9780044408611: Moving Heaven and Earth: Symbols of Sexuality and Spirituality

The author argues that the West has inherited a divided world view, based on the splitting of mind from body, and spirit from matter; that our language and symbols reflect this division, and we think in pairs of opposites - male/female, white/black, active/passive - in ways which reinforce conformist and often oppressive stereotypes; and that symbols are not god-given, but man-made, and can be changed. Based on the view that women are at the centre of a religion founded on nature's cycles of renewal and the circular movement of a female sun, the book offers exercises drawn from established psychotherapy and meditation, to enable individuals to develop different symbolic vocabularies and challenge the mind/body split in their own lives.
