@ David~

Any other books on this subject you've read and highly recommend. I need some good material I can read on the plane for my upcoming trip overseas.

Thanks!

Im a fan of James Hollis, a Jungian analyst

I liked this book which i reference in my thesis: Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life: How to Finally, Really Grow Up

Found this interesting: "Anima and animus can be understood as the middleman (or middlewoman) between the ego and the unconscious mind. It is called the “face of the soul” because it is the face of the unconscious mind. Anima, taking the form of an ideal woman, connects men to the deepest places within them. Anima’s counter, Animus, is the male face of a female’s unconscious mind. Both serve the same function: to spark personal development and unify the conscious and unconscious sides of the mind."

Interesting to me because I always said that its his face. Always about the face, not the rest of him. The face of the unconscious mind.

@Spinnaker: You have been on this journey with me since the beginning and staying with me and giving your thoughts and opinions has helped a lot. Thank you. :ymhug:

Is it the traits of LO's anima that I have to incorporate into mine or male traits in general?
An example would be aggressiveness in males, which I never saw in LO, mainly passive aggressive/passive.
