Integrating The Masculine and The Feminine


“The evolution of the Western mind has been founded on the repression of the feminine – on the repression of undifferentiated unitary consciousness, of the participation mystique with nature; a progressive denial on the anima mundi, of the soul of the world, of the community of being, of the all-pervading, of mystery and ambiguity, of imagination, instinct, body, nature, woman – all of which the masculine has projectively identified as “Other.””           

–Richard Tarnas (American Philosopher, Cultural Historian and Professor of Philosophy and Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies, 1950-)
