Overview

The renovation of a charming but ramshackle house in Massachusetts was the unexpected catalyst for a Jungian analyst's own remarkable journey of self-discovery.

In a story that will resonate with all women, Jerrilee Cain describes how, while turning that 18th century farmhouse into a home, she awakened to her identification with Hestia, the goddess of the hearth.

Here she presents an insightful analysis of the Hestian archetype that delves beneath the dowdy Victorian image of placid domesticity to reveal the original Greek concept of this ancient deity as the keeper of the burning creative force.

Containing the perpetual flame that nurtures, the hearth is the symbol of the home. But that same fire also inspires, representing the ecstatic way of life. In explaining how the universal yearning for home is inextricably intertwined with a fundamental desire to realize one's passion, Hestia Come Home illuminates for all of us a path to finding that perfect place where our body will be nurtured while our soul finds its life-affirming purpose.

This lyrical and compelling narrative opens our own awareness to the goddess within who has the power to guide us home.

What People Are Saying

Marion Woodman
Jerrilee Cain is a wonderful story teller. The stories in Hestia Come Home take the heart by storm. . . And hold that place sacred. I congratulate her. . . She has written a fine book.
—(Marion Woodman, author of The Owl is the Baker's Daughter, Addiction to Perfection and The Pregnant Virgin)
Robert A. Johnson
Jerrilee Cain writes of the different forms of ecstacy through which Hestia may be known today. Hestia, she points out, is still powerfully present and is reclaiming her place among the gods; is one of the emerging paradigms of the twenty-first century. In Hestia Come Home, the story of Hestia is enriched by vivid vignettes from Ms. Cain's own life. She offers wealth of research to support her thesis. I stand in awe of her scholarship and of her ability to present it in a text that is both warm and human. . . she has written a book that fills a vacant place in our understanding of this Goddess figure.
—(Robert A. Johnson, author of Ecstasy, Transformation, We, He, She)
Shaun McNiff
Jerrilee Cain's book is a 'Hestian' read, moving with a fiery and energetic flow, enlarging life and knowledge. Images of midwestern field and New England hearth keep Cain's soaring spirit grounded at every turn. Hestia Come Home has enriched my psychic household with creative inspiration and a much better understanding of this most important of the gods. Cain rediscovers Hestia for us all, integrating the quantum and mythic worlds, scholarly and ecstatic meditations, personal and cultural depths.
—(Dr. Shaun McNiff, author of Depth Psychology of Art and Art as Medicine)
