"A landmark application of (shamanic) wisdom to early developmental wounding where the ills of society begin. Anyone interested in the future of psychology should read this book."

Larry Dossey, MD,
Author of Prayer Is Good Medicine

"Shamans in indigenous cultures were and are also the psychologists of the community. In our culture we have split the roles. It’s time to marry the system together, and Jeannette Gagan, through her expertise, shows us how."

Sandra Ingerman, MA,
Author of Soul Retrieval, Mending the Fragmented Self

"This phenomenal book…shows how the separating and controlling energy of violence transforms into healing unity. This is ‘must read” as we work toward a world of illumination and cooperation for the coming millennium.”

Twylah Nitsch

"In these times of spiritual awakening, this book serves as a beacon lighting the path, unifying into one complete circle the cycles of pain into the realities of healing body, mind, and spirit.

The Paradoxical Return of the Feminine:

Journeys to Raise Awareness and Create Peace

by Jeannette M. Gagan, PhD

Is Peace Attainable?
This book sings yes from every page, emphasizing the power of feminine energy and providing a variety of concrete ways both men and women can cultivate feminine energy in their lives.
Chapters begin with raising awareness; practical steps follow, illuminated by the author’s narrative of personal transformation. In plain language, Dr. Gagan simplifies such complex and paradoxical truths as:
  • The return of the feminine requires balancing masculine and feminine energies
  • Spirituality and psychology are linked
  • The brain, especially its ability to create new neuronal pathways, is essential to spirituality
  • Sexuality is a potent pathway for connecting the divine energy of the universe to individual consciousness

The Paradoxical Return of the Feminine is an accessible guide for all who seek to heal themselves and bring unity into their relationships and, indeed, to the world. You, too, can say yes!
