The Wounded Woman: Hope and Healing for Those Who Hurt

$15.99

This book is an invaluable key to self-understanding. Using examples from her own life and the lives of her clients, as well as from dreams, fairy tales, myths, films, and literature, Linda Schierse Leonard, a Jungian analyst, exposes the wound of the spirit that both men and women of our culture bear—a wound that is grounded in a poor relationship between masculine and feminine principles.

Leonard speculates that when a father is wounded in his own psychological development, he is not able to give his daughter the care and guidance she needs. Inheriting this wound, she may find that her ability to express herself professionally, intellectually, sexually, and socially is impaired. On a broader scale, Leonard discusses how women compensate for cultural devaluation, resorting to passive submission (“the Eternal Girl”), or a defensive imitation of the masculine (“the Armored Amazon”).

The Wounded Woman shows that by understanding the father-daughter wound and working to transform it psychologically, it is possible to achieve a fruitful, caring relationship between men and women, between fathers and daughters, a relationship that honors both the mutuality and the uniqueness of the sexes.

Lyrics:
I'll have a day my way without wrong.
So she let's her hair down, and hums a familiar song.
Open-ended, this end up.
Twenty-five cents tells my sob story.
One of wiped eyes and of dragonfly dreams.
One where peace visits often.
Let the years be kind and sieve-like, for the love of the wounded.
Filter out this hate, strike me up instead of down, for the love of the wounded.
Oh silly me, crazy in these lazy days.
Find for me what it means to be truly free.
I'll change my name for rejection's sake.
What would mother say if I were happy for awhile?
If these castle walls destroyed dragonfly dreams and peace kept its distance.
Let the years be kind and sieve-like, for the love of the wounded.
Filter out this hate, strike me up instead of down, for the love of the wounded.

Sandra Wright - Wounded Woman - LP Music - Soul Brother

"I believe this is one of the most important books ever written for women. Every page is filled with nurturing wisdom and refreshing hope. At last, for every wounded woman, there is a pathway out of the hurt and pain."
