Few life experiences challenge us like motherhood.

Being a mother will tire us out, fill us with dread, and move us to tears. It will inspire joy, self-doubt, hilarity, contentment, rage, terror, shame, irritation, inadequacy, grief, anxiety, and love. We will probably see ourselves at our very best – and our very worst.

Motherhood is the ultimate confrontation with yourself. It will help you to discover the treasure that lies within.

“The “well” metaphor of this book is a reminder of both the deep demands placed upon a woman with her own needs, but also her profound resources upon which to draw. Motherhood offers women and men a new appreciation of the archetypal field from which such challenges and resources come.”

James Hollis, Ph. D., Jungian analyst, bestselling author, and Director of the Jung Society of Washington, D. C.

“Most books for mothers focus on parenting skills. Here at last is a wise and compassionate book about a mother’s personal growth and psychological development.  Lively, accessible, and warm, Motherhood draws on the inexhaustible well of myth, dream, and fairy tale to explore a mother’s inner journey.”

Linda Schierse Leonard, PhD, author of The Wounded Woman and On the Way to the Wedding.
