Healing the Wounded God
Finding Your Personal Guide on Your Way to Individuation and Beyond
by Jeffrey Raff & Linda Bonnington Vocatura

Through their work with their clients, their own experiences, and studies in myth, mysticism, and alchemy, the authors have traced the emergence of a new spiritual paradigm in which the divine seeks wholeness through and with us.

Many of us are having experiences that bring us in contact with a being who seems to exist independently in the realm beyond the psyche, or what the authors term “the psychoid.” This being, the ally, challenges and helps us along our way to individuation. The ally represents our divine counterpart and works with us, if we are willing, to help heal the schism between and within the divine and us.

The authors show us how to contact and consciously enter into a relationship with the ally through our dreams and by employing what C. G. Jung termed “active imagination.” When we work with the ally to transform ourselves, the divine transforms as well, all three elements co-creating a whole being. The authors explore the ally's parallels in mystical traditions such as Sufism and alchemy, and how the ally differs from angelic beings. They also present an exciting new view of various creation myths, revealing that salvation exists beyond the “vault of heaven” for God and human alike.

Dying to be Alive
Death as Spiritual Healer
by Linda Bonnington Vocatura

CLICK HERE TO ORDER from Red Wheel/Weiser. $12.95

Born of the author's personal experience as well as her studies in Jungian psychology, this book takes the fundamental ideas in Healing the Wounded God, which Vocatura co-authored with Jeff Raff, and applies them to life's most important challenge: developing soul-consciousness by becoming reconciled with the inevitability of one's death.

Through folk stories, dreams, and active imaginations, we come to know Death as a personified entity who announces Itself, and who we subsequently get to know as our guide from “Here” to “Elsewhere” and beyond to the Divinity existing in the infinite space outside our created world. Vocatura discusses how Death can be a partner in the journey to individuation and in working with the ally, a psychoidal manifestation of the divine center. Through this teaching, we can become aware of our immortal essence.

Vocatura's ideas have collective implications as she sheds new light on the apocalypse predicted in Holy Scripture. This book is a perfect blend of psychology and modern mysticism that will provide comfort and hope to those who are literally facing death, as well as inspiration for all of us to live life more consciously and never fear death again.
