Reviews on Harriet Mohr’s books:
“What the Soul Teaches is uncomplicated wisdom at its best. A collection of gems.”
– Larry Dossey, M.D. Author of many books.
“Myths are statements or stories that address the core issues of human existence and have behavioral consequences. Some myths are epic sagas but others expressed their meaning in one or two sentences. Examples of the latter would be proverbs, maxims, epigrams, and aphorisms. In former centuries, western (and even eastern) mythology (for the most part) has been male- centered, male-directed, and male-authored. Harriet Mohr has attempted to redress this imbalance by providing her readers with a series of epigrams written in a feminine voice. Simultaneously delightful and profound, her book can be profitably (and pleasurably) read by members of both genders, providing the direction and balance that has been too long absent in technological, industrialized societies.”
– Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Saybrook University, San Francisco, is a fellow in four American Psychological Association divisions, and past-president of two divisions. He is author and co-author of many books and articles.
“In modern terms only the psychology of C.G. Jung could explain the inner appeal to the deep Self, and the revelations concerning the especially feminine aspects of individuation. I recommend these spiritual teachings to all readers of all ages and in all walks of life.”
– Donald P. Sandner, M.D., past president of the C.G. Jung Institute. Author of several books.
“The style is wonderful, the thoughts profound, and the presentation is such that makes the concept really accessible to anyone reading it.
The whole idea of Echad is that all the parts are really one, because of the Divine spark in everything, and because Elokim – G-d in nature – is really the same as Havaye, the ein sof. I think you really capture that in a way that can be understood by anyone.”
- Rabbi Yosef Levin
Director, Chabad of Greater South Ba
“Harriet Mohr has created a unique and inspiring artwork. With surprising depth, her simple aphorisms take us into new places of inner awareness of ourselves.”
– Dwight H. Judy, Ph.D., Chair of External Studies, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology
“This slim volume reminds us through its good words of the most important teaching of all: that the one road to be taken lives within your own heart.”
-Jane Hirshfield, Renowned award winning author of eight collections of poetry
“This little book is filled with inspiration, guidance, wisdom and caring.”
– Morton Kelsey, Jungian therapist, author of more than 30 books, counselor, religious writer and Episcopal priest.
