Chiron: The Wisdom of a Deeply Open Heart presents a thorough examination of the psychological, mythological and evolutionary meanings in the symbol of Chiron based in Gainsburg’s extensive clinical experience working with individuals and couples. He lays out the Chironic landscape of the Soul by examining the origin of the ‘sacred wound,’ the psyche’s defenses and emotional reality of the wound resurfacing later in life, and how the wound becomes our ‘sacred medicine’ or our unique and embodied wisdom. Most notable is Gainsburg’s original method of effectively interpreting Chiron’s polarity position within an evolution of consciousness framework.
This book is recommended especially for those who have reached the awareness that their next leap in consciousness is in fact predicated on their next surrender of ego story. The greater the ability to surrender oneself to the truth, the deeper one’s realization of truth will be.
