Inanna--Queen of Heaven And Earth   $15.00

Inanna-book-cover With the publication of this book, we have for the first time in any modern literary form one of the most vital of ancient myths--that of Inanna (known to the Semites as Ishtar), the world's first goddess of recorded history and the beloved deity of the ancient Sumerians. In this groundbreaking work, Samuel Noah Kramer, the preeminent living expert on Sumer, and Diane Wolkstein, a gifted storyteller and folklorist, have retranslated, ordered, and combined the fragmented cuneiform tablets comprising the Cycle of Inanna to create an authentic portrait of the goddess from her adolescence to her completed womanhood and "godship." Illustrated with visual artifacts of the period, the images guide the reader through Inanna's realm on a journey parallel to the one evoked by the text. And the carefully wrought commentaries at once explicate and amplify the power, wonder, and mystery embedded in these ancient tales. Tender, erotic, and compassionate, Inanna is a compelling myth that is timely in its rediscovery.     Add To Cart

Narrative Medicine - The Use of History and Story in the Healing Process   $20.00

Narmed_1_ Lewis Mehl-Madrona's Narrative Medicine examines the foundations of the indigenous use of story as a healing modality.  Citing numerous case stories that demonstrate the profound power of narrative in healing, the author shows that when we learn to dialogue with disease, we come to understand the power of the story we tell about our illness and our possibilities for better health.  This approach also includes examining our relationships to our family and extended community to find underlying disharmony that may need healing.  Mehl-Madrona points the way to a new model of medicine-a health care system that draws its effectiveness from listening to the healing wisdom of the past and also to the present-day voices of its patients.     Add To Cart
