The Unseen Partner: Love & Longing in the Unconscious
By: Diane Croft
For three years, Diane Croft had access to a hidden, animated realm described by C.G. Jung as “the collective unconscious,” where she took part in an initiatory process of death and rebirth, as retold by countless others — from Dante’s journey to the underworld to Rumi’s ecstatic encounter with the Beloved. Her beautifully illustrated book of Eros-awareness speaks the metaphoric language of symbol, art, and poetry. Follow Croft’s uniquely embodied experience of a universal reality outside the boundaries of time and space, and discover the source of our longing for an Other that lies within.

The Unseen Partner records one woman’s descent into the archetypal realm of the unconscious, guided by an unseen presence felt as both “within” and “beyond.” For three years, Croft was pulled into an energy field–the sacred temple at the center of the psyche–and captured the poetic voice she heard there. Drawing heavily on the discoveries of C.G. Jung, as recounted in his Red Book, this book reveals mysteries that reside in the collective unconscious, waiting to break through to the consciousness and be lived.
