Book description
From Library Journal
Rutter, a Jungian therapist, explains the mythical and tribal rituals she calls upon in treating female patients who have chosen a female therapist because they seek a feminine other. Her patients report feeling conflict-ridden, overwhelmed, or out of balance; they suffer from "external stresses that mirror a change pushing up from within; it is time to move from one place to another. An initiatory threshold has been reached, or life has been dammed up at an old stage." Through accounts and interpretations of dreams and life events of three women patients--and of Rutter herself in the dyad of therapist-patient over years of therapy--the author chronicles the women's maturation as they become better able to function comfortably in modern (patriarchal) society. For libraries with New Age and feminist collections.
