He also emphasizes that this process of fruitful self-knowledge calls us into a continuing confrontation with ourselves and our experiences.
Teaching to a broad, modern audience, this book presents the profound principles that form a loving relationship in an easily accessible manner. Using a simple approach, it will help people shift their attitudes and give them the skills to create a loving, long-lasting partnership.
In the present day, our culture’s evolving masculine spirit seems to be sputtering out. We began with a powerful, creative force, yet somewhere along our path, phallus has been rendered impotent. The unicorn, this wondrous masculine symbol, has been reduced to a limp-horned stuffed animal found in novelty stores or worse yet, discarded to a dusty old shelf of a second-hand thrift shop.
In this stimulating and inspiring book, Jungian analyst Bud Harris, Ph.D., challenges us to reconsider our views of spirituality and sexuality as opposites and bring them into harmony and creativity. Together, we can heal one of our culture’s great wounds of the soul.
