About the book: Addiction to Perfection by Marion Woodman 

Through case studies, dreams, and myths, a Jungian analyst explores the hidden causes of compulsion in the lives of men and women. At the root of eating disorders, substance abuse, and other addictive and compulsive behaviors, Woodman sees a hunger for spiritual fulfillment. The need to experience a sacred connection to an energy greater than their own drives people to search for an illusory ideal of perfection. Through discussions of parenthood, creativity, and body image, this presentation shows that freedom from addiction can be found by discovering the wisdom and power of the feminine principle. 

Marion Woodman is a graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute of Zurich and is a writer, international teacher and workshop leader, and Jungian analyst. With over half a million books in print, she is one of the most widely read authors on analytical and feminine psychology of our time (Marion will not be participating in this event).

    That's unfortunate and I was wondering about that for you.  Phone calling in is not supported in my other webinars unfortunately (the course is designed to be viewed).  I've cancelled your order and refunded your purchase.  Take care and see you around the Alliance! Best, Gary
