Gods in Everyman: Archetypes That Shape Men's Lives 25th Edition

$15.99

The companion volume to Goddesses in Everywoman reveals the powerful inner patterns, or archetypes, that shape men’s personalities, careers, and personal relationships—offering a insights into Greek mythology, Jungian archetypal psychology, and into themselves and the people in their lives.

A Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen introduces our inner patterns in the guise of eight archetypal gods. From the authoritarian, power-seeking gods (Zeus, Poseidon) to the gods of creativity (Apollo, Hephaestus) to the sensual Dionysis, Dr. Bolen shows men how to identify their ruling gods, how to decide which to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes in order to enrich and strengthen their lives. She stresses the importance of understanding which gods you are attracted to and which are incompatible with your expectations, uncovers the origins of the often-difficult father-son relationship, and explores society’s deep conflict between nurturing behavior and the need to foster masculinity.

In Gods in Everyman, Dr. Bolen presents us with a compassionate and lucid male psychology that will help all men and women to better understand themselves and their relationships with their fathers, their sons, their brothers and their lovers.

Remaking Men: Jung, Spirituality and Social Change

$45.95

The nature of masculinity is a popular subject for contemporary authors, either treated critically from a sociological standpoint, or analysed from a psychological and spiritual perspective.
In Remaking Men, David Tacey argues that we must strive to bridge the gap between these separate traditions - masculinity should neither be hijacked by the spiritual, Jung-influenced men's movement, nor discussed merely as a product of socio-political forces.
Examining his own and other men's experience in a critical and lively discourse he evades the simplistic optimism of the 'inner journey' approach and the chronic pessimism of contemporary academic arguments. This is a fascinating and very accessible look at masculinity for those who want to explore self and society with intelligence and soul.

Phallos: Sacred Image of the Masculine

$25.00

Through close examination of the physical, psychological and mythological aspects of phallos, the author differentiates masculinity from patriarchy and discovers a mysterious, divine reality coequal with the maternal principle as an originating force in the psyche.

In this 141 page book, the author looks at the old patriarchal values regarding men and discusses how the essential characteristics of the masculine must be differentiated from the entrenched attitudes of the patriarchy. This book "is concerned with the archetypal basis of masculinity. Through close examination of the physical, mythological and psychological manifestations of phallos, the author discovers an autonomous inner god, coequal with the maternal principle as an originating force in the psyche. Phallos emerges here as an essentially mysterious divine reality that is at once practical and numinous, object of fascination and religious devotion for both men and women - a signature of personal identity for half the human race."

In Quest of the Hero

$19.95



In Quest of the Hero makes available for a new generation of readers two key works on hero myths: Otto Rank's Myth of the Birth of the Hero and the central section of Lord Raglan's The Hero. Amplifying these is Alan Dundes's fascinating contemporary inquiry, "The Hero Pattern and the Life of Jesus." Examined here are the patterns found in the lore surrounding historical or legendary figures like Gilgamesh, Moses, David, Oedipus, Odysseus, Perseus, Heracles, Aeneas, Romulus, Siegfried, Lohengrin, Arthur, and Buddha.


Rank's monograph remains the classic application of Freudian theory to hero myths. In The Hero the noted English ethnologist Raglan singles out the myth-ritualist pattern in James Frazer's many-sided Golden Bough and applies that pattern to hero myths. Dundes, the eminent folklorist at the University of California at Berkeley, applies the theories of Rank, Raglan, and others to the case of Jesus. In his introduction to this selection from Rank, Raglan, and Dundes, Robert Segal, author of the major study of Joseph Campbell, charts the history of theorizing about hero myths and compares the approaches of Rank, Raglan, Dundes, and Campbell.

$16.95

It is no secret that men are in trouble today. From war to ecological collapse, most of the world s critical problems stem from a distorted masculinity out of control. Yet our culture rewards the very dysfunctions responsible for those problems. To Matthew Fox, our crucial task is to open our minds to a deeper understanding of the healthy masculine than we receive from our media, culture, and religions. To awaken what Fox calls the sacred masculine, he unearths ten metaphors, or archetypes, to inspire men to pursue their higher calling to reinvent the world."

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

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.
