At a time when we are witnessing the return of the World Soul, the rise of feminine consciousness and the re-enchantment of Nature, the friendship between Marion Woodman and Elinor Dickson offers us a rare glimpse into the new story yearning to be born.
Dancing at the Still Point reveals a remarkable friendship rooted in Soul that is both deeply personal and transpersonal. Prompted by a dream in which Marion told her to write about their friendship, Elinor has succeeded in weaving their shared visions, dreams and insights with the playfulness, challenges, and honesty they shared over thirty-four years.
Like all deep friendships, Marion and Elinor mirrored each other while mutually affirming their individual destinies. This is a book that celebrates the gift of friendship as a compelling model for community in these times. As Marion would say, “where soul meets soul that’s love” and love is the field in which we are all called to dance.
“Elinor Dickson has written honestly and beautifully about her long friendship with Marion Woodman. A relationship that was rooted in love and shared intellect, she masterfully describes the journey they took together to unearth some new and revealing wisdom of the Feminine.”
-Lucinda M. Vardey, Author of The Flowering of the Soul: A Book of Prayers by Women
