page break


I have used ideas and quotes from various sources including:

Parabola: The Magazine of Myth and Tradition, NY

Volume X, 1995, The Seven Deadly Sins

Volume XII, 1987, Forgiveness

The Way of Women: Awakening the Perennial Feminine

Helen M. Luke, Millenium Books, 1996

‘The Story of the Monster’ is from the above book. Apparently it had been told to the Sufi poet Rumi by his master, Shams-i-Tabriz. Rumi in turn had told it in his Discourses. Helen Luke, telling it in her turn, believed it to have particular relevance to the spiritual needs of today.

Adrienne Rich is an American poet. The lines I have quoted are from a poem called ‘Transcendental Etude’, The Dream of a Common Language, Norton & Co, NY, 1987

Hélène Cixous is a French feminist and writer.
