Introducing the book The heroines journey by Maureen Murdoch
“The depth of being a woman; A book on the quest for perfection by Maureen Murdoch (1945) answers the question of why successful women do not feel satisfied despite their many social successes. We have heard over and over again from women in their thirties to forties who are dissatisfied with their success in the job market.
They express this dissatisfaction in the form of feelings of uselessness, emptiness, helplessness and even feelings of betrayal. These women have embraced the usual way of life of men, which we call the reform of the “men’s heroic journey,” and have achieved academic, artistic, or financial success, but for many the question remains, what is the use of all this effort? In fact, the motivation to succeed in life has forced these women to face the stress of overwork, fatigue, burnout, and stress-related illnesses, and as a result they do not yet know how to get out of this predicament.
They did not expect such an outcome when they first sought success and the approval and admiration of others. Interestingly, when such women return home after retirement, no one is happy and waiting for them, and if you take a look at their outside life, they no longer feel encouraged by men to do their jobs.
In a word, they feel they have lost their life. Maureen Murdoch, the author of the book, who is a victim of men’s travel, draws a map of the “female heroic journey” in this book. Using the theory of analytical psychology by Carl Gustav Jung, she presents a map that gives women a sense of movement on the path of evolution while at the same time feeling satisfied and satisfied with the path.
Introduction to the book The heroines journey
Modern men and women feel a strange vacuum within themselves. They think that for various reasons they have lost their delicate feminine nature and not feeling this feminine spirit has created a big gap in them like an open wound. They are unaware of the fact that wherever there is such a deficiency, gap or play wound, the healing of this wound must be sought in the blood of the wound itself – within and within the meaning of this wound.
The ancient alchemists believed that “no medicine should be made except from the wound itself.” Thus, the vacuum of energy and feminine nature can not be cured by connecting with the masculine nature outside of oneself, but on the contrary, it is necessary to heal it by internal connection, by merging the female parts, and by remembering or reuniting the mother and daughter psyche.
Introducing the book The heroines journey
We have heard many times from successful women in the labor market expressing dissatisfaction. They express this dissatisfaction in the form of feelings of helplessness, emptiness, helplessness and even feelings of betrayal. They did not expect such an outcome when they sought success and the approval and admiration of others. Interestingly, when such women return home after retirement, no one is happy and waiting for them, and if they take a look at their external life, they no longer feel encouraged by men to do their jobs.
In a word, they feel they have lost their life. The book Deep Woman gives a map to a woman that gives her a sense of movement on the path of evolution and at the same time a sense of satisfaction and satisfaction with the process. In the depths of being a woman, the root of the issue is that where is the cause of conflicts between mothers and daughters, which is the source of attention to male values and ignoring female values? One who deeply realizes that he is a woman can deeply recognize his feminine values first and then live them.
Because the feeling of satisfaction in a woman’s life depends on it. The Culture of Life Foundation has published the book The Deepness of Being a Woman in Iran with the official permission of its author. The book Deep Practice for Being a Woman next to this book will help you to understand the meanings of this book more deeply. Also, for those who want to listen to the audiobook of this collection, a deep audio CD of being a woman is available.
