This book is about a woman becoming herself. When you face the truth that your familiar psychological territory is no longer your moral, spritual or emotional home, when you map is out of date and the road ahead twists through a dark forest toward the unknown--then you know the experience, both terrifying and exhilarating, of the refugee who slowly evolves into the explorer.
In this unique collaborative work by analyst and analysand, a woman learns to understand her dreams, visions and emotions, and especially the kinship between sexuality and sprituality, acquiring in the process an authentic sense of self. Although it is one woman's story, her journey is similar to that undertaken by all those alive to the truths of inner growth.-from the publisher
