ORACLES SPEAK: Understanding the Signs and Symbols All
Around Us - Dianne
Skafte Ph.D. Now in Paperback. "Provocative
and original. Essential reading for anyone seeking to penetrate the
mysteries of consciousness."-Robert Johnson, author of He, She
Say you're driving down the road, musing over a big question - take the job, marry, sell the house, move to the city? Suddenly you pass a billboard with huge words, "GO FOR IT!" Startled, you have the strange feeling you've just received your answer. Ever had such an experience? This book can help you understand it.
"The ancient oracles haven't stopped speaking," says Dianne Skafte. "We've just stopped listening." Ancient peoples understood that patterns in nature, dreams, the sudden animal or bird, or a chance word overheard could all advise, warn, or point the way. They still can. This spellbinding history of divination is also a hands-on guide for awakening our own perceptive powers. Its extensive research coupled with insights of C.G.Jung, James Hillman, and other depth psychologists shows us how to prepare for, interpret, and trust oracles. When we do, we may find that life is full of illumination and guidance from some mysterious source beyond the personal self.
Dianne Skafte, Ph.D., teaches depth psychology and chairs the Clinical Psychology Program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara.
