In this delightful, phenomenological account, Kittelson writes in lively pursuit of the language of hearing, an ode to the persistent primacy of the ear. It's right here, she says, just around the corner from our noses.
Mary Lynn Kittelson is a Jungian analyst in private practice in St. Paul, Minnesota. She studied music and literature and has Masters degrees in English literature and human development. From 1982 to 1990, she trained as an analyst in Zurich, Switzerland, where teaching English as a foreign language and "seeing" clients in German sharpened her ear. In addition to her practice, the author teaches and lectures on dreams and image work, animals in our soul, the American psyche, auditory imagery, and other Jungian topics, especially the shadow and child as image, archetype and "reality". She likes to garden, experiment vocally, write, listen, and figure things out.
