Mujeres Que Corren Con los Lobos

$28.95

Dentro de toda mujer alienta una vida secreta, una fuerza poderosa llena de buenos instintos, creatividad apasionada y sabiduria eterna. Es la Mujer Salvaje, una especie en peligro de extincion que representa la esencia femenina instintiva. Aunque los regalos de la naturaleza les pertenecen desde siempre, los constantes esfuerzos de la sociedad por ""civilizar"" a las mujeres han ocultado los dones que estas albergan en su interior. En este libro, Clarissa Pinkola Estes revela ricos mitos interculturales, cuentos de hadas e historias -muchas de ellas relativas a su propia familia- para ayudar a las mujeres a recuperar su fuerza y volver a conectar con su verdadera esencia. Pinkola Estes ha creado una psicologia femenina en su sentido mas autentico, el que lleva al conocimiento del alma. Mujeres que corren con los lobos es, asimismo, un fascinante mosaico de historias que, ademas de resultar sumamente entretenido, nos ofrece una nueva vision de lo femenino y de sus posibilidades. ""Una celebracion del alma femenina."" The Washington Post / Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. For though the gifts of wildish nature belong to us at birth, society's attempt to ""civilize"" us into rigid roles has muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls. In Women Who Run With the Wolves, Dr. Estes unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine. Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.

Receiving Woman

$24.00

We live in a time of unparalleled opportunity for women and a time, just because of that opportunity, of great stress. It is a time when every woman can find her own particular style, to develop her skills, to acknowledge her needs and failures, and to claim both her satisfactions and dissatisfactions. The old stereotypes are all but dead. But another danger threatens; of new stereotyped roles for women in the very range of choices and opportunities presented to the "RECEIVING WOMAN grew out of a decade of reflections on women's experiences - my own, my patients', and my students'," writes Professor Ulanov. "From all of them, a common voice emerged speaking about each woman's struggle to receive all of herself. Each was trying to find and put together different parts of herself into a whole that was personal, alive, and real to her and to others.

The Female Ancestors of Christ

$22.00

The spiritual power of the Feminine shines forth in this psychological study of four Old Testament heroines from Jesus' family tree. Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba are the only women mentioned by name in the Gospels' genealogies and, for Ann Belford Ulanov, this indicates that they impart something essential to the lineage of Christ. By exploring their brave and unconventional lives, she demonstrates how salvation enters the world in the feminine mode of being human, through these women's embodiment of such powerful and deeply feminine qualities as ingenuity, audacity, determination, compassion, seduction, and devotion.

Moving Toward the Millionth Circle Energizing the Global Women's Movement

$18.95

In Jungian analyst and activist Jean Shinoda Bolen's writing, symbol, archetype, soul work, and synchronicity come together with activism and the potential to change the world or save the planet when grassroots and enlightened leaders work together. In her latest book, Moving Toward the Millionth Circle, Dr. Bolen inspires and enlists women to be millionth circle, heart-centered activists in order to energize a 5th World Conference on Women in the 21st Century. The conference is not a goal in and of itself, but a means toward valuing women and the feminine to bring about a tipping point.

Moving Toward the Millionth Circle is a sequel to Dr. Bolen's popular The Millionth Circle (1999) with a slightly different focus. Her first book describes how real change happens when a critical number of people adopt a new perspective with how-to sections on ways to create women's circles with a sacred center. While still about women's circles, her new book focuses more on activism and how these circles can help to sustain and support (and be a sanctuary for) women working for change in their lives and in the world.

Social Awareness in Counselling: A Critique of Mainstream Counselling From A Feminist Counselling, Cross-Cultural Counselling, And Liberation Psychology Perspective

$11.95

"Social Awareness in Counselling" is a critique of mainstream Counselling from three alternative therapeutic orientations: feminist Counselling, cross-cultural Counselling, and liberation psychology. It explores the many areas in which mainstream Counselling focuses exclusively on the individual while failing to explore wider social issues that often greatly influence our values, behaviors and experiences. Issues such as gender, class, sexual orientation, culture and ethnicity are rarely considered. The social and personal oppression that cultural stereotypes engender remain largely unacknowledged in mainstream Counselling.

'"'Social Awareness in Counselling" unearths Counselling research in both mainstream and alternative Counselling orientations. The feminist Counselling model addresses such issues as gender, race and class, and also emphasises the need for awareness of power issues within the Counselling relationship. Cross-cultural Counselling models state that Counselling is largely based on western beliefs and values that are alien to culturally-different clients. The theories of liberation psychology stress the importance of facing the political, social and economic roots of oppression that limit personal freedom and choice.

Social Awareness in Counselling" is an invaluable guide for counsellors, course directors, and prospective clients. It clearly states the pitfalls of Counselling while pointing the way forward towards a more egalitarian and socially aware therapeutic relationship.

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."

The Language of the Goddess

$27.50

"The first authoritative work on the ancient goddess culture."—Boston Globe

The Goddess is the most potent and persistent feature in the archaeological records of the ancient world, a symbol of the unity of life in nature and the personification of all that was sacred and mysterious on earth.

In this pioneering and provocative volume, Marija Gimbutas resurrects the world of the Goddess-worshipping, earth-centered cultures, bringing ancient matriarchal society vividly to life. She interweaves comparative mythology, early historical sources, linguistics, ethnography, and folklore to demonstrate conclusively that Goddess-worship is at the root of Western civilization. Illustrated with nearly 2,000 symbolic artifacts, Gimbutas' magnum opus is at once a "pictorial script" of the prehistoric Goddess religion and an authoritative work that takes these ancient cultures from the realm of speculation into that of documented fact. Over 500 illustrations.

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.

The Cat: A Tale of Feminine Redemption

$25.00

From the author's Preface: Nowadays fairy tales are studied from many angles, not least in terms of depth psychology, which is the standpoint of this book. It is intended to teach how to recognize archetypal material and how to handle it from the point of view of Jungian psychology. -- Marie-Louise von Franz

"The Cat" is a Romanian fairy tale of some complexity and great charm. It is the story of a princess who at the age of 17 is bewitched - turned into a cat. She must remain in that form until an emperor's son will come and cut off her head... Eventually a simple-minded emperor's son, searching the earth for fine linen, finds her and accomplishes the task. How and why this happens is patiently dissected by Dr. von Franz with her characteristic erudition and earthy humor.

One by one she unravels the symbolic threads in this story, from enchantment to beating, the ringing of bells, golden apples, somersaults and witches, etc., and, throughout, the great themes of redemption and the union of opposites, always relating them to both individual and collective psychology.

Originally a lecture series presented at the Jung Institute in Zürich, this is von Franz at her very best, theoretically lucid, sharply insightful and always grounded in lived experience.

The Cat is a Romanian fairy story, which tells of a princess turned into a cat. She must remain in this form until an emperor's son arrives to behead her, which one such man accordingly does. The author uses Jungian psychological analysis methods to interpret the symbolism of the tale.

Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames (DVD)

$24.95

Powerful, insightful, provocative, Marion Woodman: Dancing in the Flames explores the inspiring life and many ‘deaths’ of one of the western world’s most important wisdom keepers, and sends a clarion call to a planet in the midst of “a shedding of its outworn skin”.

With insight from our guide, the brilliant mystic and author Andrew Harvey, Marion explores the mysteries of her soul’s journey and reveals a series of psychological ‘deaths’ and ‘rebirths’ that have made her who she is today. From her battle with anorexia, to her revelatory experiences in India, to her ever-evolving marriage, to her dance with cancer, Marion has ‘died into life’ and thus is a perfect teacher and mid-wife for this critical period in our history. 

 

Through the use of stunning animation from Academy Award winning artist Faith Hubley, filmmaker Adam Greydon Reid seamlessly weaves Marion’s inner and outer lives together and transmits a core truth of what it is to be human.

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)"

Goddesses in Everywoman: Thirtieth Anniversary Edition: Powerful Archetypes in Women's Lives

product image
$15.99

Jean Shinoda Bolen's celebrated work of female psychology that uses seven archetypical goddesses to describing behavior patterns and personality traits, as relevant and timeless today as when it was first published thirty years ago.

Myths are fascinating stories that become even more intriguing when we realize that they can reveal intimate truths about ourselves and others. Jean Shinoda Bolen brings the Greek pantheon to life as our inner archetypes and applies the power of myth to our personal lives. Once we understand the natural progression from myth to archetype to personal psychology, and realize that positive gifts and negative tendencies are qualities associated with a particular goddess within, we gain powerful insights.

Depending on which goddess is more active within, one woman might be more committed to achieving professional success, while another more fulfilled as a wife and mother. From the autonomous Artemis and the cool Athena to the nurturing Demeter and the creative Aphrodite, she teaches women how to decide which to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes to become a better "heroine" in their own life story.

Writing a Woman's Life

$13.95

"A provocative study that should be in every writer's library."—Washington Post

In this modern classic, Carolyn G. Heilbrun builds an eloquent argument demonstrating that writers conform all too often to society's expectations of what women should be like at the expense of the truth of the female experience. Drawing on the careers of celebrated authors including Virginia Woolf, George Sand, and Dorothy Sayers, Heilbrun illustrates the struggle these writers undertook in both work and life to break away from traditional "male" scripts for women's roles.
