'Lying with the Heavenly Woman' is an exploration of the role of the feminine in men's lives. With insight and clarity, Jungian analyst Robert Johnson illuminates the inner feminine – the realm of meaning, feeling, and creativity – and the outer embodiments of femininity – a man's relationships to people who represent the life-enhancing feminine archetypes – from mother and sister to friend, soulmate, and spouse.
Illustrating man's relationship to femininity through myths, tales, and anecdotes, Johnson explores the dangers of failing to differentiate among the various feminine elements – from mid-life crisis and exaggerated 'masculine' bravado to incest and suicide – and shows how properly recognized these vital elements can allow a man to find meaning within himself and fulfilment in relationships with others.
Robert A. Johnson is a noted lecturer and Jungian analyst and the author of numerous books, including 'He, She, Owning Your Own Shadow', and 'The Fisher King and the Handless Maiden'.About the Author:
