Embrace of the Daimon

Healing through the Subtle Energy Body/ Jungian Psychology & the Dark Feminine

“I will cut out the many passing insights here that are expressed so beautifully and tersely and make them my appendix, my guidelines for dealings with the Devil.” — Thomas Moore (from the Foreword)

Have you wrestled with uncanny, nightmarish imagery in dreams or waking and wondered if you were coming unhinged one day and enlightened the next? Life crises, trauma, deep meditation, prayer or inquiry can unleash surprisingly compelling yet scary, even revolting, daimonic imagery and related feelings we have few maps to help navigate.

Yet these experiences call to us with a hauntingly familiar voice, inviting us to unite body and soul.

Embrace of the Daimon leads us to this growing edge of the psyche and invites our curiosity and caring.  This book charts a course of radical acceptance of experience — no matter how painful or repulsive — as absolutely necessary for our well-being and the well-being of the planet. The Greeks understood the daimon as the intermediary between gods and humans, the guardian spirit assigned at birth, connecting heaven and earth.

These messengers come as agents of radical change. They invite a descent into the underworld of the psyche we want to avoid. When we turn instead to welcome them with understanding and compassion, they show they are here to expand consciousness.

They have the capacity to connect us with healing qualities our world is waiting for. This book outlines a simple method to navigate these alarming images and anxieties. Instead of treating them as perversions to banish, we are encouraged to embrace their primal power becoming more intelligent, loving and whole in the process.  Read more…
