This thesis seeks to answer the question: Does the language of the soul have the ability to create a feminine space of understanding and relax ego defenses, thus creating the safety for the self-healing mechanism to be activated? The methodology used in this research is qualitative, utilizing both text-based and arts-based data with an alchemical hermeneutic approach. A combination of personal visions, poetry and depth psychology are used to examine the language of the soul, and suggests that if one can find a way to hear this voice, it contains the possibility of profound healing. This process can be engendered therapeutically by adhering to the feminine principle that keeps in mind the deep wisdom that can be manifested by the ego’s realization that it is subordinate to the greater wisdom of the Self.
