This book is Volume Three in a new series titled Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious: Reflecting American Culture Through Literature and Art. (See right for links to the other volumes.)
About the series: Images and symbols, what Carl Jung called archetypes, reflect the inner recesses of our personal and collective soul. They inhabit the art, literature, and media of our time and deeply influence how we live our lives. This impressive series of four anthologies containing poetry, fiction, photographs, and drawings was conceived by Jeremy P. Tarcher and edited by therapist and author Mark Robert Waldman. Philip Dunn and Manuela Dunn Mascetti of the Book Laboratory have designed each volume with 50 full-color illustrations. Psychology, culture, and spirituality come together in a fruitful and fascinating dialogue about the American spirit in all of its enchanting and infuriating mystery and paradox.
About this volume: Seeker: Traveling the Path to Enlightenment, with an introduction by Jean Houston, surveys the incredible diversity of spiritual questing going on in America through a lively mix of stories, memoirs, art, and poetry. Explore and meditate with selections by Richard Russo, a Catholic; the Dalai Lama, a Tibetan Buddhist; and Jonathan Edwards, a seventeenth century Puritan preacher.
