A look at the symbolism of The New Testament


A Guide to the Flowering of the Inner Life

Tony Crisp

Through my work with dreams, and my research into how the unconscious spontaneously lets bubbles of experience flow into consciousness, I became interested in the symbols in the New Testament.


I feel sure the gospel stories are about how we all meet the deepest aspects of our own life – moments such as realising we are more than we thought we were. Moments such as bringing something new of ourselves to birth; experiences such as realising our own mortality and immortality.
