About the Author

Mythology holds up a mirror to our inner life as humans, showing us how our personality and choices affect our lives. Myths of partnership not only impart wisdom about male-female relationships, but also about the balance of male and female qualities within us as individuals.

These stories from Greek (and one Egyptian) mythology are fascinating tales not only of love relationships, but also of the human quest for wholeness within.

Zeus and Hera are the perennial love/hate couple. Isis and Osiris bring new life out of tragedy. Jason and Medea show us what manipulation is like. Theseus and Ariadne deal with abandonment. Perseus learns to integrate his feminine side as part of his heroic quest. Psyche and Eros mature through the trials their union produced.

Shirley Kiefer retells these stories with new insight for our time. A retired librarian with a background in world religions, mythology and psychology, she helps us see their characters as parts of ourselves, giving us glimpses into these archetypal forces we all experience.

Whether you read these as literal partnership stories or as individual quests for wholeness, you will delight in rehearing these ancient tales in contemporary language.
