This book is Volume Two 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: Healer: Dancing with the Healing Spirit, with an introduction by Andrew Weil, examines the transformations taking place in American health care with regard to physicians, patients, and alternative or holistic paths of healing. The tales and memoirs in this anthology include pieces by William Carlos Williams, Oliver Sacks, Caroline Myss, Ram Dass, Lewis Thomas, and Rachel Naomi Remen.
