Beyond the hero : classic stories of men in search of soul by Allan B Chinen( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and Chinese and held by 302 libraries worldwide
"Some men yearn for an earlier time when heroes were honored by all, when patriarchs ruled over women and nations. But, deep in their souls, most men today know that they cannot turn back the clock. Together in small groups, or alone in their own hearts, they are seeking a path beyond traditional male hegemony, beyond the solitary hero - a path toward a vital yet compassionate masculinity." "This quest is not a recent invention, a result of the men's movement or of feminism. Instead, it has appeared in tales throughout history. As Dr. Allan Chinen tells these stories - from France, Morocco, Germany, Italy, Russia - readers will meet archetypes such as the wizard, the hunter, the shaman, and especially the Trickster. These male figures are healers rather than heroes, communicators rather than conquerors, explorers rather than exploiters. They are fierce but avoid violence; they are independent but related to the feminine; they are wild but nurturing." "Beyond the Hero points the way toward a deeper, seasoned masculinity, and offers both men and women the hope of a more authentic way of life."--Jacket

After surveying the Western roots of transpersonal psychiatry and psychology in William James, Carl Jung, and Christian and Jewish mysticism, the book reviews the rich contributions of such differing cultures as shamanism, Hinduism, and Buddhism, illustrating the influence of these traditions on the therapeutic community. The authors then proceed to the latest scientific research on meditation, psychedelics, altered states, and parapsychology
Waking the world : classic tales of women and the heroic feminine by Allan B Chinen( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 231 libraries worldwide
In familiar fairy tales such as "Sleeping Beauty" and "Snow White," a captivating maiden falls under an evil spell - usually cast by a wicked, older woman - and sleeps as if dead until a valiant hero awakens her. Not so in the stories discussed in this book! Chosen from some seven thousand read by the author, these stories focus on mature women and set traditional plots on their pretty little ears. In these stories it is the man who sleeps, and the woman who must break the spell that imprisons both king and kingdom. Psychiatrist A.B. Chinen has collected tales from Germany, Iraq, Italy, Japan, Russia, Siberia, and Swaziland whose themes are the rigors of womanhood rather than the fantasies of adolescence. Their protagonists face challenges that are universally recognized, sometimes shocking, and always catalysts of transformation. Brutalized women transform cruel husbands, and unfaithful wives reform themselves. Trusting daughters are mutilated by their fathers, and clever sisters outwit sultans. There are good men and bad, virtuous mothers and treacherous crones. And always there is complexity and duality, sunlight and shadow, iniquity and redemption. Dr. Chinen has chosen unfamiliar versions of well-known stories to present afresh the ancient wisdom they contain. With commentaries drawn from his clinical experience and literature from around the world, he skewers stereotypes and challenges us to rethink our concept of authentic womanhood. Waking the World reminds readers that there is more to women's culture and mythology than spinning wheels, pricked fingers, and spellbound sleep. There is unwavering vigilance, a passion not only to survive but to prevail, and within every woman's throat, a clarion cry to awaken and galvanize the world
