This review is from: The Heroine's Journey (Paperback)
This book contains real wisdom and practical insights.
We are all (or nearly all) damaged. The 'masculine' and 'feminine' parts of ourselves have been split and labelled 'better' and 'worse' than each other. We can see the results in our society (which as a man I would say still teaches us unconsciously that boys are better than girls, or vice versa, that killing is better than talking, ...). And we can see it in our trashing of the environment (which as I write this in early 2011 is beginning to impact us more, through the storms in Australia and the USA, and even (I would argue) Fukushima...).
I am a man and I found this book one of the best, deepest, and most accurate and applicable psychology books I have read.
There is real insight here.
The Heroine's Journey is a journey of true healing, in a way that I believe the Hero's Journey is not.
If just a fraction of the people on the planet could experience it, the world would be transformed.
