Farming Soul: A Tale of Initiation
A psychological and spiritual reckoning, Farming Soul, by practicing Jungian analyst and Demeter certified biodynamic organic farmer Patricia Damery, questions theories and assumptions dating back to the early 1900's and the days of Freud, assumptions which have too often separated spirituality from psychology. Suffering the trials of her own individuation process, Patricia Damery finds answers through a series of unconventional teachers and her relationship to the psyche and to the land – answers that are surprisingly deeply intertwined. A tightly woven tale of wisdom, insight, courage and integrity, one thread of Farming Soul is about redeveloping a relationship to the land – Mother Earth – and a path into subtle energy through biodynamic agriculture and the philosophy of Rudolph Steiner. This path contains continual echoes of Damery’s childhood on a Midwestern farm. It integrates stories from across a lifetime – six generations in working the land – and the reclaiming of her connection to the soil she inhabits. Another thread is about Damery's professional path of becoming a Jungian analyst, a path filled with review committees and unexpected and unorthodox teachers. It offers perspective on the complicated dynamic of the therapist/patient bond and individuation, and a personal account of when one must step out on one's own. Uniquely blending psychology, spirituality and agriculture into a soul-nourishing and thought-provoking read, Farming Soul touches upon important themes such as: Our environmental crisis is a crisis of consciousness Practical solutions involve developing spiritually Developing spiritually means developing tools we have latent within us along with our existing developed thinking We must listen to the earth We can trust the knowledge within to take us where we need to go
