Celibacy and Soul

By: Susan J. Pollard


“In Celibacy and Soul, Jungian analyst Susan Pollard presents us with a rich and moving reflection on the meaning of a life of spiritual celibacy. Drawing on many sources (psychology, philosophy, mysticism, mythology, poetry) she offers us an encompassing, multicultural perspective on what is nowadays a poorly understood choice of life. An honest, courageous, and deeply helpful book for anyone faced with the challenges of chaste celibacy.” — Diane Cousineau Brutsche, Ph.D., Jungian training and supervising analyst, International School for Analytical Psychology Zurich.

Celibacy and Soul: Exploring the Depths of Chastity is for women and men who have chosen to live into celibate chastity. It is also for those people who live celibate love, and though not vowed to a religious calling, know the way of celibate love as their path. You may find yourself celibate not by choice or you may hope it is a temporary stage. Perhaps life interrupted your plans with the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, the situation of illness, the trauma of abuse, or you simply didn’t settle with the desired partner and you want to find meaning in your life as a celibate person. Celibacy and Soul is also useful for those in the helping professions, as the work of a therapist asks a celibate kind of loving that can be catalyst for change in both clients and practitioners.
