Jungian therapist Marion Woodman and psychologist Elinor Dickson write about the re-emergence of this powerful force in spirituality and in the psyches of contemporary women and men. The dark goddess is "love forged in fire" who helps us heal the dualities that exist within ourselves. She transforms suffering into soulwork and promises creative renewal. The case histories in this book show how women and men through dreams and body work are able to use the goddess as an ally on their path toward wholeness. In the last chapter Woodman and Dickson reveal that feminine wisdom is forging the way to "the transformation of consciousness."
