Healing of Men (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analyst), James Hollis. “Saturn was the Roman god who ate his children to stop them from usurping his power. Men have been psychologically and spiritually wounded by this. Hollis offers a rich perspective on the secrets men carry in their hearts.
From the book: “What are the consequences of not trusting our feelings? For many men this leads to confusion about what we truly need in our lives. How can we be clear about what we want to establish as goals for the future? This confusion may result in following a path that is dictated to us by the norms of society rather than by our own inner feelings. Many midlife crises stem from our decisions to pursue wealth and prestige rather than our interests, that is, those endeavours that truly make us feel fulfilled.” (P.76)
