Harms, a teacher of Ira Progoff's Intensive Journal method of self-discovery, developed the Inner Lover concept to represent images that can bring deeper self-acceptance and provide the unconditional love and support lacking in the everyday world. Primarily drawing upon her own life story, dreams, and therapy, Harms brings together Jungian theory, dreamwork, and journal keeping. Concentrating on projections (i.e., the displacement of qualities that reside in oneself onto beloved others), Harms states that readers can learn to recognize, own, and develop these latent, hidden, or repressed parts, thereby unleashing creative energy. In keeping with the idea of the Inner Lover, much of the imagery is of an explicit sexual nature. The reader unfamiliar with Jungian theory may not be able to get beyond the surface of this book. For women in therapy, this book may be a useful tool for focusing on issues of love, sex, and power relations. Appropriate for large psychology collections.
