Breaking Glass

Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus, Jan 22, 2012

The process of individuation which one can experience in mid or post mid-life involves the total breakdown of the persona. It cracks and crumbles, no longer able to contain all that is going on in the psyche. And presumably, or so I have read, after the breakdown and fragmentation, one becomes whole.

Emergence

How do you write about the drama that is occurring in the inner world - the rich and complex landscape of dreams, active imagination and synchroncities?

Making Amends: Ringing the Bells That Still Can Ring

Marsha Rosenzweig Pincus, Jan 22, 2012

First we have the Earth, where disruptive earthquakes make it a dynamic planet. If we zoom in on the humans that inhabit the planet, we see that they too must bend and break according to stress to be dynamic beings. . . . 

Feels of Time

Rumour has it that time goes in a cycle . . .

Breaking Down Limitations

Molly Mac Dougall, Sep 10, 2013
