Family Series: Inspired By Carl Jung

‘Weaving Families Of The World’ is a photographic project inspired by Krunals’ interest in Carl Jung. Jung explains that when we build a strong and meaningful connection with our family, friends and our environment, we become firmly rooted to our own existence as human beings.

Jung uses the elephant as an analogy to explain it is through the support of our ‘Family, tribe, community, earth’ (Redmond 55:2004) that we feel significant and essentially become empowered co-creators of our own lives.

Nurturing The Essence

by Monday, March 26, 2018


24 days old Sabina Blu comes out of a Native American sweat-lodge ceremony originating in Mexico called Temazcal with her father Tomas.

As well as cleansing the body, Temazcal has the power to bring us back to our centre; calm, collected and in tune with our body.

This can be explained by the heat experienced during the Temazcal, which can be very challenging.

With little to no space to move & with others sitting in and around you, the steam that is released of hot stones (revered as grandmothers) can be hard to endure.

There is an urge to want to leave as the mind thinks its in trouble and fear mounts.

By surrendering to the heat that Temazcal brings, and singing sacred songs with others inside the dome shaped hut, thoughts of wanting to leave wane, overcome by the power of the shared heart.

During this process, there is an understanding and discovery of ones own inner-strength and power as a human being.
