Gods in Our Midst: Mythological Images of the Masculine - A Woman's View

$20.00

"Let no one of the gods vanish. We need each and every one, every one should matter to us, every perfected image." No writer of her generation has taken Rilke's words as thoroughly to heart as Christine Downing has. In a remarkable series of books she has given us "perfected" as well as ambivalent images of the great goddesses of classical antiquity. In this book she turns to the "gods in our midst," the gods as they appear to women, and she shows how these energies and epiphanies embodied in male egos are relevant to women' s "inner experience, their most profound needs and hopes, their bitterest suffering and greatest fear." Whether as counter-players or ego-figures, figures to whom women relate or with whom they may even identify, the Greek gods embody ways of being, worlds which enter into the experience of both men and women. They "help us to see who we are and what we might become."

The male gods described here are, to a certain extent, fictions, fantasies, created out of bits and pieces of the ancient traditions woven together in ways that the Greeks never had. But the Greek gods were always in via, on the way, still in process. And what Downing's Greek gods are helping us proceed toward is a post-patriarchal image of male wholeness, a woman's view of what men might be like.

An exploration of the gods of classical antiquity as they appear to women today, this work shows how the energies and epiphanies associated with them embody particular ways of being in the world and are relevant to women's inner experience. The male gods

Father's Daughters: Breaking the Ties That Bind

$20.00

The most complex and unexplored relationship in a woman's life is with her father. If their bond is close, she is referred to as "Daddy's little girl." As cute as that may sound in childhood, a "father's daughter" later pays a high price for her favored status. In order to sustain his approval, protection, and love, she often distances herself from her mother and rejects her own feminine nature. By identifying solely with her father, her development as a woman is arrested in daughterhood.
In this unique and fascinating look at a pervasive personal and cultural issue, family therapist Maureen Murdock at last reveals the unspoken truth about daughters and the immense power the fathers they idealize have over them. Fathers' Daughters explores how these exclusive relationships affect every aspect of a woman's life. While fathers' daughters are often high achievers in the outside world, their denial of their innate feminine nature wreaks havoc on other aspects of their lives--from fearing commitment to recklessly choosing a mate, among a host of other personal and professional problems.
With revealing case studies and an exploration of the hidden truth in myths, dreams, and fairy tales, Fathers' Daughters makes clear that the rewards for healing the father-daughter relationship are great--as a woman will learn to take herself seriously, reclaim the authority she projects onto men, and establish a healthy, balanced sense of herself as a woman.
"Murdock offers a rich and thoughtful analysis forged in the fires of her own suffering and growth. The urgent need to discover deeper feminine values and to challenge the rigid and possessive qualities of patriarchy belongs to the psychologyof all of us."
--Suzanne Wagner, Ph.D.
Jungian Analyst
Producer of "A Matter of Heart"
"A moving exploration of the feminine journey from father's daughter to peer. Murdock guides us through uncharted territory to find, within the shadow of our fathers' influence, a female vision that is powerful and nurturing. Groundbreaking and dynamic, Fathers' Daughters invites us not only to heal the father-daughter wounds, but also to build our own distinctly feminine futures."

Soul in Anguish: Psychotherapeutic Approaches to Suffering

$27.00

The Soul in Anguish: Psychotherapeutic Approaches to Suffering presents a variety of approaches to psychotherapeutic work with suffering people, from the perspectives of both Jungian and psychoanalytic psychology. An important theme of the book is that suffering may be harmful or helpful to the development of the personality. Our culture tends to assume that suffering is invariably negative or pointless, but this is not necessarily so; suffering may be destructive, but it may lead to positive developments such as enhanced empathy for others, wisdom, or spiritual development. The book offers professionals in any helping profession various frameworks within which to view suffering, so that the individual's suffering does not seem to be random or meaningless. Cognitive-behavioral approaches, the approach of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric association, and the promise of evidence-based strategies may or may not be applicable to the unique circumstances of the suffering individual. These approaches also ignore the unconscious sources of much suffering, its implications for the ongoing development of the personality, and the nuances of the therapeutic relationship. We cannot objectify or measure suffering; suffering is best viewed from within the individual's perspective, because people with the same diagnosis suffer in unique ways.

The Soul in Anguish is a groundbreaking, meticulously researched study from an outstanding Jungian analyst and scholar. It provides illuminating ways into the transformative potential of suffering and how it can be dealt with in the consulting room. Charting the soul's agonies with great compassion and profound sensitivity, Dr. Corbett skillfully delineates clinical, philosophical and spiritual concepts of suffering that testify to the endurance of the human spirit. This book is an enlightening read for anybody with a passionate concern for the human soul.
- Ursula Wirtz, PhD, Jungian Analyst, Author of Trauma and Beyond: The Mystery of Transformation

With extraordinary candor The Soul in Anguish brings its readers face to face with one of the most difficult topics in life, suffering. This remarkable exploration of the range of suffering, especially as encountered in psychotherapy, mines for meaning and finds both its positive and negative expressions. Transcending the categorical, pathological descriptions of the DSM, The Soul in Anguish reveals the archetypal nature of the experience of suffering. Dr. Lionel Corbett offers healing to mind, soul and body, in this uplifting engagement with what is usually either avoided in most treatments or only touched upon, i.e., anguish. This book reimagines our pain and anguish to bring about the possibility of a true psychological and soulful grasp of suffering. No therapist should miss the opportunities of Dr. Corbett's rich study.
- Joe Cambray, Ph.D.,Past-President IAAP,Author

Body Keeps the Score Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

$18.00

 A New York Times Science Bestseller 

“Packed with science and human stories, the book is an intense read. . . . The struggle and resilience of [van der Kolk’s] patients is very moving.” —New Scientist


A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing

 
Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

Golden Ass of Apuleius: The Liberation of the Feminine in Man

$26.00

Today there is much discussion of the liberation of women, writes Marie-Louise von Franz, "but it is sometimes overlooked that this can only succeed if there is a change in men as well. Just as women have to overcome the patriarchal tyrant in their own souls, men have to liberate and differentiate their inner femininity. Only then will a better relationship of the sexes be possible" It is this timely theme that Dr. von Franz explores in her psychological study of a classic work of the second century, The Golden Assby Apuleius of Madaura. The novel recounts the adventures of a young Roman who is transformed into an ass and eventually finds spiritual renewal through initiation into the Isis mysteries. With its many tales within a tale (including the celebrated story of Psyche and Eros), the text as interpreted by Dr. von Franz is a rich source of insights, anecdotes, and scholarly amplification.

Exploring Guinevere's Search For Authenticity in the Arthurian Romances (hardcover)

$34.95

Rich discusses Guinevere as a mythical character who embodies a set of mythical traditions that span several centuries. Often depicted differently her legacy has yet to be fully recognized because she is overshadowed by Arthur. This book seeks to correct that problem and fill in a gap in the scholarship by providing an extensive study of the ways she has been represented from medieval times until today. Rich draws on notable scholarship like C.G. Jung's individuation process, and Joseph Campbell's hero journey, as she strives to uncover an authentic account of Guinevere's story. This work explores her struggles, honors her otherworldly origins, and imagines her in an androgynous world that allows her to be her own person, marry for love, care for the earth, and tend to soul; not one into which she tries to fit, but one that she helps to shape.

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)"

WRITINGS FOR A LIBERATION PSYCHOLOGY

$29.00

"In your country," Ignacio MartIn-BarO remarked to a North American colleague, "it's publish or perish. In ours, it's publish and perish." In November 1989 a Salvadoran death squad extinguished his eloquent voice, raised so often and so passionately against oppression in his adopted country. A Spanish-born Jesuit priest trained in psychology at the University of Chicago, MartIn-BarO devoted much of his career to making psychology speak to the community as well as to the individual. This collection of his writings, the first in English translation, clarifies MartIn-BarO's importance in Latin American psychology and reveals a major force in the field of social theory.

Gathering essays from an array of professional journals, this volume introduces readers to the questions and concerns that shaped MartIn-BarO's thinking over several decades: the psychological dimensions of political repression, the impact of violence and trauma on child development and mental health, the use of psychology for political ends, religion as a tool of ideology, and defining the "real" and the "normal" under conditions of state-sponsored violence and oppression, among others. Though grounded in the harsh realities of civil conflict in Central America, these essays have broad relevance in a world where political and social turmoil determines the conditions of daily life for so many. In them we encounter MartIn-BarO's humane, impassioned voice, reaffirming the essential connections among mental health, human rights, and the struggle against injustice. His analysis of contemporary social problems, and of the failure of the social sciences to address those problems, permits us to understand not only the substance of his contribution to social thought but also his lifelong commitment to the campesinos of El Salvador.
