This thesis utilizes an alchemical hermeneutic methodology, from a Jewish mystical and Jungian depth psychological perspective, to examine the spiral journey of the ego around the inner God image (center of the wheel of time) as a means to growth and transformation. As the ego learns to align its being with the flowing stream of time (God image), the ego is simultaneously freed from pointless struggles and battles. This perspective places individuation and self-actualization at the center of psychotherapeutic work and acknowledges the rhythmic nature of the therapeutic process that is often long, laborious, and winding, and yet leads to the aspired destination of integration and wholeness. A delineation of the yearly cycle includes aspects of the author’s personal journey of consciously following the spiral of time to demonstrate how time can be utilized as a path to grow and transcend in the image of one’s Godly soul.
