The Tree Of Life – A comprehensive map of human psyche

The tree of life is a fundamental archetype in many mythological, religious and philosophical traditions of the world. It is closely related to the concept of the sacred tree.

Two famous French psychoanalysts (Aruna and Jean-Pierre Le Gouguec) have used this representation of the Tree of Life to draw a detailed and comprehensive map of human psyche.
