Are you intrigued by the enigmatic allure of the Gothic? Do you find yourself drawn to its haunting landscapes and complex characters? If so, you've come to the right place.

 

We understand that navigating the depths of Gothic literature can be both thrilling and intimidating, and more so when it is not within everybody's reach.

 

That's why we're here to guide you through the labyrinth of the Gothic world and illuminate its hidden meanings, regardless of how familiar you are with it or not.

Welcome to "In Search of the Gothic," a space where we delve deep into the intricate webs of shadows and lights within the realms of Gothic literature and productions with Gothic elements.

 

Our unique perspective involves examining classic and modern dark tales as well as other artistic productions and forms of expression through the lens of Jungian psychology.

 

Our goal:

 

Help you grow and discover all your potential both at a personal and a professional level through your favourite lens

Through our services and courses, we aim to help you solve several key problems, but not the only ones:

  1. Having a deeper understanding of your favourite texts: The Gothic in general is known for its rich symbolism and psychological depth. We help unravel the complexities of these works and representations, allowing you to appreciate them at a deeper level.

  2. Personal growth through the understanding of the human psyche: By examining Gothic themes, symbols, settings and motifs through the Jungian lens, we provide insights into the human psyche and offer pathways for personal growth and self-reflection.

  3. Learn to navigate darkness: The Gothic often explores themes of fear, uncertainty, and the unknown that can sometimes be overwhelming. That's why we offer guidance on confronting and understanding these darker aspects of human experience in a safe context.

  4. The current cultural relevance: In today's world, where the Gothic continues to influence literature, film, and art, understanding its themes and motifs is more important than ever. We bridge the gap between past and present, exploring how the Gothic remains relevant in contemporary society.

  5. Find your own myth: As we explore the Gothic, we discover aspects of ourselves that we might not have been aware of. The Gothic is a great self-exploration tool that when used under the right lens can give us meaning and purpose. In other words, it can help us write our own myth. 

Join us on an exciting journey and be enlightened by all the secret messages the Gothic has in store for you. We will discover the hidden treasures within its shadows as we unravel its mysteries.

“Very well defined Alicia, as always, a really deep and erudite vision on the subject. I wish there were not so much commercial gothic disco, noise and vice and there were more introspective minds.."

The Person Behind this Project

Follow me outside Medium .jpg

My name is Alicia Domínguez, and I am an English philologist with a Master's in Jungian psychology.

I am on a mission to help others unlock their hidden potential by exploring Gothic elements in literature, film, art, and music through a Jungian lens, uncovering the Celtic roots that empower their self-development journey.

After graduating from the Universitat de Barcelona (UB) in 2008, I embarked on my journey as an independent scholar and researcher in Gothic Literature while working as a language teacher and coordinator.

In 2011, my husband and I opened a language school when our first child was only six months old. In 2014, our second son, a rainbow baby, was born, prompting us to make some changes to our business and start looking at the online realm.

Experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, a non-evolutive twin pregnancy, and my husband's near-death experience profoundly changed my views on motherhood and life. These experiences have become the foundation of my academic research, my courses, products, and services.

It is my unique experiences and perspectives that inspire and enlighten others in their process of finding light in their darkness.

So tell me, what's your story?
