Are you interested in the hidden meanings of symbols and their impact on your psyche? If so, you will love The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images, edited by Ami Ronnberg and Kathleen Martin, and associated with the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS). This hardback book is a comprehensive and stunning collection of over 800 full-color images and original essays that explore the symbolic representations of various phenomena, such as the sun, whales, or the human hand, from all parts of the world and all eras of history.

The Book of Symbols is not a typical reference book, but a handbook of visual experience that invites you to move from the outer appearance of a symbol to its inner resonance. Written by experts from various fields, such as psychology, religion, art, literature, and mythology, the essays reveal the psychic background, etymological roots, cultural context, and paradoxical nature of each symbol. You will learn how to engage with symbols in a personal and creative way, rather than relying on fixed definitions or interpretations. The Book of Symbols is a must-have for anyone curious about the power of archetypal images.
