As we speed towards the next millennium, many of us are taking stock of the presences and absences in our lives. In Dancing in the Flames, Marion Woodman, along with reputed therapist Elinor Dickson, points to the gaping hole in our spiritual fabric. Unlike other cultures and eras, modern Western society has repressed notions of the Divine Feminine, possibly to the detriment of our psyches, our bodies, and even our planet. This landmark book, which draws from art, fables, science and dreams, creates a vista from which to view our imbalances and provides hope for celebration as we turn to embrace a lost aspect of ourselves. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Women's intuition is real, says Paula Reeves. Encoded in a woman's DNA, this subtle yet potent source of knowledge has been doubted and dismissed as an old wives' tale. Because social conditioning and male-dominated culture have caused women to feel disconnected from their own bodies, Dr. Reeves believes that most women are unaware of what their intuition is trying to tell them. In Women's Intuition, Dr. Reeves guides readers to remove the blocks preventing this channel of knowledge from informing and enriching their daily lives. By evoking body-based intuition, readers can reestablish their body-mind bond and access their intuitive power for healing and insight.

"In this thought-provoking and sensitive book, a noted Jungian scholar explores the deepest elements in the American psyche that need healing to bring forth the best in both of the worlds we walk in: the highly differentiated and technologically developed Western civilization and the indigenous native "soul" that is the essence of each human being. The author demonstrates that this soul is forcefully represented in America in the experience of the Native American peoples and their relationship to the land and to the ancient "indigenous one" at the heart of our human origins."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Winner of the 2004 Gradiva Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. The issue of shame has become a central topic for many writers and therapists in recent years, but it is debatable how much real understanding of this powerful and pervasive emotion we have achieved. Mother-Infant Attachment and Psychoanalysis argues that shame can develop during the first six months of life through an unreflected look in the mother's eyes, and that this shame is then internalised by the infant and reverberates through its later life. The author further expands on this concept of the look through a powerful and extensive study of the concept of the Evil Eye, an enduring universal belief that eyes have the power to inflict injury. Finally, she presents ways of healing shame within a clinical setting, and provides a fascinating analysis of the role of eye-contact in the therapeutic encounter. This book brings together a unique blend of theoretical interpretations of shame with clinical studies, and integrates major concepts from psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, developmental psychology and anthropology. The result is a broad understanding of shame and a real understanding of why it may underlie a wide range of clinical disorders.
