Product Description

Review

'Two conferences initiated by the Sophia Centre at Bath Spa University last year resulted in the publication of Sky and Psyche...in which astrologers and others reflect on the relationship between the human soul and the stars. Their intention was 'not to come up with conclusions but to exchange ideas'; they have succeeded admirably.' --The Christian Parapsychologist, Dec 2006 'The 12 chapters here each have the potential to inspire, depending on the reader's own contact with psyche. Those who see the sky as little more than a medium for cheap flights for escapist holidays are, sadly, unlikely to choose this book for aeroplane reading but if they did one might expect almost a human alchemical insight.' --Northern Earth, Dec. 2006 'Complex ideas are presented not only with clarity but also as expressions of the numinous. Some sections were challenging, others almost read as poetry or as song. I loved this book because it has emerged from a different discipline, and has served to illumine my own as an artist, and has left me refreshed, uplifted and inspired.' --Inner Light Magazine, Spring 2007 'They are more than lectures. As the reader I can feel myself being personally addressed by the various contributors speaking out of professional and life experience ... This book could be a rare, nourishing wellspring for life, for the amateur and professional soul carer.' -- Anita Large, Perspectives, June - August 2007 'There is no doubt that its various authors have combined to create a book of considerable importance, and one that can be strongly recommended to astrologers, psychotherapists, and all who are concerned with trying to understand our place within the cycle and images of the world.' -- Mike Harding, Correlation: Astrological Association Journal of Research in Astrology

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dog in a Flat Cap on 7 April 2011
Format: Paperback
I found this an illuminating read, introducing many themes relevant to the enduring relationship between we humans and our sky. It is at base a collection of conference papers, but written engagingly as well as with academic rigour. Essays include an examination of Chartres Cathedral, and how sunlight was 'factored in' to the architectural design to enhance the spiritual experience; there is much discussion of how sky is an integral part of many (if not all) religions and spiritual practices, and how beliefs and perceptions have changed, and the implications of such changes. The well known astrologers Liz Greene and Robert Hand have included essays, and while Greene's looks at medieval alchemical texts on the nature of Saturn (the old king), Hand's is an intriguing examination of mathematical formulae and the hypothetical dimensions of time and space. Other essays look at modern disenchantment, while still others examine religious statues and sky-worship in sub-Saharan Africa. A broad scope, but fascinating for anyone interested in such themes. Recommended for students of cosmology or other interested parties.

This book is constructed of various people discussing different subjects relating to the topic Sky and the Psyche so whilst all of these essays in the book may not be of interest its all highly interesting and you will definitely find areas in here that resonate with you and which you will be grateful you read the book for. I have learn some valuble insights.
Great read.
