Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On : The Autobiography and Journals of Helen M. Luke (January 2000)
Every life retells the hero or heroine's journey: a wondrous, sometimes painful but always necessary movement toward wholeness. What better way to understand our own experiences of growth and transformation than to hear from others who have gone before us? In Such Stuff as Dreams Are Made On Helen Luke explores the inner life through dream and imagery, story and symbol.
The first half of the book covers Luke's life from her earliest recollections until the age of seventy. It weaves together dreams and symbolic images from her inner life with accounts of personal events, including her seminal meeting with Jung. The book's second half is comprised of selections from the journals she kept during her last twenty years of life, offering a rare glimpse into a personal path of individuation.
The publishing of the autobiography and journals of one of the century's wise women is an occasion for celebration. The maps and metaphors of the inner cosmos have rarely been so richly drawn. Luke's evocation of the Dreamtime gives us new continents of mind and soul- Jean Houston Author, A Mystic Life
