When her husband was diagnosed with a serious brain tumor, Marianne Tauber turned to art—painting and poetry—to cope with the situation. Years later, she explicates what was behind the drive to create, presenting seventeen paintings and poems alongside a narrative of the time of crisis in journal form and then delving into the concepts of Jungian psychology and alchemy to make sense of the images and their healing effect.

About the Author:

Marianne Tauber, PhD, is a licensed psychotherapist who received her doctorate in clinical depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California. She is presently residing in Los Angeles.

Review:

The Soul's Ministrations is one of the best and most inspirational firsthand accounts of how art heals by transforming a period of personal crisis and chaos into life affirming expression. Marianne Tauber's straightforward yet deeply evocative methods of contemplative painting and poetic response, convincingly connected to alchemical principles, demonstrate how the cultivation of soul can flourish in the most difficult times. ―Shaun McNiff, Professor, Lesley University, Cambridge, Mass., and author of Art Heals and Integrating the Arts in Therapy

"The Soul's Ministrations, with its rich elaboration of archetypal symbols, is a moving testament to the reality of the potential healing power within the human psyche." ―Katherine Sanford, Jungian analyst and author of The Serpent and the Cross: Healing the Split through Active Imagination

"Here are the twists and turns of a mystery novel, traversing the borderlines between life and death, hope and rage, purpose and despair. Tauber allows us into her very private world and reveals a spontaneous and deceptively simple exercise that helped her survive the unbearable. We see her images, feel them for ourselves, and then reflect upon her unhurried and open contemplation of their significance. This is both a deeply moving personal story and an innovative contribution to the technique and study of active imagination." ―Dyane Sherwood, Jungian analyst and editor of Jung Journal: Culture and Psyche

"This is a gripping and powerful book, catalyzed by crisis and personal tragedy, but born of an imaginative and courageous spirit. Through her meditative discipline, painting, and poetry, Tauber looks unflinchingly into the darkest depths of her soul. Creatively developing an alchemical active imagination, she follows an arduous path, not only to psychological survival, but to redemption, greater wholeness, and wisdom. Replete with archetypal and symbolic amplifications, The Soul's Ministrations is a significant and scholarly contribution to Jungian literature and a valuable guide to anyone who must struggle with the tragic aspects of life or wishes to learn about the creative depths of the psyche." ―Stanton Marlan, Ph.D., ABPP, Jungian analyst and author of The Black Sun: The Alchemy and Art of Darkness

"Marianne Tauber has made an outstanding contribution to Jung's method of active imagination, including a depth psychological understanding of alchemy. Her beautifully written, sensitive, and perceptive book interweaves narrative with wonderfully evocative, colorful, and powerful images to tell the profoundly moving story, and her commentary amplifies the spontaneous series of alchemical paintings that emerged. If you are interested in living active imagination in life, don't miss this book!" ―Joan Chodorow, Ph.D., editor of Jung on Active Imagination
