Description : Central to the Analytical Psychology of Dr. Carl Gustav Jung is the concept of individuation, the journey to an integrated and whole self whose prime task is the integration of the Unconscious Psyche. The poems in The Traveler represent such a journey, and span a rich and diverse human experience. Love and death, good and evil, existence and annihilation stand side by side as they clash within the life of the human individual. Through the creative act the warring forces are joined and give birth to the transcendental Self, which links us to the Divine Root, which is the cause and sustainer of all Being. The poetic journey of The Traveler speaks to all who strive to realize what it means to be truly human and to any human individual who demands of him or herself the courage to undertake this journey.

Description : Some love affairs mark our lives forever. Whether we call them "la grande passion, " tragic romance, or "l'amour fou, " they remain indelible because they are impossible. Why do we fall in love at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and with the wrong person? Why do we put up with the anxiety, the pain, the shame, and the longing never fulfilled? This brilliant book explores the nature of these "marvelous disasters" and finds a deeper necessity in the betrayals, taboos, and excesses of impossible love. Using perhaps the greatest of all tragic romances-the passion between Heloise and Abelard-as a psychological scaffold, Jan Bauer examines the erotic structures of irresistible attraction with love stories from the lives of men and women today. This is an exceptional study of love's chaotic mystery. Jan Bauer, author of "Women and Alcoholism, " is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Montreal. She holds degrees from Zurich, Boston, and Paris and has taught in Tunisia as well as the University of Montreal. She has served as chair of Admissions as well as Training Director for the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.
