In The Wisdom of Oz, psychotherapist Gita Dorothy Morena expands upon the metaphors of America's most beloved fairy tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Morena, great-granddaughter of L/ Frank Baum, offers unique insight into Oz as she describes the story's influence on her life and her work as a Jungian Sandplay therapist. In this publication, timed to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Morena celebrates her great-grandfather's literary gift to the world and explores passageways to psychological healing through the archetypes of Oz.
--- from the publisher
"Because The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is grounded in a timeless wisdom, it speaks to its readers and viewers on both a universal and personal level. Dr. Morena shows the story to be what Baum could hardly have imagined it becoming: a guidebook to our inner journey through the enchanted land of Oz and home again."
-John Algeo, President of Theosophical Society in America
