The daimon is the spiritual companion of women: one who appears in a male shape in their dreams, fantasies and meditations, playing a significant part in shaping their lives. He has many guises and is central to an understanding of women's sexuality, creativity and spirituality.

This is such an important book about the internal relationships women have with the male aspects of their souls, though it is far more then that alone. In this book women share their experiences of the daimon, a figure that has been misunderstood and demonised by men and religion because they simply cannot understand its function. Men have written endlessly about the Muse. Well, this is one for the girls. If you want to understand yourself better and those experiences and dreams that some of us are lucky enough to have from time to time, get a copy. I have never read another book like this. To Ms Matthews, please write another and take the concept further, I was left wanting more!!!

What I didn't like about this book--it's super New Agey (priestesses talking about rituals, not that there's anything wrong with that... just not my style), and I felt like there was not enough variety in the women interviewed to get a clear view of women's psychology.
