About the Author

Marcia D-S. Dobson has PhDs in Classical Philology and Clinical Psychology. She has been an award-winning Professor of Classics at Colorado College for over forty years and has a private psychotherapy practice in Colorado Springs, Colorado.


‘In a book that wells up from the depths of personal loss as well as the ocean of transpersonal experience, Marcia D-S. Dobson forges an intimate bond with the reader through her vatic voice. As both a professor of classics and a healer of souls, she carries her caduceus across the threshold between not only the conscious and unconscious but also the archaic and analytic.’Peter L. Rudnytsky, University of Florida and the Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute, author of Mutual Analysis: Ferenczi, Severn, and the Origins of Trauma Theory‘This uplifting volume aims to restore the transformative realms of sacred liminality by summoning the feminine-maternal element as a sublime source of healing and the evolving of the human spirit. It will bring its grateful readers a joyful faith in creative subjectivity and an ethical humanity.’Raanan Kulka, head, Human Spirit – Psychoanalytic-Buddhist Training Program, Israel, and author of Kohut 2019 Memorial Lecture, Selfobject psychology for a Troubled World
