This book is about the struggle to become conscious. It is about overcoming addictions-to food, drugs, work, etc. It is about the wisdom of the body, initiation rituals, dreams. It is about relationship and the search for personal identity. It is a celebration of the feminine, both in men and in women. It is about becoming free. The Pregnant Virgin explores a process of change akin to the metamorphosis of caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. It describes periods in the chrysalis when life as we have known it is over and we are effectively alone. No longer who we were, we know not who we may become. At such times a thinking heart can bring us closer to our inner virgin, "one-in-herself," forever open to new life, new possibilities-our own unique truth. Book jacket.
