One symbol, perhaps above all others, holds a crucial significance for everyone in search of wholeness: the well. From the terrestrial world it leads down into darkness, to the treasure of pure feminine consciousness. We are each blessed with our own well, and from this source of salvation and eternal life, teaches Marion Woodman, we must "drink or die."

In Sitting by the Well, this acclaimed Jungian analyst and author uses dreams, symbols, and body imagery to reach into the shadows of the unconscious mind and cast light on our everyday lives. Here is a poetic culmination of Woodman's many years of work with the psychological impact of patriarchy on men's and women's lives—from distorted body image and addiction, to sexual trauma and relationships, to our ultimate connection with the Great Mother (matter) and Great Father (spirit).

Rare Lectures Collected for the First Time

On six archival recordings—each one digitally remastered for maximum clarity and comprehension—Marion Woodman unravels Carl Jung's core teachings about archetypes and the unconscious, and analyzes how dreams and metaphors provide powerful healing tools for the psyche. You will hear the evolution of Woodman's theories throughout the past decade, while vividly sharing her insights into what we each must do to open to spirit and find meaning in our suffering. For all of us interested in what Woodman calls "the language of our instincts," Sitting by the Well is a one-of-a-kind guide for learning it.

In her practice, Woodman has encountered many people who feel lost and out of touch with their bodies and their spirits. Where is the energy and imagery we need for nourishment? Join Marion Woodman and find your way to a wellspring for deeper guidance with Sitting by the Well.

Review for Sitting by the Well Review by Linda K

I learned so much from listening to these lectures. In fact, I listened twice. This came at just the right time in my own life, where I'm spending more and more time sitting by the well.

Review for Sitting by the Well Review by ENID SEFCOVIC

This appears to be a collection of Woodman's lectures, some rather short, rather than a well-developed course. It has a recycled quality to it. Woodman is a leading Jungian theorist and analyst worth my time, nonetheless.

Review for Sitting by the Well Review by Suzanne Bates

Marian Woodman helps us navigate both the intellectual as well as some experiential ways of knowing the feminine archetype. She provides incisive observations on the divine feminine gleaned from decades as a Jungian psychoanalyst. She uses a wide array of apt illustrations from world literature, myth, and folklore to help illustrate the path the feminine has used to emerge into our individual lives. She also presents meditations for us to reflect on what our gifts are from the feminine depths, gifts we might use to help heal our wounded culture.
