"When Helen Luke's voice gives body to Helen Luke's words, we touch the substance of her life experience and the eternal source that gives it meaning. These tapes revive the truest of oral traditions." - Peter Brook

The following four titles are available from the Apple Farm Community.

The Way of Story: Myths and Stories for the Inner Life (3CD SET)
The last in a series of audio recordings by Jungian psychologist and author Helen M. Luke, made shortly before her death in 1995 at the age of ninety. These readings, remarkably penetrating, reveal the breadth of Luke's life and work. $24.00



The Way of Woman: And Other Essays (3CD SET)
Helen Luke brings the full breadth of her experience to these absorbing readings on the changing role of women in society. With the rich, expressive voice of a true elder, Luke guides women to seek the realization of their essential feminine natures and to recognize the fundamental psychic dif­ferences between women and men. $24.00

 

Old Age: Journey Into Simplicity (3CD SET)
An illuminating set of essays by Helen M. Luke dealing with the gifts of the spirit that the journey into old age can bring us. Drawing on masterworks by Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, and T.S. Eliot, Luke presents old age as a time not of endings but of beginnings and new insights. $24.00



A Sense Of The Sacred (DVD)
A portrait of one of our foremost writers on the subject of story as it relates to our inner life, our masculine and feminine natures, and the natures of the human journey towards wholeness. $26.00
