Chapter V: Rediscovery of The Feminine

Excerpt:

In a culture where the symbolic world tends to be forgotten, the woman who orientates her life around food is particularly vulnerable to obesity. Her gnawing spiritual emptiness she will vainly attempt to fill with the concrete form of the symbol. The gnawing will grow into a constant anxiety. In “The Symbolic Life,” Jung wrote:

Only the symbolic life can express the need of the soul – the daily need of the soul, mind you! And because people have no such thing, they can never step out of this mill – this awful, grinding, banal life in which they are “nothing but.” In the ritual they are near the Godhead; they are even divine.” (98-99)

Dancing in the Flames: The Dark Goddess in the Transformation of Consciousness

$19.95

Dark, earthy, and immensely powerful, the Black Goddess has been a key force in world history, manifesting in images as diverse as the Indian goddess Kali and the Black Madonnas of medieval Europe. She embodies the energy of chaos and creativity, creation and destruction, death and rebirth. Images of Her, however, have been conspicuously missing in the Western world for centuries—until now, when awareness of the Goddess is re-arising in many spheres, from the women's movement to traditional religion, from the new discoveries of quantum physics to the dreams of ordinary men and women. Why now particularly? The answer provided by Marion Woodman and Elinor Dickson is bold and thrilling: the reemergence of the Divine Feminine in our time indicates our readiness to move to an entirely new level of consciousness. The reemerging Goddess calls for a shattering of rigid categories, a willingness to hold opposition. She calls us to marry reason and order to creativity, and to embrace the chaos that can ultimately lead to wisdom and transformation on personal and global levels.

Virgin and Puer: Confronting the Feminine Together (Conference Recording CD)

$50.00

This workshop was held February 10, 2007 in Santa Barbara, California. Set includes 5 CDs.

Both men and women are face to face with an inner feminine that is shifting our understanding of relationship. These shifts can be both threatening and rewarding. When we are attempting to live our own integrity, how do we relate to our partners facing a similar shift? How do we open new ground for the shadow that is bound to appear.  When the Puer moves into his patriarchal shadow, how does the Virgin deal with her silenced shadow?  When this happens, do we remain true to the relationship and/or true to oneself and our own integrity? In this lecture, we will discuss creative approaches that open new doors to the relationship between masculinity and femininity.

The Crown of Age (CD)

$19.95

2 CDs (2 hours, 30 minutes)

On The Crown of Age, Jungian analyst Marion Woodman examines what it means to pass through life's many "crossroads and thresholds," emerging as an elder, the embodiment of wisdom, wholeness, and truth. Mining the riches of her own life, including her battle with cancer, Woodman illustrates the paradox of growing old: that while our physical strength wanes, our spiritual strength "blossoms, petal by petal." With poetic insight she describes the archetypal passage in a woman's life from mother to virgin to crone, and the preparation of our souls for the great crown we receive only at the end of life. The Crown of Age is a profound offering of wisdom that refl ects Marion Woodman's long and celebrated career as a writer, teacher, analyst, and now, trusted elder.

Bone: Dying Into Life

$16.00

On November 7, 1993, Marion Woodman was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Here, in journal form, is the story of her illness, her healing process, and her acceptance of life and death. Breathtakingly honest about the factors she feels contributed to her cancer, Woodman also explains how she drew upon every resource-physical and spiritual-available to her to come to terms with her illness. Dreams and imagery, self-reflection and body work, and both traditional and alternative medicine play distinctive roles in Woodman's recovery. Her personal treasury of art, photographs, and quotations-from Dickinson to Blake to Rumi-embellish this unique chronicle of a very personal journey toward transformation.
