Thanks to authors like Robert Bly, Joseph Campbell, and Michael Meade there is a newly kindled interest in how mythology and ancient traditions apply to our modern relationships. Trials of the Heart mines the rich ore of truth in these ancient and heroic tales and connects their timeless wisdom with the struggles so many of us experience with one another and within ourselves. It sheds a ray of light into the dark and twisting labyrinth that intimate relationships so often become. Psychotherapist and couple's therapist, Dr. Michael Mayer, invites each of us to embark on our own mythic journeys and experience, with deeper understanding, the trials of love. bodymindhealing.com

...a masterful integration of mythology and contemporary psychology about the universal themes of love and life, pain, hurt, rage, and death. Trials of the Heart follows in the tradition of Joseph Campbell - a Hero of a Thousand Faces for couples.
- Jane Goldberg, Ph.D, author of The Dark Side of Love, and Deceits of the Mind
The power in Trials of the Heart resides in its use of myth, symbols, and paradox to illuminate its subject and assist readers to make choices that will help them penetrate life's mysteries... Its wisdom is practical yet profound, poignant but positive.- Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. co-author, Personal Mythology
