What are symbols? Who invented them and why? How do they work? How can they be used as tools for self-healing and transformation? In The Healing of the Gods, Peter Lemesurier shows that the powerful symbolism of the ancient Greek gods is still alive in us all but today we call them our 'complexes' and 'neuroses'. Combining modern archetypal psychology with information culled from ancient records, the author presents an entirely original system of self-diagnosis and healing called 'theotherapy'. By learning to understand these powerful inner forces we can change our lives and become who we really are.
