Life without myth, the vital force of archetypal experiences, is life filled with maladies, neuroses, addictions, and disease. Alchemy of the Soul retells the myth of Eros and Psyche to help readers reconnect mind and relatedness to find wholeness and deep meaning. Author Martin Lowenthal describes how the story of Eros and Psyche illustrates the alchemical process of marrying soul and matter so that life can be lived with more joy, meaning, and a tangible sense of divine love. The book is divided into three parts:,* Part 1 is a beautiful retelling of the myth of Eros and Psyche. * Part 2 examines the power of myth and alchemy and shows how spiritual alchemy can restore and transform the soul. * Part 3 is an initiation into the alchemical mysteries using myth as mentor.
