The Lion Hunt of Marchos -
Desire and Transformation

Green Lion
According to Jung, the lion is a symbol of...
’the passionate emotionality that preceeds the recognition of unconscious contents’
— Jung, para 404, vol 14, Mysterium Conjunctionis

The Lion Hunt of Marchos is a symbolic story based on an Arabic text from the 10th century A.D. Jung refers to this story in "Mysterium Coniunctionis". The lion represents the ‘passionate emotionality’ which can overwhelm consciousness (sun). The lecture examines the story and the insights it offers us for dealing with passionate emotionality (desire) in one’s own life
