Book Three – Discovering the Hero Within

leave a comment »

Well, the deed is done and the new book can be previewed by simply clicking on the image of the book immediately to the left.  It has been a long time coming and I am satisfied with the result.  As with my other two books, this one is registered with the National Library of Canada and has been assigned an ISBN as part of the process.  This book is the third in the series that I have called Through a Jungian Lens.  Hopefully you will like the preview enough to consider buying the book.

The book takes a look at the Hero’s Journey which has its conceptual foundation in C,G. Jung’s book Symbols of Transformation, volume 5 of the Collected Works.  As well as having its basis in Jungian psychology, the book draws upon Joseph Campbell’s book, The Hero With a Thousand Faces.  Added to this mix are a collection of photos from the Saskatchewan landscape as well as my reflections as I wandered through the various stages of this journey as a way of providing a more basic idea of those stages to be found in this heroic journey, the process of individuation.

This is a journey that is cyclical in nature calling us to re-invest in becoming more aware of ourselves as we push back the darkness of the unconscious.  It is a journey that ends when we end.

For those who might be interested in the other two books, they are:

Swamplands and Soul, the first in this series.  This book looks at depression through images of swamplands found in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. The book draws upon the works of Jung and James Hollis, author of Swamplands of the Soul.

The second book in the series is called Tunnel Vision.  It is quite distinctive from the two books in that it is more about photography and poetry than it is about trying to explain a concept.  The photographs were taken with an eye tuned to Jungian psychology and the poetry reflects that orientation.

You can preview these two books by clicking on the images of these books.  Please don’t hesitate to let me know your opinions and thoughts of what you find in these books.  Hopefully, your comments will allow me to make the fourth book in this series be much better and more valuable to you.  The fourth book will be written during the SoFoBoMo project period beginning in June.  I will likely use parts of the new book as material for posts here during that time.
