You are invited to the launch of:

In Praise of Lilith, Eve & The Serpent In The Garden Of Eden & Other Stories by Susan Scott

This collection of essays is comprised of powerful and compelling stories in which the author deftly shows how the seemingly mundane contains the sacred within.

Susan Scott will be discussing Lilith, the first wife of Adam, and the impact that this myth from earliest times has on our contemporary world. In her perceptive and illuminating work, Susan relates five personal stories which have universal appeal as well as two further essays which provide a fascinating insight into Dreams and the ancient creation myth.

Susan Scott

“Susan has informed her book with a woman’s perspective on age-old myths and tales. She links Jungian theory with daily life events and smoothly demonstrates how both express and impact our psyches. She writes out of an intuitive sense that reveals acute awareness to the vulnerable issues composing our lives. An enchanting, enjoyable and enriching read.”

Dr Susan Schwartz, Jungian Analyst, Phoenix Arizona
