The Unknown Woman, according to Carl Jung, represents the personification of the feminine nature of a man's unconscious. She is an archetype of all the ancestral experiences of the female. She represents the tension our modern society feels as the feminine aspect of our collective psyche strives to regain the balance humanity once had between themselves and nature. It is a calling to return to the primitive human attitude that is always on the alert to the unknown powers that guide one's life.

The feminine is now calling from behind the veil of our senses and our thinking. She is attempting to go beyond words of mere lip service to how to solve the problems of our time. She urgently seeks positive action towards global unification and a sincere reconnection to what it means to be human: compassionate, tolerant, mindful, heartfull, and connected to the deeper wisdom of spirit.
