Psychologists have long realized that the ancient Greeks had deep insights into the human psyche which, whether they realized it or not, they expressed through their mythology. Peter Lemesurier's new book offers a way of using these insights directly as a startling new method of self-healing and self-realization. In the full tradition of Joseph Campbell, James Hillman and Karl Kerenyi, it applies the dynamics of the Greek myths to quite overwhelming effect - as many who have used the approach report. The system is homeopathic, in that it encourages co-operation with each currently controlling god in turn (once identified via a simple diagnostic test) thus allowing that god to move on.

About the Author:

Peter Lemesurier, a Cambridge-trained modern linguist and teacher and professional translator, has been writing books on various MBS subjects for more years than he cares to remember. Long associated with the New Age movement, and particularly with the Findhorn Community in Scotland, his The New Age Lexicon is a tongue-in-cheek guide to all the main New Age buzzwords, 'seen from the inside'. A world authority on Nostradamus, O Books have published his The Unknown Nostradamus (the first reliable biography in English) and Nostradamus: The Illustrated Prophecies (a complete transcription and translation of the original editions of Nostradamus's major work, complete with contemporary illustrative woodcuts and research into their actual sources, given that Nostradamus took most of his ideas from other people) -- both of them to celebrate the seer's 500th birthday in 2003.

Review:

Whether you enjoy analyzing your family and friends or looking for ways to explain or excuse your own strengths and weaknesses, this book provides a whole new slant. It can be read just for fun, but there is an uncanny ring of truth to it. Peter Lemesurier combines scholarship with wry humor, a compulsive mixture. Anna Corser, Physiotherapy Manager and Stress Counsellor This wonderful book has helped me a lot, not to mention others close to me. Artemis is utterly important to me. Only now can I see that she is the essential me that I have denied since puberty. Brita Brandt, prominent Finnish opera singer The Greek gods approach does provide a valuable framework and metaphor for talking about the journey we are all on, beset by inner problems and conflicts, and the book is a useful aid to self therapy (and ultimately Self-knowledge). David Hill, Professor Emeritus, University of Calgary

Book Description John Hunt Publishing, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Illustrated. Language: English. Brand new Book.

Basically, the system is homeopathic, in that it encourages co-operation with each currently controlling god in turn (once identified via a simple diagnostic test) thus allowing that god to "move on". By the same token, therefore, it gives readers full permission - perhaps for the first time in their lives - to be who they really are, removing all the stultifying effects of chronic guilt about themselves. But first, discover your god. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781905047994
