Our Daily Breach: Exploring Your Personal Myth Through Herman Melville’s Moby-Dickoffers both a way of understanding what has generally been called the greatest novel of the American myth while simultaneously exploring one’s own personal myth. Its added feature is that it is an interactive book in allowing reader’s to meditate on one question per page for each day of the year and to undercover many facets of one’s personal myth through cursive writing. It has been long understood that classics of literature are their own form of therapy in that they frequently tap into some of the most shared concerns of being human. This book makes such a connection between our interior life and the plot of the story through the power of mythopoiesis, namely the imaginative act of giving a formative shape to the myth we are each living in and out through the power of analogy, correspondence or accord with the classic poem. Using Melville’s epic of America, the reader may enter the deepest seas of his/her own mythic waters to realize and give language to the myth that resides in our daily plot line.

The twenty chapters in this volume are divided into Formal Essays and Cultural Essays. Both, however, explore in varying degrees the place of consilience between literature, mythology and depth psychology. The essays seek that place of analogy, or correspondence and of accord between the three bridges, the three disciplines mentioned in its subtitle. Together they amplify and extend what might best be called a psycho-poetics of myth, where mythology is understood as the mucilage or glue that holds psyche and poiesis together in one form and shape. The intention in all the essays is to invite the reader into the discussion with his/her personal myth resonating with the ideas and images present and to remember and reimagine one's own narrative through the corridors of those presented in the volume. Bridge Work then carries two meanings: it wishes to span disciplines in order to increase one's range of awareness and it wishes to create a third thing, the bridge itself, as a medium of and for expressing new insights. The hope is that the reader will come away from these twenty expressions of the relational nature of literature to psychology and mythology with a renewed sense of how interdisciplinary studies can reveal other ways of knowing not afforded the specialist inhabiting one field of thought.

The disturbing experience of psychological infanticide reflects the darkest aspect of the wounding of the Sacred Feminine - the Death Mother archetype that annihilates rather than nurtures life. Through myth, story, classic literature, biography, poems, art and dreams, Dr. Violet Sherwood weaves together symbolic aspects of psychological infanticide with psychoanalytic theory of traumatic attachment and the literal truth of a centuries-old history of infanticide. She illuminates the Death Mother archetype in the dynamic between the unwilling (or unsupported) mother and the unwelcome child. Her personal and archetypal journey into, through, and beyond the underworld, offers hope and guidance for the restoration of the relationship between the Sacred Feminine and the Divine Child. She draws on her professional experience as a psychotherapist and her lived experience of psychological infanticide as a result of closed stranger adoption to explore the intimate connection between life and death, revealing the life task of the infanticided psyche is to embrace death and discover the life that lies beyond the realm of the underworld.

Dionysus, god of dismemberment and sponsor of the lost or abandoned feminine, originates both Jungian psychology and literature in Remembering Dionysus. Characterized by spontaneity, fluid boundaries, sexuality, embodiment, wild nature, ecstasy and chaos, Dionysus is invoked in the writing of C. G. Jung and James Hillman as the dual necessity to adopt and dismiss literature for their archetypal vision of the psyche or soul. Susan Rowland describes an emerging paradigm for the twenty-first century enacting the myth of a god torn apart to be re-membered, and remembered as reborn in a great renewal of life. Rowland demonstrates how persons, forms of knowing and even eras that dismiss Dionysus are torn apart, and explores how Jung was Dionysian in providing his most dismembered text, The Red Book. Remembering Dionysus pursues the rough god into the Sublime in the destruction of meaning in Jung and Jacques Lacan, to a re-membering of sublime feminine creativity that offers zoe, or rebirth participating in an archetype of instinctual life. This god demands to be honoured inside our knowing and being, just as he (re)joins us to wild nature. This revealing book will be invigorating reading for Jungian analysts, psychotherapists, arts therapists and counsellors, as well as academics and students of analytical psychology, depth psychology, Jungian and post-Jungian studies, literary studies and ecological humanities.

Learn to get the most out of therapy to unlock your best self. Learn to get the most out of therapy to unlock your best self. Millions of Americans will go to therapy this year, but veteran psychotherapist Gary Trosclair believes the vast majority of them will start the process with little to no sense of how to best use their sessions to achieve their goals. Recent research has identified effective client participation as one of the most crucial factors in successful therapy. What can one do to get the most out of their sessions to create lasting positive changes in their lives? What does it look like to “work on it” in therapy? Trosclair covers these points and more, combining cutting-edge scientific research with years of fascinating anecdotal evidence to create a guide that is as compelling as it is indispensable. It teaches readers how to take off their masks and be real with their therapists, how to deal with emotions that arise in session, how to continue their psychological work outside of sessions, how to know when it’s time to say goodbye to their therapists, and much more. Whether you’re already in therapy and looking to make more out of each appointment, or you’re thinking of starting the process and want to go in with a game plan, I’m Working on It in Therapy will show you how you can make every session count towards becoming your best possible self.

Living Myth explores the dilemma of how to live life creatively at a time when the dominant myths of our culture are losing their power to give meaning to our lives. Using C. G. Jung's idea of discovering a "personal myth," D. Stephenson Bond reflects on the psychology of mythic imagination, as a force in both culture and individual life. He argues that meaning is experienced subjectively through the stirring of imagination and fantasy in the individual, which touches the larger impersonal, archetypal patterns. The book offers hopeful insights into the possibilities of cultural renewal and individual meaning through the restoration of the imagination.

In his 30th published volume, The Way of Myth: Stories' Subtle Wisdom, Dennis Patrick Slattery reaches back in "Part I: Mining the Myths Anew," to some earlier essays on classic films and works of literature. He also includes extended meditations on the thought of mythologist Joseph Campbell; on creativity's hungers; on beliefs as mythic constructs; and on the joys of painting. Many of the essays explore the act of reading and the importance of stories as they relate to one's personal myth. In "Part II: The Social Fabric of Stories," Slattery includes a series of 19 short op-ed essays on a range of topics: the classroom as sacred space; uncertainty; the fact of myth; compassion; moral injury; peace; the gifts of conversation; gall-bladder surgery; the 'pan'-demic; and the poetics of myth, among others. Reflections on several of Joseph Campbell's volumes are also included in this section. The author's reflective interests are trans-disciplinary, analogical and depth-psychological. These essays stretch out over many years of writing. Now, in this volume they are gathered so they can speak and engage one another to reveal the subtle wisdom of stories. "In The Way of Myth, the culminating book of the prolific Dennis Patrick Slattery's career, I find an abundance of wonder and a plenitude of what the poet-astronomer Rebecca Elson called our 'responsibility to awe.' For him, mythology is everywhere if only we develop "the mythic slant," the ability to see its wild wisdom all around us. What vitalizes his writing is how he encourages the reader to venture beyond theory to experience one of the least appreciated aspects of mythology-the sheer joy that can come from identifying with its characters-to the point where we no longer feel alone in our own struggles. The sheer range here of essays, poems, reminiscences, reviews and retellings underscores Slattery's ardent belief that mythmaking is one of the constants in cultures throughout history. I especially value his uncanny

This collection of essays, written over a period of years, entertains the shared place of psyche and poetics. Dr. Slattery has explored the manner in which the psyche is poetic and how poetry is deeply psycho-mythical. Influenced in part by the archetypal psychologist James Hillman's idea of the "poetic basis of mind" that comprises the soul's foundation, Slattery's writing moves into the interactive field in which myth is the ground for both psyche and poetry. The essays develop a further understanding of what has been called mythopoiesis, the fundamental myth-making and shaping capacity of the soul.

The Archetypal Pan in America examines the complex moral and ethical dilemmas that Americans have had to face over the last few decades, including the motivations for the Vietnam War; who was in control of women’s productive rights; how to extend civil rights to all; protests for the historically unapologetic narrative of the genocide of Native Americans; and the growing number of school shootings since the Columbine massacre. Fontelieu suggests that the emotional pain these issues created has not resolved and that it continues to surface, in the guise of new issues, but with a similar dysfunctional pattern. The book argues that this pattern acts in the culture in the same manner as a psychological defense system: stimulating fight, flight, or freeze reactions; requiring great stores of energy when activated; and deflecting attention from other areas. Relying on Jung’s theory of the applicability of myth to psychological problems and the post-Jungian theory of cultural complexes, the myths of the Greek god Pan are used to scaffold a metaphor that informs this pattern. Fontelieu proposes that, rather than looking inward as a culture for how to accept its changing role in a global world, this pattern reinforces dysfunctional emotional responses to the reoccurring traumas of modernity, responses such as an increase in the magnetic appeal of hypermasculinity, or choosing to remain naively self-absorbed. The Archetypal Pan in America will be of great interest to Jungian analysts and scholars of depth psychology, as well as academics and postgraduate students studying psychology, foreign studies, literary criticism, politics and cultural studies.
