Sample text

In this illustration of Themis as the oracle of Delphi, taken from a vase that dates from the fifth century bce, Themis’s emblem is shown as an eight-pointed star inside two circles, the same image that Diana had drawn as the centre of her mandala. This discovery seemed to confirm that the goddess’s energy had indeed been guiding Diana’s analytic process throughout, entirely independently of the conscious awareness of either herself or Pamela. After the mandala appeared, Diana graduated from school on time without postponement, and received her Masters degree.

Essentially, however, the barrier is a defender of the trauma-shaken psyche of the individual, as it was for Diana against the buried Titanic emotions that seemed so negative and threatening. The damage done by abuse in childhood can be profound. Developmental neuropsychiatrists have even shown that there can be a constellation of brain abnormalities associated with it. Through the use of the electroencephalogram (EEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and developmental testing on individuals with histories of psychiatric distress and abuse as well as on so-called ‘normal subjects’, researchers have been able to show that the abused individuals had arrested development in the left hemisphere of the brain.

More directly, the concept of blood-soul and spirit-soul is analogous in Western antiquity with eros and logos; in the Chinese tradition with yin and yang, and in Christianity with body and spirit. All these great pairings have also included the fundamental differentiation between ‘feminine’ (eros, yin, body) and ‘masculine’ (logos, yang, spirit). But there is a crucial difference between the first two and the third: whereas logos and eros and yin and yang are complementary, equally essential elements in the great dance of creation, the Christian tradition came to see body and spirit as antagonists rather than vital partners.
