Marion Woodman is a Jungian analyst who has used her own life experience, plus the experience of hundreds of clients, to illuminate the path to wholeness within. Now in her seventies, she has once again tackled a thorny issue and transformed it with her light: the journey into old age. In The Crown of Age, she takes on the subject of conscious aging and the gifts that come with that process.
Marion reminds us that as we age, we each need to develop a finely developed masculine and a finely developed feminine in order to achieve true wholeness. Listening to Marion speak, I found myself comforted and strengthened. Old age is a time when the soul can burn through more brightly than ever. It can transform an entire room. It was through listening to this tape series that I decided it was time to really get serious about my dreams. She reminded me that the soul speaks to us through our dreams. In all her years of work, she has never heard two dreams that are alike, which speaks volumes about the preciousness of our individual lives and gifts. The Dream-maker broadcasts her messages each night. Our job is to pay attention, so that we can integrate our souls into our daily lives. Nothing is more important or exhilarating.
Woman is the ideal balance of beauty and strength, an eternal mystery
shrouded in countless layers of history, tradition, culture, and faith.
Such complexity is at the heart of the CD release Divine Feminine. Each
who listens may hear a different element in the complexity, simplicity,
and mystery of how the composer and performer visualize woman. Contains
16 classical works from composers such as from Berlioz, Holst,
Prokokiev, Orff, and more.
