Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
Monika Wikman is a gifted Jungian psychologist and astrologer. Pregnant Darkness is her first book. Breathtaking in scope and approach, the author explains how to cope with our dark hours by seeking a connection to the deeper currents of life. These are the currents of life which give form and meaning.
Alchemical symbolism as applied to meditation visions, imagination, and dream work are discussed. A section titled "Mercurius as the Invaluable Inner Jackass" is sure to fascinate the reader in this intelligent discussion of the wilderness of the psyche. This book gives much food for thought.
Dr. Wikman currently lives in Tesuque, New Mexico.
This book with its wide approach to the psyche, and precise details, will find a large reading audience. Well worth your time to read, it is full of Jungian insights. This is a well-crafted nonfiction work, and a fine first book from Wikman.
