Fisher King Press Announces Another Forthcoming Jungian Publication

With great pleasure, Fisher King Press announces another forthcoming Jungian publication:

Sea Glass: A Jungian Analyst's Exploration of Individuation and Suffering 

by Gilda Frantz

Sea Glass: A Jungian Analyst’s Exploration of Suffering and Individuation explores experiences many of us encounter in the course of a lifetime, including those of early childhood. As we mature we can begin to become aware that suffering, when made conscious, can lead us on a path toward higher consciousness, toward the experience of wholeness or individuation. The examples related in this book are told as a storyteller might and include the all-too-human experiences of loneliness, loss, shame, abandonment, aging, disenfranchisement, working with dreams, dealing with the opposites, striving to find one’s creativity, and relationship issues.
