Matrignosis: A Blog About Inner Wisdom

Think Pyschologically; Live Spiritually

It’s Official! May 16, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — jeanraffa @ 4:26 pm

I’m absolutely delighted to announce that It’s official! There will be a another book! Here’s the press release that Jill Swenson, my book developer, sent to Publisher’s Marketplace where it appeared this morning:

Congratulations to Jean Benedict Raffa who has signed a contract for a new book with Schiffer Publishing. The Soul’s Twins offers a self-guided journey to wholeness and enlightenment by transcending masculine-feminine oppositions. Drawing on archetypes rooted in wisdom traditions from world religions, Raffa offers a reference guide and spiritual road map to become your whole authentic self by integrating the full potential of your soul’s twins. Heal your conflicts, create more loving relationships, and grow into psychological and spiritual maturity.

Jean Benedict Raffa is the author of The Bridge to Wholeness: A Feminine Alternative to the Hero Myth, Dream Theatres of the Soul: Empowering the Feminine through Jungian Dreamwork, and Healing the Sacred Divide: Making Peace with Ourselves, Each Other, and the World, which received the 2013 Wilbur Award from the Religion Communicators Council for excellence in communicating religious faith and values in the public arena and for encouraging understanding among faith groups on a national level.

I couldn’t be more honored that to have Schiffer as my next publisher. They are an old and highly respected independent publisher with a large list of books and a wide, diverse audience. I’m especially impressed with the high quality of their books: the beautifully reproduced images, excellent paper, and coffee-table worthy formats and designs.

This book is far from finished and we have not established a publication date yet. Once I’ve completed the writing, there will still be much to be done. I’m afraid I’ll be obsessed with it for at least a year and a half, so although I’ll be visiting my sites from time to time, you’re not likely to see much of me on social media.

Just know that I am here and happy and well, and that I’ll be checking in with you from time to time. And if you don’t hear from me for a while, don’t forget to think psychologically and live spiritually.

Jean Raffa’s The Bridge to Wholeness and Dream Theatres of the Soul are at Amazon. E-book versions are also at KoboBarnes And Noble and Smashwords. Healing the Sacred Divide can be found at Amazon and Larson Publications, Inc.

    Jeanie! I am so thrilled! It will be on bookshelf…after I read it…for sure. I will buy a copy and, hopefully, get it signed when I’m in Florida this fall…depending on your schedule, of course.

    Much love,

    Jenna

    This sounds like such an exciting book! I’ll be “holding you in the Light” (Quaker-style prayer) as you complete the writing and create this magical gift to the world, Jean. Looking forward to it when it comes out!

    Congratulations from Australia – as winter approaches here.
    May the light and warmth of summer support you through these next months. And then may autumn and winter continue to invite you deeper and deeper into the Within.
    In New Zealand ‘Kia Kaha’ is a blessing. It loosely translates as ‘Stay strong’. Kia Kaha, Jean.

      Oh, I love that blessing! I’ll keep it in mind as I write….I think I may need to get a fountain pen! That would give me time to pause and listen to the words from my heart, wouldn’t it? Thank you, Susan

  14. Huge congratulations Jeanie! Your book is now at the top of my cosmic order list! Like Brian, I can hardly wait, but I will … beyond excitement! Your energy and excitement inspires me to put my own “Animus Diet” into book form! Oh my Goddess, keep stirring Her pot and long may your knowing dreams, visions and intuitions continue to guide you along the way! In soul, Deborah.

      Thank you, Que. It’s exciting, and frankly, a bit intimidating. There’s so much to do and I’m a slow writer. I’ll be needing to spend a lot more time in my cave! (Of course, I love it in there!)
