This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mar 06, Qasim Zafar rated it really liked it Shelves: I loved this book. It offers a perspective on the alchemy of dark emotions that is incredibly unique, and at the same time draws from different writers and cultures to drive the points home.
I especially loved the fact that unlike many other books, the author doesn’t push some idealized notion of finding some sort of “light” at the end of the tunnel; but rather lays out the process for the proper integration of the darkness into the personality of the person undergoing the process, and also talk I loved this book.
Whatever a person finds at the end of their process, they find. Feb 21, Rjyan rated it liked it.
But I somewhat suspect that anyone with a desire to read this book has probably done some other reading on alchemy and psychology, right? And while it’s neat how skn different sources Marlan brings int It was OK.
And while it’s neat how many different sources Marlan brings into the mix here, he never really introduces any big, original images or insight that you wouldn’t have etanton already, especially if you’ve read some Hillman.
If you’re a fiction writer just looking to delve into the significance of the Black Sun as an archetypal symbol, there’s some stuff in here for you, but it’s pretty squarely aimed at practicing analysts and academics and probably ain’t going to Blow Your Mind.
However, I will never sell this book. There’s 15 color pages and one of them has this picture from an old alchemical treatise that is too beautiful to part with.
