Never has it been so crucial for us to develop awareness of the interaction between the natural world and the power of consciousness, both individual and collective. The continuance of life on our earth depends on our capacity to understand and support the streams of energy that interconnect us with each other and with all levels of the cosmos.
My work as a Jungian analyst, as a Biodynamic farmer, and as a writer, is my effort to reside in the lively intersection between the visible and the invisible realms of matter and spirit, to nourish those interconnections that thrive with our attention.

Farming Soul questions theories and assumptions that date back to the days of Freud, assumptions which separate spirituality from psychology. Patricia Damery finds answers through unconventional teachings and her relationship to the land–answers that are astonishingly intertwined.
A transformative story about love, farming, and myth’s place in it all, Angela Tyler has spent the greater part of her life in suspension between the world of the small Midwestern farm she grew up on, and her current life in Northern California as the wife of a college professor and mother of three. When her father dies and the family farm is sold, betrayals both small and large are brought to the surface. Angela faces these betrayals and finds new ground to stand on.
A story narrated to her own foster daughter, Sophia tells of the transformative year she turned ten and met Nelda and her goat herd in the mountains above the small, mythical town of Huckleberry. They are soon joined by two homeless women, Dee and Ester. Over the next year they share in many capers, including saving Ester from a nursing home and cleaning up the trash being dumped on legendary Motorcycle Mountain. With goats involved, there are many twists and turns, but, despite tragedy, love triumphs.
Marked by Fire: Stories of the Jungian Way, is a soulful collection of essays that illuminate the inner life. Thirteen authors tell their stories about how they found their way into Jungian psychology. If we believe, with Jung, in “the reality of the psyche,” how does that shape us? The articles in Marked By Fire portray direct experiences of the unconscious; they tell life stories about the fiery process of becoming ourselves.
