Guilford psychotherapist Lianne Escher, MSW has just launched A Mythic Sisterhood: The Goddess Way to Courage, Clarity and Grace. The book showcases the inspiring life lessons of 7 Greek Goddesses whose savvy coping techniques are as relevant today as they were when Aphrodite charmed the Gods and Artemis lived by her wits and physical prowess.
The book with it’s authoritative writing and abundance of anecdotes will help women forge ahead with creativity, responsibility, commitment, purpose, introspection, sensuality and action through the mentoring stories of Persephone, Demeter, Aphrodite, Hera, Athena, Artemis, and Hestia — the mythic sisterhood of goddesses.
“Whether pushing 30, staring down 50, or about to hit 75, evolutionary women are reinventing themselves every 10 to 15 years, reconfiguring their life choices, and who they want to become,” Escher says.
For 35 years, Escher’s professional focus has been women in transition. She earned a MSW from Smith College School for Social Work, and interned at Yale University. She’s also conducted workshops at retreat centers around New England on women and addiction, female spirituality, and the psychology of Carl Jung. She recently launched her own Rockrimmon Retreats Center in North Guilford, an intimate space available for other practitioners and workshop leaders—writers, artists, and those who have something to share.
In addition to her work as a psychotherapist, Escher is also an artist, who trained for 20 years with Italian master painter Alex Shundi in New York and for the last six years with master painter Gwen Fox in Taos, New Mexico. The book is beautifully illustrated with the author’s original artwork.
