus defined as much more than a psychological diagnosis. Utilizing alchemical hermeneutic and heuristic research methodologies, the author explains how analytical psychology and yoga can be theoretically integrated and clinically applied to remedy trauma in the bodymind. Findings include comparisons between both methods, components of the therapeutic relationship, and the art of improvisation in clinical application as influenced by principles of meditation and alchemy. Finally, analytical psychology and yoga theory are presented in tandem within a holistic model. This model is a map and hypothesis for transcending the trauma complex and living life more fully, healing the mind and body, and treating the condition at its root and stem.
