Jungian Clarity and Spiritual Depth
29 April 2016 - Published on Amazon.com

I have just begun reading the Kindle version of Christine's new book. I am impressed with the way in which the depth psychology of Carl Jung is explained with such clarity and how the archetypes of Jung's analytic psychology are interwoven with the lives of certain monks and mystics throughout the book. I plan to use the book as the source of a study with older residents at the retirement community where I am a chaplain. Another strength of this work is the explanation and application of lectio divina to enable an understanding of Jungian archetypes in our lives. This book is a valuable contribution to our spiritual and psychological development.

Another wonderful book from Christine Valters Paintner! In her thoughtful, encouraging way, Christine invites us to explore the archetypes within ourselves while finding company with the saints across the ages. Like her other books on the spiritual pilgrimage, this newest offering is accessible to the spiritually curious regardless of their level of training or experience, and it provides a rich variety of practical yet creative ways to engage the material.

A delightful and illuminating look at archetypes.Helpful for embracing the parts of myself I tend to ignore or keep in the shadows. A book to be moved through slowly with practices included to help accept you whole self.
Jungian Archetypes for the Contemporary Book Club
7 December 2016 - Published on Amazon.com

Our parish spiritual book club is using this book monthly for reflection. An archetype is featured in each chapter in the person of a biblical or historical personage. The author uses many paths to explain the archetype: scripture, art, poetry and Jungian analysis. The book provokes interesting discussion.

I am enjoying the book and journey through the archetypes beginning with St. Francis, Holy Fool. Would recommend this to artist contemplative modern day monks.
