Do you have a reference for the Tarnas quotes?"

THE SACRED CHILD

             If someone had a dream of the massacre of children; a mother slain by the son’s own hand who then takes his life, what would it mean?

Copyright Nov. 2011 by Elizabeth Clark-Stern

In America, we are preparing for the feast of Thanksgiving, a celebration that carries plenty of shadow from our history of receiving many gifts of the new world from the Native Americans, even as we ultimately conquered, colonized, and displaced them. This reality is so typically brushed aside in the flurry of shopping and meal preparation. And yet, it surfaces, as…

WRESTLING WITH THE SHADOW:
A playwright’s journey into the heart of C.G. Jung
by Elizabeth Clark-Stern

The play has just been published, in may, 2010, a beautiful edition available at www.fisherkingpress.com, or on…
