Heroine’s Journey

Murdock traces her journey from rejection of the feminine in order to “succeed” in a masculine world; through discovery of the inadequacy of “success”; through a dark night of the soul and a killing of masculine divine images; to a discovery of the Goddess and of the feminine (including her own feminine embodiment); to a healing of the separated feminine and of the wounded masculine within herself. She ends with the hope for true conjunction, true union beyond duality. This personal book by a family therapist is especially recommended for public and seminary libraries.
