Description:

This provocative look at love and pain asks some hard questions. Why do we fear love? Why are we never satisfied? Why do we hurt those close to us? How do we invite betrayal? What can we learn about ourselves from eroticism, abandonment, solitude? What unconscious drives are at work in seduction, jealousy, the desire for power? Is there a connection between love, suffering and creativity? Here the reader meets his or her most intimate images, some heart warming, some unsettling. Within the context of that encounter we are offered a perspective that illumines countless dark moments in our experience of ourselves and others. At the still point where passion and terror originate sits the crucible of transformation in which are reshaped the joys and torments of both past and future.There is treasure in the darkness, and this book brings it to light.
