Local notes

In a series of chapters each focusing on a different goddess or mythical woman, Christine Downing traces her own path of individuation from maiden-daughter to mature woman. A therapist, university professor of religion, and former president of the American Academy of Religion, she writes what is essentially an autobiography with an inner focus on her dreams and fantasies, and their meanings to her. She writes in a direct and intimate way, using to great bit effortless effect her deep culture and wide learning.

This book is mostly Jungian in perspective. She encouraged me in my writing! .Dr. Christine Downing is one of my most esteemed professors and living examples of an overall great person--from my days at the California School of Professional Psychology.
