Finding a "Lower, Deeper Power" for Women in Recovery.
O'Hare-Lavin, Mary Ellen
Counseling and Values, v44 n3 p198-212 Apr 2000
Challenges the dominant admonition of recovery programs to find a "higher power," which although appropriate and helpful to many, is troubling to others searching for their own individuation process. Explores the use of the ancient Greek myths of Persephone, Psyche, Orpheus/Eurydice, and the ancient Mesopotamian myth of Inanna as alternative heroic journey motifs for individuals in search of a "lower, deeper power." (Contains 19 references and an appendix.) (Author/GCP)
