Helen M. Luke devoted her life to the exploration of the self -- both her own and that of countless others who came to her for counseling. She was endowed with a deep grasp of archetypal forces and the ability to evoke them with luminous prose.

Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On consists of a memoir she wrote at the age of seventy but never published and excerpts culled from the fifty-four volumes of journals written in her final years. She weaves together dreams and symbolic images from her inner life with personal and world events, bringing a clear, unsentimental honesty and vibrant insight to all that she recounts. Reflecting on her past as a way of illuminating the present, Luke inspires us to be aware, attend to our personal truths, and "know and accept and live the next thing with devotion." This is Helen Luke's final and magnum opus -- her gift to the world.

Review:

"The publishing of the autobiography and journals of one of the century's wise women is an occasion for celebration." -- Jean Houston, author, A Mystic Life

About the Author:

Helen M. Luke was born in England in 1904. In mid-life she studied at the Jung Institute in Zurich and then established an analytical practice with Robert Johnson in Los Angeles. In 1962 she founded the Apple Farm Community in Three Rivers, Michigan, "a center for people seeking to discover and appropriate the transforming power of symbols in their lives." Helen Luke was the author of four other books, including Old Age, a classic text on how to age wisely. She died at Apple Farm in 1995.
