As we speed towards the next millennium, many of us are taking stock of the presences and absences in our lives. In Dancing in the Flames, Marion Woodman, along with reputed therapist Elinor Dickson, points to the gaping hole in our spiritual fabric. Unlike other cultures and eras, modern Western society has repressed notions of the Divine Feminine, possibly to the detriment of our psyches, our bodies, and even our planet. This landmark book, which draws from art, fables, science and dreams, creates a vista from which to view our imbalances and provides hope for celebration as we turn to embrace a lost aspect of ourselves. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Knowing Woman

In this classic work, a noted Jungian analyst explores the division of the human psyche into masculine and feminine. Characteristic of feminine consciousness, she writes, is diffuse awareness, which recognizes the unity of all life and promotes acceptance and relationship. The masculine attitude is one of focused consciousness, the capacity to formulate ideas and to change, invent, and create. Concerned with the experience of women in a culture dominated by masculine values, the author discusses topics such as the animus (the masculine "soul image" in a woman's unconscious); women's roles in relation to work, friends, children, and lovers; and issues such as abortion, aging, and self-determination.

From Robert Bly, author of the groundbreaking bestseller Iron John, and famed Jungian analyst Marion Woodman comes an interpretation of a primordial folktale that takes the message behind Iron John to its next phase: the reunion of masculine and feminine. Bly and Woodman interpret the archetypal symbols embedded in an ancient Russian story, The Maiden King, a tale woven of an absent father, a possessive stepmother, a false tutor, and a young man over-whelmed by a beautiful maiden. When the young man's weak response to the maiden ss her retreating in anger, he must go on a quest for self-discovery that leads to Baba Yaga, the fierce yet empowering old woman of Russian folk tradition. The male tency toward impotence in the face of feminine magnificence, the female fear of power and abandonment that leads to rage, the need to get beyond oppositional thinking en route to the Divine, these are issues the book addresses with wisdom and lyricism. The true heir to Iron John, The Maiden King may be the intellectual answer to Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.

“If you’ve never read it, read it now.”—Arianna Huffington, O, The Oprah Magazine Landmark, groundbreaking, classic—these adjectives barely do justice to the pioneering vision and lasting impact of The Feminine Mystique. Published in 1963, it gave a pitch-perfect description of “the problem that has no name”: the insidious beliefs and institutions that undermined women’s confidence in their intellectual capabilities and kept them in the home. Writing in a time when the average woman first married in her teens and 60 percent of women students dropped out of college to marry, Betty Friedan captured the frustrations and thwarted ambitions of a generation and showed women how they could reclaim their lives. Part social chronicle, part manifesto, The Feminine Mystique is filled with fascinating anecdotes and interviews as well as insights that continue to inspire. This 50th–anniversary edition features an afterword by best-selling author Anna Quindlen as well as a new introduction by Gail Collins.

INTO THE HEART OF THE FEMININE: AN ARCHETYPAL JOURNEY TO RENEW STRENGTH, LOVE, AND CREATIVITY Into the Heart of the Feminine: An Archetypal Journey to Renew Strength, Love, and Creativity Massimilla Harris, Ph.D. and Bud Harris, Ph.D. Daphne Publications 978-0-692-31144-8 $ 16.99 In their new book, Into the Heart of the Feminine: An Archetypal Journey to Renew Strength, Love, and Creativity, Jungian analysts and authors Massimilla and Bud Harris dynamically weave their own personal and professional experiences in the form of rich and compelling stories, providing a down-to-earth book available to a wide audience. A Book for Women...and for Men Imagine within each of us, there is a deep, powerful source for living lives of love, creativity, and fulfillment. To imagine this foundation for life and the energy it produces is to imagine ourselves and our world filled with the influence of the archetypal feminine - her passionate creativity, love, and ageless knowing. Personally and culturally, this force - which lives at the heart of our lives - has been diminished and wounded until it seems to have retreated beyond the horizon, in a world filled with rationalism and an anxious search for the material "good life." This is a powerfully moving book that goes beyond gender roles into the soul of the archetypal feminine, exploring how it has been damaged and traumatized, and finding out how this condition affects all of us. ..".an intimate tone that makes the volume accessible and inspiring, even for those unfamiliar with Jungian psychology." - FOREWORD REVIEW, Spring 2015 "In this compelling book, Jungian analysts Massimilla and Bud Harris explore the power of the Death Mother complex that 'drains our energy, saps our vitality, and drags us down.' Drawing upon personal experience, clinical practice, archetypal stories, and the myth of Medusa, the authors describe not only the paralyzing effects of the Death Mother complex, but the steps needed to transform it into healing and vitalizing energy. This engaging, moving work offers wisdom to both men and women who seek to liberate their deepest creative potential." - Susan Olson, Jungian analyst and author of By Grief Transformed: Dreams and the Mourning Process "Transforming the Death Mother's influence within ourselves for the sake of healing and wholeness will take courage, perseverance, and time. Fortunately for the reader, Massimilla and Bud prove themselves to be trustworthy and compelling guides who help you to travel safely."
