Combining psychology and spirituality, this practical book considers archetypes from Asian, Middle Eastern and European myths and explains how they can be used in therapeutic practice to help clients achieve personal or clinical goals.

It also includes case studies, engaging images, practical exercises, and quizzes for use with clients. Spiritual seekers will find the book's insights a great complement to their practice.

The concept of the archetype is crucial to Jung's radical interpretation of the human mind. Jung believed that every person partakes of a universal or collective unconscious that persists through generations. The origins of the concept can be traced to his very first publication in 1902 and it remained central to his thought throughout his life. As well as explaining the theoretical background behind the idea, in Four Archetypes Jung describes the four archetypes that he considers fundamental to the psychological make-up of every individual: mother, rebirth, spirit and trickster. Exploring their role in myth, fairytale and scripture, Jung engages the reader in discoveries that challenge and enlighten the ways we perceive ourselves and others.

Highly innovative work presenting a piercing interpretation of the tarot in terms of Jungian psychology. Through analogy with the humanities, mythology and the graphic arts, the significance of the cards is related to personal growth and individuation. The major arcana becomes a map of life, and the hero's journey becomes something that each individual can relate to the symbolism of the cards and therefore to the personal life. "Sallie Nichols, in her profound investigation of Tarot, and her illuminated exegesis of its pattern as an authentic attempt at enlargement of the possibilities of human perceptions has . .. performed an immense service for analytical psychology. Her book enriches and helps us to understand the awesome responsibilities laid upon us by consciousness .... On top of it all, she has done this not in an arid fashion, but as an act of knowing derived from her own experience of Tarot and its strangely translucent lights. As a result her book not only lives but quickens life in whomever it touches." —from the Introduction by Laurens van der Post

In Living the Wheel, Annabelle Nelson helps us move beyond psychological denial so we can begin to heal the emotions of the unconscious mind, thus opening it to merge with the spirit self hidden there. Spiritual development is not about being "good." It is about suspending judgement of the inner and outer world. In the process, we often deny the very emotions that make us human. Nelson presents positive techniques for people who have gone beyond the first phases of spiritual work so they can deal constructively with the emotions that are often perceived as being "wrong" or "bad" for someone on this path. In this exciting book, Nelson enables us to find our way to emotional health, unite with our spirit, and chart the awakening of the inner self.
