Autism Movement Therapy (R) Method: Waking up the Brain!

I have been teaching youth of all ages and abilities to dance flamenco and practice yoga for 20 years and I so appreciate Joanne Lara and Keri Bowers’ Autism Movement Therapy Method.

AMTM helps to develop essential social and emotional skills along with memory...

Death and Desire (RLE: Lacan)

The immensely influential work of Jacques Lacan challenges readers both for the difficulty of its style and for the wide range of intellectual references that frame its innovations. Lacan’s work is challenging too, for the way it recentres psychoanalysis on one of the most controversial points of Freud’s theory – the concept of a self-destructive drive or ‘death instinct’.   Originally published in 1991, Death and Desire present...

The Pregnant Virgin: A Process of Psychological Transformation

I've read this book several times over the years and taken a lot of notes in the margins. It is very deep into Jungian psychology, which can be new/different for people, but I think can still be helpful and interesting for those that don't know a lot about it. It is not a traditional self-help book, for sure. But it has many ideas that can be helpful for those working with healing past wounds and wanting to grow. She uses the metapho...
