      Written in the tradition of Marian Woodman and Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Jungian analysts Massimilla and Bud Harris have given readers a roadmap for the most profound journey women--and men--must undertake. The journey to confront and transform the Medusa or Death Mother in ourselves, as well as in our culture. Using the Medusa and Perseus myth, as well as rich fairy tales and personal stories, readers are given a framework for how to transform that which paralyzes us with fear and robs us of our [...]

      From Asheville's own Jungian Analysts, Bud and Massimilla Harris.I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who had a mother and, yes, even for orphans who have never known their personal mothers as our entire culture lives under some measure of a "mother" complex. Our society is in transition. The entire concept of the FEMININE is in transition. Consequently, the entire concept of MASCULINITY is in transition. If you're more interested in exploring how this affects you and me and ALL of usthan you [...]

      I found this book to be rich with insight and appreciated the wisdom and healing offered through recognition of the Death Mother complex. The author's use of the myth of Medusa and fairy tales as a road map to improved well being is inspiring. I do have one criticism. For some context let me tell you that as a social worker who's life work and practice revolves around healing body shame and embracing body diversity, I believe our current societal obsession and fear of fatness is unhealthy and pa [...]

      This is a brave and important book exploring the heart-wrenching and terrifying myth of Medusa. The authors succeed in bringing psychological truth and meaning from this story and proceed to walk the reader through the steps needed to heal one's own relationship to this archetypal energy. It is personal and courageous. I recommend it for anyone resonating with the theme.

      meh probably would have appreciated this 30 years ago, but now not so much

      Into The Heart of the Feminine, has taken me on a profound journey that leads me to honor the feminine in my personal life. I also have a new cultural understanding of how the rejection of the feminine has affected, and is affecting, our world and history. One would think I would have found meaning solely through living this life as a woman, having understanding of what it is to live in a world with the added burdens that come with this package. However, as I read through this book, I felt as if [...]

      The first time I read Into the Heart of the Feminine I couldn’t put it down. It was a page-turner, like a thriller, but for different reasons. It was because I saw myself in the book over and over and over again. I discovered the reason why I feel certain things like scarcity, paralysis—being unable to do things I want to do, becoming silent. The list goes on and on. It was comforting to me to learn that these feelings and ways of behaving aren’t me. It’s not my fault. It is because of t [...]

      Men, don’t let the title scare you off. As engaging as it is informative, Into the Heart of the Feminine is a must-read for everyone, irrespective of gender. In the patriarchal context of modern society there can be few tasks more significant than reintegrating the feminine principle, and in providing a template for the accomplishment of this task Massimilla and Bud Harris have succeeded admirably.Having both earned doctorates at the Jung Institute in Zurich, it is to be expected that the aut [...]

      I highly recommend this book. It is a difficult book to read because it will bring up a lot of emotions which have probably been hidden from you for a long time. It is about trying to renew the archetypal feminine in our lives and in society, and uses the myth of Medusa to illustrate the fall of the feminine and its possible renewal and transformation in our lives. It is not about gender roles, it is about restoring emotions and creativity to a world of logic and facts. Reading this book is a ve [...]

      Deep within each of us is the potential to energize our lives. And somehow we all feel that. What we don't always understand is how to recognize and develop that sometimes hidden potential and bring it into full expression to enable us to live more deeply fulfilling lives. Recently, Dr. Massimilla Harris and Dr. Bud Harris published a book, Into the Heart of the Feminine, which serves as a guide in our search. These two Jungian analysts use their personal and professional experiences to give us [...]

      Occasionally a book comes along that impacts and changes your life. This book did that for me, and I suspect it will for many others. It addresses the Death Mother complex, an extreme form of what the Swiss psychologist called a negative mother complex. However, the book it is not abstract Jungian discourse. The authors share their own personal woundings to illustrate this complex and how to heal it. A strength of the authors' exploration of the Death Mother is they show it arising from more tha [...]

      This book has genuinely been a surprise to me. I started out thinking that I would be reading a good introduction to the feminine archetype, but what happened was a much deeper engagement with the subject matter. "Into the Heart of the Feminine" leads to the heart of the mother and all of the complicated aspects of that relationship. The story is told at several levels - conceptual, experiential, symbolic - and I found myself responsive to all. In the personal anecdotes and case histories I saw [...]

      I love this book! This book is a treasure if you seek self-knowledge! Have you ever wondered why? Why do you act and react the way you do to people and situations? The authors, Massimilla and Bud Harris, explain it’s because your inner feminine has been deeply wounded. And it speaks to all of us because no mother (of father for that matter) is perfect. And the ways the mother isn’t perfect will have consequences for her children. These are the consequences that, while deeply hidden in our un [...]

      I loved this book. It was warmly written, immediately accessible, deeply relatable, and transformative by nature. I took Into The Heart Of The Feminine and Marion Woodman's The Pregnant Virgin on a solo trip to Delphi, both of which were carefully and very specifically chosen to enhance my inner work along the way. I couldn't have chosen better. Each book profoundly enhanced the work central to the other. Although I just finished Into The Heart Of The Feminine last night, it's my intention to re [...]

      This was a Jungian work, but as Jungian works go, I found it to be less clear than others I've read (including Jung himself). I'm not really even sure if it was just poorly written, or if the actual connections the authors were trying to make were more tenuous than other Jungian works. I have the feeling that their overall points were sound, but just badly conveyed to the reader. It's not awful, but it's not great either.
