Jung Legacy Series, Eric Neumann’s The Great Mother—with Saundra Salyer

Tonight we continue our reading of the essay “Woman as Mana Figure” and begin “Woman’s Experience of Herself and the Eleusinian Mysteries.” These ritual initiations into the underworld at Eleusis were stableover three millennia lasting into Roman times.
