About the Author:

Christine Downing, emeritus professor of religious studies at San Diego State University, currently teaches at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. Her many other books include Gods in Our Midst, Women?s Mysteries, Myths and Mysteries of Same-Sex Love, The Luxury of Afterwards, Preludes, and Gleanings.

Review:

"In a series of chapters each focusing on a different goddess or mythical woman, Christine Downing traces her own path of individuation from maiden-daughter to mature woman. She writes in a direct and intimate way, using to great but effortless effect her deep culture and wide learning."
-The Journal of Analytical Psychology
