Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Closeness: In Personal and Professional Relationships makes us very aware of the difference between the masks of closeness and genuine intimacy. Repeatedly the authors circle the mystery of the soul. To what extent must it be veiled? To what extent revealed? Readers are challenged to consider this in their personal and collective relationships."—Marion Woodman, author of Leaving My Father's House: A Journey to Conscious Femininity

"A thoughtful and heart-provoking collection of essays on intimacy and boundaries that is especially relevant to psychotherapists."—Jean Shinoda Bolen, author of Goddesses in Everywoman
