Healing the wounded feminine in women, in men, and in our culture.
Within each of us, there is a deep, powerful source for living lives of love, creativity, and fulfillment.
To imagine this foundation for life and the energy it produces is to imagine ourselves and our world filled with the influence of the archetypal feminine - her passionate creativity, love, and ageless knowing. Personally and culturally, this force - which lives at the heart of our lives - has been wounded and diminished until it seems to have retreated beyond the horizon of a world filled with rationalism and an anxious, endless need for achievement.
This is a powerfully moving book that goes beyond gender roles into the soul of the archetypal feminine, exploring how it has been damaged and traumatized. Through the myth of Medusa, the authors create an inspirational guide for healing, revitalizing, loving, and nurturing the archetypal feminine as we awaken our own voices and transform our fate.
