Overview

Why do so many women now feel so conflicted about their roles, so cut off from sources of spiritual nourishment in their lives? More importantly, what can they do about it? In The Way of Woman, Helen M. Luke has brought six decades of experience to bear in answering these two questions, drawing on a rich trove of feminine images and symbols from the Bible, mythology, folklore, Greek tragedies, and modern poetry to guide women on a path to the lasting personal fulfillment that can only come through understanding one's essential feminine nature.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Women, says Luke (Old Age: Journey into Simplicity, Audio Reviews, LJ 3/15/92), need to be in touch with their essential feminine nature in order to effect spiritual growth in themselves and others. Through commentary and Jungian analysis of female symbols and archetypal images from ancient and modern literature, Luke explores this basic message. Throughout, she stresses the distinction between masculine and feminine psyches. In eight selections from her 1992 book Kaleidoscope: The Way of Woman and Other Essays (LJ 6/15/92), she speaks with the wisdom of a sage on such topics as humility, marriage, divorce, relationships, the women's movement, and mothering. Luke's program, with some new and at times controversial views, is a true celebration of feminine worth that belongs in all women's studies collections. Read by the author.-Barbara J. Vaughan, State Univ. Coll. at Buffalo Lib., N.Y.
