Stepping Out of the Shadows: Naming and Claiming the Medial Woman Today
the new book from Roberta B. Corson
Medial women are highly intuitive and perceive what most do not. They gain insight from the unconscious through the irrational such as visions, voices, dreams, images, and bodily perceptions. The medial tends to live between worlds: between the unconscious and the conscious; between the past, the present, and the future; between the spiritual and material realms; and between life and death. Her knowing is universal rather than personal, and her task is to translate the messages she hears and knows to the larger community.
Yet the medial archetype is neither understood nor honored in mainstream culture, and many women today unknowingly have made choices that have not served their medial nature. In this groundbreaking and engaging work, Roberta Bassett Corson invites medial women out of the shadows and into a deeper understanding and appreciation of their essence, and inspires medial women who may have been bruised by a cultural wariness of the irrational and mysterious to name and claim their giftedness.
