SENEX AND PUER

product image
$40.00

This volume, for the first time, collects James Hillman s running encounters with a primary psychological pattern, an archetype that arises alongside the very attempt to fashion psychological perspective. Senex and puer are Latin terms for old man and youth, and personify the poles of tradition, stasis, structure, and authority on one side, and immediacy, wandering, invention and idealism on the other. The senex consolidates, grounds and disciplines; the puer flashes with insight and thrives on fantasy and creativity. These diverging, conflicting tendencies are ultimately interdependent, forming two faces of the one configuration, each face never far from the other. Old and new maybe the most direct terms for the pair."

Water Wars: Privatization, Pollution, and Profit

product image
$15.95

Acclaimed author and award-winning scientist and activist Vandana Shiva lucidly details the severity of the global water shortage, calling the water crisis the most pervasive, most severe, and most invisible dimension of the ecological devastation of the earth. She sheds light on the activists who are fighting corporate maneuvers to convert the life-sustaining resource of water into more gold for the elites and uses her knowledge of science and society to outline the emergence of corporate culture and the historical erosion of communal water rights. Using the international water trade and industrial activities such as damming, mining, and aquafarming as her lens, Shiva exposes the destruction of the earth and the disenfranchisement of the world's poor as they are stripped of rights to a precious common good. Revealing how many of the most important conflicts of our time, most often camouflaged as ethnic wars or religious wars, are in fact conflicts over scarce but vital natural resources, she calls for a movement to preserve water access for all and offers a blueprint for global resistance based on examples of successful campaigns.
Featuring a new introduction by the author, this edition of "Water Wars" celebrates the spiritual and traditional role water has played in communities throughout history and warns that water privatization threatens cultures and livelihoods worldwide."

Depth Psychology and the Digital Age

$17.99

Google "the digital age" and you'll discover it is rather broadly defined as "the present time"-when most information is available in digital form, as compared to the era before the rise of computers in the 1970s. Depth psychology is the study of the soul, first and foremost associated with uncovering and exploring the unconscious. The Greek word psyche means "butterfly," and is linked to the Greek anemos, meaning "wind" or "breath," as well as "soul" and "spirit"-all concepts that seem distinctly unrelated to technology, yet this diverse and compelling collection of depth psychological insights quickly reveals the archetypal aspects at work on all of us in the depths of the digital age. For one of the founders of modern depth psychology, Carl Gustav Jung, who was born in 1875 and died in 1961, the "digital age" remained in potentia, but even more than half a century ago, he had significant concerns about the challenges of a growing mind/matter split and the excessive focus of western cultures in particular on science, technology, and rational thinking. Jung believed this trend toward "modernity" emerged at the expense of more soulful, reflective, poetic ways of being and issued a strong caution against our increasing reliance on machines and technology. He warned of severe consequences that might ultimately propel our civilization toward collapse, unless modernity could be adequately acknowledged and dealt with from a psychological view. The rapid growth of technology in recent decades, combined with what is arguably a decided lack of psychological context around it, has contributed intensively to concerns for some regarding the speed and quantity of information we and our capacity to navigate such a tsunami of data. Technology has profoundly amplified the speed and efficiency at which we accomplish certain tasks, but at the same time has served to expedite the very pace of our lives, leaving us with little time for reflection and reconnection with things of the soul. Technology alone will never be that thing that enlivens us, enforces our sense of soul in a fast-moving world, and roots us in something which is inherently already there. With the proliferation of digital advances in an increasingly globalized culture, we tend to take "technologies" lightly, without giving them their proper ritual due. In earth-based cultures, "technologies of the sacred" have always encompassed ceremonies, invocations, and rites that created containers in which something very special could occur. Shamanism was only practiced within the proper context by individuals who were designated and prepared to enter sacred space. Over time as the ritual has been lost, the container has also crumbled, and technology is no longer wielded in sacred space but rather is used haphazardly by virtually all members of our society. What is asked for is that we re-boot our understanding of the psychological and soulful aspects of technology in order to adopt a new way of being in a digital world. Social media, video gaming, virtual reality, digital media, screen time, mobile devices, electronic music, "smart" technology, and electronic waste are all everyday imperatives in our current culture, and will continue to be future realities for decades, if not centuries, to come. While the digital age will always produce consternation, scintillation, and debate, no matter the pace of growth or decline, the essays and themes that appear in this collection are timeless, tapping into underlying ideas that can offer context and meaning for generations to come. The authors in this anthology proffer a chance to redeem ourselves, to re-invent our relationship to the digital age and re-infuse these sacred tools with meaning and soul. The details of our technologies may morph, but the contents of this volume are profoundly archetypal, offering patterns upon which we may predicate our own relationship to the depths and breadths of the digital age

Ages of Anxiety: Jung's Types as Inspiration for Poetry, Music, and Dance

product image
$29.95

Craig Stephenson draws on depth psychology to provide an original and profound study of W. H. Auden's Pulitzer Prize winning poem, The Age of Anxiety. In this dramatic poem, Auden draws on Jung's psychological typology to explore and develop the themes of identity and integrity in times of war. Stephenson examines Auden's use of Jung's critical psychology of type to understand the traumatic effects of war on the individual and collective psyche, as well as the noxious attractions of fascism. In this light, Stephenson also examines Leonard Bernstein's symphony, The Age of Anxiety (Symphony No. 2 for Piano and Orchestra), inspired by Auden's poem, and three ballets based on Bernstein's music, choreographed by Jerome Robbins (New York City Ballet), John Neumeier (Hamburg Ballet), and Liam Scarlett (Royal Ballet, London).

Using all these creative works as points for reflection, Stephenson surveys historically the concept of "anxiety," from Kierkegaard through five editions of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Interweaving Auden's exploration of the twentieth-century mind with Jungian depth psychology, Stephenson extrapolates forward into our time, with its mounting political tensions and escalating intolerance, and inquires into the sufferings currently diagnosed as "anxiety" and their significance.

Wild Wisdom: Animal Stories of the Southwest

$14.95

Delightful, humorous, and poignant, Wild Wisdom enchants readers with vivid and vibrant animal stories from Native American tradition. Native American animal stories embody a living tradition based on a mutually beneficial relationship with the natural world - one that continues to resonate to this day, and one that many of us long to experience. Animals add love, guidance, and joy to our lives. These uplifting stories will entertain and inspire, while celebrating the beauty and importance of the animal/human relationship. From Coyote telling us what not to do by doing it, to Hummingbird s healing hum, to Turkey saving Thanksgiving for everyone but himself, Wild Wisdom captures the connection we all have, regardless of who we are or where we live, to Native animal wisdom of the Southwest.

 

 

 

Myth reveals the transcendent truth in Native American narratives often seemingly clothed as children's stories. Both delightful and profound those stories serve to engage child and adult alike with the genius of pure imagination triggered by an awareness of the immediate environment and the animals who coexist with humans in it. By merging today's spoken vernacular with a poetic idiom common to Native American oral discourse and adding her own unique familiarity with both, Rae Ann Kumelos brings that principle onto the printed page triumphantly in this sparkling volume where animal wisdom does indeed emerge. --Paul Zolbrod, author of Diné Bahane': The Navajo Creation Story

Communion shades

$20.00

EVANS LANSING SMITH is Chair and Core Faculty of the Mythological Studies Program at Pacifica. This is his 11th book, but first novel – a coming of age story of a group of young writers living in London and Dublin in the 1970s

 

 This book is the first of a trilogy, entitled Voices From the Well. Each of the three novels focuses on the unfolding dynamic of a sequence of relationships, and the emotional and spiritual growth they catalyze. Set in London, Dublin, Athens, and the East Coast, this first book is a moving portrait of two young poets struggling to find their voices, to recover from family trauma, and to make sense of the creative turmoil of the 1960s.

 

 

Reviews:

  

 I have never read such a precise and competent description of the mind of someone constantly on the verge of a psychotic breakdown. Seth’s poetry elevates his fear of the abyss to the level of art. This is a wonderful contribution to both psychological literature and poetry.

 

 GINETTE PARIS, AUTHOR

The Wisdom of the Psyche, Routledge, 2016

 

 Communion Shades is a tour de force in the bildungsroman genre.

 

 DENNIS PATRICK SLATTERY, CO-AUTHOR

with Charles Asher, of the novel, Simon’s Crossing

 

 Communion Shades is a poetic, lyrical, mythical and magical journey into shades of a past haunted by love, framed by many voices, and enriched by an alchemical weaving of destinies. This novel embeds the reader in the texture of psychic growth that is heartbreakingly rejuvenating: it is an initiation into the survival of youth.

Psychotherapy's Pilgrim Poet: The Story Within

product image
$27.95

Psychotherapy's Pilgrim-Poet: The Story Within imaginatively describes the interior experience of the therapeutic client by utilizing the images of epic literature as an interpretive lens for the psychotherapeutic process. Through the characters, plot, and psychological landscape of The Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer's Odyssey, Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, and Toni Morrison's Beloved, we look anew at the client's motivation to journey, their courage, affects, memories and wounds, the therapeutic bond, the encounter with the unconscious, and the act of story-telling. The author demonstrates that depth psychological work is a soulful pilgrimage characterized by a spiritual and heroic descent to the deep psyche in pursuit of wholeness and the authentic self. Although this book is theoretically informed, it is not intended to provide clinical explanations; rather, it aspires to describe the psychotherapeutic experience from an inside point of view, from the inner life of the client. The primary aim is to renew and deepen an understanding of the client's profoundly difficult and courageous psychological endeavor in depth psychotherapy. This book is a culmination of the author's experiences as researcher, teacher, therapist, enthused reader of epic, and most importantly, as client. It weaves together the author's personal stories with client vignettes, epic literature, depth psychology, mythological studies, and literary criticism.

Unconscious Roots of Creativity

$32.00

From whence spring the sparks of creativity? It is to this very question that the field of depth psychology--especially that of C.G. Jung and his intellectual descendants--has much to contribute.

Just as the Muses were the offspring of Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory, our memories are the ancestors of our creativity that finds its multifaceted expression in the written word, image, theater, dance, and music. The Unconscious Roots of Creativity seeks to push the investigation into that domain of memory that is beyond our conscious reach. With articles from 16 contributors, the "red thread" running through each of the offerings in this volume is that, whatever its ultimate expression, the creative impulse has its roots deep in the psyche.

Edited By Kathryn Madden, Leonard Cruz and Steven Buser with articles by Linda Carter, Anna Maria Costantino, Carol Thayer Cox, Leonard Cruz, Lisa Raye Garlock, James Hollis, Naomi Ruth Lowinsky, Ian Livingston, Kathryn Madden, Jordan S. Potash, Susan Rowland, Murray Stein, Ann Ulanov, Tjeu van den Berk, Robin van Loben Sels, and Heidi S. Volf.

Jung and Sex: Re-Visioning the Treatment of Sexual Issues

$52.95

C. G. Jung, despite not being widely known for his views on sexuality or the treatment of sexual issues, made extensive contributions to understanding the complexities of this field throughout his life. In Jung and Sex, Edward Santana makes the case that reclaiming this knowledge can address substantial problems with current treatments and support many who struggle with sexual issues.

This thorough exploration of Jung s approach to sexual issues presents a wide-ranging new look at his work and adds contemporary perspectives for helping those suffering with sexual difficulties. The book calls for an important bridging of clinical perspectives to address the contemporary challenges of complex sexual issues and brings attention to a large body of Jung s work on human sexuality, ranging from pioneering thoughts on sexual expressions of the soul to understanding ways to treat sexual symptoms. Jung and Sex provides a comprehensive analysis of Jung s views on, and clinical approaches to, sexual issues and treatments, using this knowledge in order to help those with sexual problems and the professionals who support them. It is an essential text for understanding critical dimensions of human sexuality.

Jung and Sex

is an important contribution that closes a gap in the literature of Jungian psychology. It offers unique insights into the subject for Jungian psychotherapists, analytical psychologists, sex therapists, and relationship counselors. The book also supports the work of academics and those interested in contemporary applications of Jungian and post-Jungian studies.

    Exploring Guinevere's Search for Authenticity in the Arthurian Romances: The Thousand-Year Quest of a Mythic Woman

    $19.95

    This work is the most complete study of the Guinevere figure in Western Literature. Its special value focuses on this woman in her own right. Guinevere, or Gwenhwyfar, whose name from the Celtic tradition means phantom, spirit, or faery, is not surprisingly of otherworldly origins. In many myths, however, she loses her otherworldly status and is vilified; in some, she is helpless in ways that accentuate a knight's prowess at protecting her. In the Arthurian romances that are part of our Western tradition and influence, Guinevere, who is both exalted and marginalized, remains in the shadows. This work journeys into Guinevere's world, from early Eastern traditions and medieval times to today's Information Age, and gives her and those whom she influences a voice. The author argues that Guinevere is the anima, the feminine soul who provides the main medium of communication with the deeper aspects of the unconscious and invites soul-making. This work imagines her in an androgynous world that allows her to be her own person.

    "Rich's contribution to scholarship is her study of Guinevere's journey through the Arthurian mythic cycle as an individuation process that leads to the revelation of her hard-to-attain treasure: the totality of her Self." (Prof. Evans Lansing Smith Pacifica Graduate Institute)"

    Remembering Dionysus: Revisioning Psychology and Literature in C.G. Jung and James Hillman

    $52.95

    Dionysus, god of dismemberment and sponsor of the lost or abandoned feminine, originates both Jungian psychology and literature in "Remembering Dionysus. "Characterized by spontaneity, fluid boundaries, sexuality, embodiment, wild nature, ecstasy and chaos, Dionysus is invoked in the writing of C. G. Jung and James Hillman as the dual necessity to adopt and dismiss literature for their archetypal vision of the psyche or soul. Susan Rowland" "describes an emerging paradigm for the twenty-first century enacting the myth of a god torn apart to be re-membered, and remembered as reborn in a great renewal of life.

    Rowland demonstrates how persons, forms of knowing and even eras that dismiss Dionysus are torn apart, and explores how Jung was Dionysian in providing his most dismembered text, "The Red Book. Remembering Dionysus "pursues the rough god into the Sublime in the destruction of meaning in Jung and Jacques Lacan, to a re-membering of sublime feminine creativity that offers "zoe," or rebirth participating in an archetype of instinctual life. This god demands to be honoured inside our knowing and being, just as he (re)joins us to wild nature." "

    This revealing book will be invigorating reading for Jungian analysts, psychotherapists, arts therapists and counsellors, as well as academics and students of analytical psychology, depth psychology, Jungian and post-Jungian studies, literary studies and ecological humanities.

    Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump

    $16.95

    PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS A NEWER EDITION OF THIS BOOK RELEASED IN 2017 WITH A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TITLE: "A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of PRESIDENT Trump."

    Narcissism is epidemic and there is scarcely a domain that is immune to its effects. A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump brings together bestselling authors, university professors, and practicing clinicians to explore this vital topic. "Every country has the government it deserves," said Alexis de Tocqueville, author of Democracy in America. Whatever history eventually records about the 2016 presidential election, this frank and thoughtful exploration of narcissism will prove to be a timely and timeless study.

    Narcissism demands to be mirrored and refuses to be challenged. It demands acclaim, obedience, and accommodation, while disregarding others. Whether narcissism overtakes the home, the workplace, or the national stage, everyone who comes under Narcissus's spell, both the narcissist and their subjects, suffer.

    Pundits insist that politics has seldom been as polarized as it became during the 2016 election in the United States. This was a coincidence of opposites, a coincidentia oppositorum. While Donald Trump galvanized vast numbers of angry, disaffected voters, Senator Bernie Sanders mobilized enormous crowds of young voters who seemed passionately committed to revolutionizing American politics. Regardless of the winner of the contest between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, it is vital to recognize what is happening on this global stage of politics. A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump explores the phenomenon of Trump as well as the vast landscape of narcissism in general.

    The contributors share a hope that these essays will become a mirror for the reader and for a nation called to examine itself. Dr. EstEs reminds us in the closing pages, "We were made for times like these."
