Jung and the Ancestors : Beyond Biography, Mending the Ancestral Web Paperback / softback
Part of the Muswell Hill Press series
The known and unknown stories of our ancestors are present in our personal symptoms, disposition, aspirations, and the questions which inform our lives.
Our ancestral and cultural legacies continue living in our bodies, through our relationships, in both matter and the timelessness of psyche.
These legacies root us in the past and implicate us in the lives of the generations that will follow.
Grounded in Jungian theory, this book is an exploration of the ways in which the ancestors, from the archetypal to the personal, influence us in the present and implicate us in the lives of the generations that will follow.
The personal stories of eight women, including the author's personal story, will be presented.
A descriptive analysis of some of the observable dynamics which are discernible in these stories will be presented as a way to ground the theoretical aspects of the work in lived biographies and ancestral voices.
