Self and self

Found in the 'Notes' section at the back of the book:
Women Who Run With The Wolves
Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D.

You may wonder how many "selfs," that is, centers of consciousness, there are in the psyche. There are many, with one usually the most dominant. Like the pueblos and casitas in New Mexico, the psyche is always in at least three stage --- the old fallen down part, the part you live in, and the part under construction. It is like that.
Also, in Jungian theory, the Self with a capital S means the vast soul force. The self with a lower case s signifies the more personal, more limitable person that we are.
