Facing the Gods: Archetypal Patterns of Existence

Preparing to Meet the Gods: The Soul Turned Inward with John Van Eenwyk, PhD

Experiencing the archetypes as personified gods and goddesses active in our lives reveals the great powers shaping our moods, choices, and actions. Facing the Gods: Archetypal Patterns of Existence illuminates the Olympian stories that serve as reflecting pools where we, as psychic heirs of Greece, discover ourselves. By recognizing the gods and goddesses at work we can gain release from archetypally determined patterns. It was recorded in 1991.
