"A wonderfully creative exploration of the interface between music and psyche as mediated through analytic understanding. The book covers a wealth of topics, from individual transformation, to new findings from neuroscience, to the healing powers of music’s spiritual dimensions, marvelously enhanced by a CD and a complete discography of musical references. This book opens new vistas for Jungians and non-Jungians alike interested in the nature of music’s impact and resonance in the psyche, and with psyche’s self-expression through music." -- Hester McFarland Solomon, author of Self in Transformation

"This beautiful and important book (and CD) restores sound to its essential place within the symbolic language psyche uses to express, communicate, and heal. The wide-ranging, wisely chosen contributions play off one another, reverberating to enrich the reader-listener’s understanding while inviting us to refocus on listening and being heard as essential dynamics in all relationships. We gain an auditory kaleidoscope of themes that resonate in the non-verbal, emotionally vital depths between infant and mother, client and analyst, composer and audience, individual and society. For psychotherapists in particular, the emphasis on the language of auditory data rebalances the usual focus on visual symbolism to enrich our understanding of attachment dynamics and mystical states in which emergent consciousness is directly linked into the unconscious. This is a volume I will cherish and share." -- Sylvia Perera, author of Descent to the Goddess and The Scapegoat Complex

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
