    One thought on “The Sacred Prostitute: Eternal Aspect of the Feminine”

    1. This is one of those books that opened such a big view that I felt changed by it Coming from a Jungian psychology approach, the author describes the archetype that has been severely suppressed by our modern patriarchal culture, with its shameful view of the body and sexuality She goes into the history of Goddess dominated pre Christian religion, and the common practice of sacred prostitution, where sexuality is considered sacred and a channel through which one can access the Divine, and that the [...]

    2. In every heart, both male and female, there is an eternal and immutable touchstone of joy All too often that joy is lost in contemporary society, through harsh experience, or in the rush towards simplistic ideologies like men bad, women good or the opposite Nancy Qualls Corbett attempts to show both men and women how to transcend the narrowly defined sex roles and oppressions that have been imposed on them from childhood and to rediscover that touchstone of joy She succeeds admirably, I think Th [...]

    3. This reads like a thesis paper, and there are a lot of instances in which it seems almost painfully obvious that the author is fitting her source material to her ideas An interesting few ideas and theories about masculine and feminine development in the psyche I think but most interesting towards the end when Qualls discusses the Marys of Christianity and a couple other female figures.

    4. Felt like a graduate work than a serious study too little data on the archetype in diffirent cultures And at times it didn t feel like an original book But still some interesting ideas made me like it.

    5. Because of the gender essentialism and lack of non Hetero relationships read this book with a grain of salt It s still one of the most important books I ve ever read.

    6. It has been a long time since I was reading Marion Woodman and Nancy Qualls Corbett but do know I enjoyed the read at the time.

    7. I devoured this book It is an important academic read for anyone who wants to reclaim the power of their creative, feminine spirit.

    8. A study of Jungeian archetypes, as well disclosing on ancient carnal rituals I found the book to be most inspiring to myself, personally.

    9. This book changed the way I view myself and women I cannot ask of any writing, but to open my mind to things I have not yet seen on my own Thank you I ve read this three times.

    10. Somewhat academic, and lots of stories of other people s dreams and what the meanings might stand for Based on Jung s psychology, and the Feminine Interesting read.
