One cause of the behavioral, emotional and mental torment in a person's life is the psychological trauma that results from the actions and words of parents and others. This volume, "Grendel and His Mother: Healing the Traumas of Childhood Through Dreams, Imagery and Hypnosis" by Nicholas E. Brink examines the effect of such trauma on a child's development and how the resulting torment eventually brings this child as an adult to psychotherapy. This trauma may be as subtle as a parental sigh of disappointment or as direct as physical or sexual abuse. Six clients are then led on a journeying through the unconscious mind using dream work, hypnosis and imagery in the course of therapy to uncover and heal these traumas to free the client of torment.

Most people live with the asumption that man is the high point of life on Earth. Our technologies and ingenious inventions give further credability to what seems so self evident. Yet there is a dark side to our progress. We are exploiting the planet and it is inevitable that many resources will run out. Could man evolve differently? Is there a higher being in each of us that needs to be honored? Can we only do this by cultivating a different part of our mind? Journey along with Professor Eric Parker as he encounters a revolutionary discovery, the missing link, and weaves a new meaning to the age old question of what it means to be fully human. Will Parker be able to escape the death threats of fundamentalist zealots? Will he be able to save this recently discovered species from extinction fabricated by those who reject the idea of evolution in favor of special creation ? Will Parker find a way to make his life a more sacred experience? See how one person's search for meaning can survive in a world of conventional answers.

An amber bead. A gold and glass drinking horn. A ring engraved with Thor’s hammer – all artifacts from a Germanic tribe that carved a space for itself through brutality and violence on a windswept land . Brimhild weaves peace and conveys culture to the kingdom, until the secret of her birth threatens to tear apart the fragile political stability. This is her story – the tale of Grendel’s Mother. She is no monster as portrayed in the Old English epic, Beowulf. We learn her side of the story and that of her defamed child. We see the many passages of her life: the brine-baby who floated mysteriously to shore; the hall-queen presiding over the triumphant building of the golden hall Heorot and victim of sexual and political betrayal; the exiled mere-wife, who ekes out a marginal life by an uncanny bog as a healer and contends with the menacing Beowulf; and the seer, who prophesizes what will occur to her adopted people. We learn how the invasion by brutal men is not a fairy tale, but a disaster doomed to cycle relentlessly through human history. Only the surviving women can sing poignant laments, preserve a glittering culture, and provide hope for the future.

In Hero-Ego in Search of Self, Judy Anne White offers a perceptive explanation for continued interest in the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf. Building upon the earlier work of Jeffery Helterman and John Miles Foley, she argues that the sum of all confrontations between hero and monster in Beowulf equals the process of individual psychological development identified by Carl Jung as individuation. Dr. White's study proposes that the hero's struggle is the universal struggle towards self-knowledge - and that Beowulf thus resonates for the contemporary reader as it did for the poet's original audience.
