About This Book. . .

In Journeying with Your Archetypes, Daniel Cantor Yalowitz, Ed.D. takes
readers on a personal tour: a narrated and curated adventure and journey into
the land of C.G. Jung’s psychology, focusing on his conception of archetypes.
Intended for those unfamiliar with Jungian terminology and psychology, the lucid
writing in this book invites beginners as well as those with experience with Jung
to look deeply into the meaning beyond one’s daily activities in expanding one’s
understanding of themselves and the world. The book engages readers through
its wit and integration of films, literature, history, the arts, and story to illuminate
and clarify the book’s major points and themes.

Advance Praise for Journeying with Your Archetypes. . .
Through the time-honored image of a journey, Daniel Yalowitz invites readers to
a homecoming. As a guide, he is seasoned. As a thinker, he is both practical
and visionary. But it is as a wise friend that Daniel comes across most clearly,
reflecting a lifetime of experience. His work with archetypes is timely and
thoughtful, inviting readers to discover the possibilities of relating the mythic to
the everyday.

This is a wise, accessible, and beautifully written overview of the archetypal basis
of Jungian psychology. I especially appreciate the embrace of paradox, the
unknown, and questions as openings to it all. As someone who has known
Daniel Cantor Yalowitz for many years as a gifted professor of human
development, education, and psychology, I did not know this dimension of his
life, which is so close to my own. I was delighted to read Journeying with your
Archetypes and celebrate its contributions to our understanding of Psyche and
the creative imagination.
