Soul Stories: Safari to Mara and Aria of the Horned Toad

News Release

From the author of Out of the Shadows: A Story of Toni Wolff and Emma Jung, Genoa House brings you:

Soul Stories
Safari to Mara &
Aria of the Horned Toad
by Elizabeth Clark-Stern

"The characters in Soul Stories are so alive and compelling that they jump off the page right into your heart. Clark-Stern has the rare ability to blend her imaginative poetic voice with exciting page turning plots. Soul Stories will not only touch and engage young readers but are great adventures that will appeal to all ages."
—Beverly Olevin, winner of Kirkus Discoveries Best Fiction 2010 The Good Side of Bad

Soul Stories explores two worlds: the world we know with our feelings and senses -- sight, scent, touch, belonging, joy, loss, renewal -- and the parallel world of dreams, intuition, imagination, and the dimension of the unknown. Together these realms inform, shape, challenge, and nurture the soul.

Out of the Shadows performance in Seattle

Out of the Shadows: A Story of Toni Wolff and Emma JungMars Hill Graduate School and Elizabeth Clark Stern present:
A Play By Elizabeth Clark Stern

Performance is May 7, 2011 (time and directions below)

The year is 1910. The work of Sigmund Freud, and his heir-apparent, Carl Jung, are transforming the way the world thinks about human nature and the inner recesses of the mind. It is a time of experimentation, expansion, and new frontiers of intellectual power. Into the heart of this world steps a 22 year old woman, a new patient of the now famous analyst, Carl Jung. Toni Wolff brings a new voice into this creative vortex that also includes Jung’s wife, Emma. The three of them form an unconventional triangle where the women compete for the role of Jung’s intellectual muse with more passion than they care about who shares his bed.

Who were these women to each other? We know that both were intellectual, independent, self-educated, at a time when Swiss women did not attend university. They were arguably quite hungry for another woman to talk to about ideas.
