Many years ago, I had one of those great bookstore experiences where a life changing book literally fell off a shelf into my hands. It was The Hero Within: Six Archetypes We Live By, written by Carol Pearson. This was one of my initial exposures to archetypal principals that illustrate the transformational patterns of human behavior. Carol's work helped me to see my own journey through life from a greater perspective and, as a story analyst, it deeply enhanced my ability understand and detect the interior mechanisms that drive plot and character development.
Carol Pearson's books have remained at the top of my recommended reading list throughout the last few decades and I am now really thrilled to add her newest work, Persephone Rising: Awakening the Heroine Within, to my bookshelf. As you know, my own work has lead me into the depths of the Feminine Heroic from which we retrieve life's meaning and value, so I truly hope this book and all of Carol's work will fall into your hands, as well.
