This work constitutes a rare and valuable contribution to a radically different way of approaching physical illness and suffering. Only archetypal medicine, it seems, recognizes that there can be health only when there is also illness. Illness represents one of the primary ways in which the forgotten, sleeping soul awakens itself by falling into body.
