Alchemy of the Soul: The Eros & Psyche Myth as a Guide to Transformation
Alchemy of the Soul: The Eros & Psyche Myth as a Guide to Transformation, by Martin Lowenthal, from Nicolas-Hays Inc., ISBN 0892540966. Life without myth, the vital force of archetypal experience, is life filled with maladies, neuroses, addictions and disease. This book retells the myth of Eros and Psyche to illustrate the alchemical process of marrying soul and matter to give life more joy, meaning, and a tangible sense of divine love. The final section offers an initiation into the alchemical mysteries, using myth as a mentor - after rescuing it from the esoteric realm and returning it to the world of stories.
