Dark, earthy, and immensely powerful, the Black Goddess has been a key force in world history, manifesting in images as diverse as the Indian goddess Kali and the Black Madonnas of medieval Europe. She embodies the energy of chaos and creativity, creation and destruction, death and rebirth. Images of Her, however, have been conspicuously missing in the Western world for centuries—until now, when awareness of the Goddess is re-arising in many spheres, from the women's movement to traditional religion, from the new discoveries of quantum physics to the dreams of ordinary men and women. Why now particularly? The answer provided by Marion Woodman and Elinor Dickson is bold and thrilling: the reemergence of the Divine Feminine in our time indicates our readiness to move to an entirely new level of consciousness. The reemerging Goddess calls for a shattering of rigid categories, a willingness to hold opposites without opposition. She calls us to marry reason and order to creativity, and to embrace the chaos that can ultimately lead to wisdom and transformation on personal and global levels.

Marion Woodman is a Jungian analyst who is internationally known as a teacher, lecturer, and workshop leader. She is the author of numerous books, including Addiction to Perfection and Leaving My Father's House.From Library Journal :
According to the authors, the "Dark Goddess" is a female figure increasingly represented in the dreams and fantasies of modern people. The appearance of this creator/destroyer goddess who presides over both birth and death can lead the dreamer to a higher consciousness and greater engagement in living. The bulk of this book outlines the progress of patients undergoing analysis, describing the ways in which the Dark Goddess figure appeared in their dreams and fantasies. Unfortunately, Jungian analyst Woodman and clinical psychologist Dickson are clearly preaching to the converted. No attempt is made to explain the central importance of dreams, nor is evidence offered to support the supposed resurgence of the Dark Goddess. Patrons of most libraries will find better explanations of Jungian psychology from a female point of view in Jean Shinoda Bolen's Goddesses in Everywoman: A New Psychology of Women (LJ 7/84) or Clarissa Pinkola Estes's Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype (LJ 6/15/92). For very specialized collections of Jungian depth psychology material.?Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, Wash.
