Each of our lives, like each human society, has a political/ego-driven perception of our life and its issues, and an unconsciously whispered version of our life. It is the unconscious mind's version of our life that holds all of the insight we need in order to effectively and fully come to terms with our hopes and our fears, our conflicts and our passions. This book delivers to the reader the unconscious mind's version of a human life.
And this particular life, Ilana Haley the poet, is strangely representative of our species as a whole, in our idealistic beginnings, our early traumas, our adventurous youth, our passionate adulthood, our slowly emerging hope of a psychological/spiritual metamorphosis, and the longed for resolution of our seemingly un-solvable conflicts. With this psychological landscape so fully drawn by both the poetry of a gifted poet, Ilana Haley, and the analysis of John Brusseau, the reader is gifted with insightful access to the landscape of their own life.
This is a book that is at once both intellectually clear-sighted and spiritually vibrant.
