ABOUT DAVID

DAVID ALEXANDER​

PHILOSOPHER | PSYCHOANALYST | PODCASTER

What brings me to The Walled Garden? I started intentionally studying Greek Stoicism in 2020 as part of a journey of self-discovery and searching for answers about how to practically help myself and help others endure the challenging times we are living in.

Stoic Philosophy is a useful jumping-off point to explore important questions: What is Human Nature? What is your Nature?

It is towards this goal, to “know thyself,” that I started studying Carl Jung’s theories regarding the structure of the psyche (soul) and the workings of the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind speaks in the language of dreams and symbols. Myths are the “collective dreams” of a culture and understanding mythology can help one learn to speak in the language of the unconscious.

Symbolic thinking is the language of dreams, poetry, and the unconscious. It is the language in which your unconscious mind speaks. You can learn to communicate with these messages sent from your inner self.

David Alexander (from Between Two Ravens: Norse Mythology Blog)

My goal in studying integrative disciplines of psychology, philosophy, and mythology is to better understand the self, thereby learning to better understand others. Learning to transform the self and build a life of meaning. I recently have started writing about my process of integrating my understanding of Greek philosophy and Jungian psychology for a blog I call the Prosoche Project.
