Jungian, neo-Jungian and quasi-Jungian - all of the following are great books for women and soul growth!

Linda Shierse Leonard
The Wounded Woman
A father wounded in his own psyche, Linda Leonard believes, often cannot adequately support his daughter in the care and guidance she needs. Using examples from her own life and her work with clients, as well as dreams, fairy tales, myths, films, and literature, Leonard charts paths toward psychological transformation and a fruitful, caring relationship between men and women, fathers and daughters — one that honors both the mutuality and the uniqueness of the sexes.

Linda Shierse Leonard
Meeting the Madwoman: An Inner Challenge for Feminine Spirit
From Publishers Weekly:
This richly evocative study by a Jungian analyst posits the existence of a madwoman archetype. The image appears frequently in women's dreams, according to Leonard. And she makes a good case that the madwoman is a messenger, metaphor and model who points the way to women's liberation. The author encourages women to acknowledge their own madwoman in order to transform themselves. She intriguingly redefines many female stereotypes --The Dark Muse, The Recluse, The Bag Lady, The Visionary, The Caged Bird -- in relation to their archetypes. In this work, she provides a new perspective on how women can break out of culturally imposed roles. Check it out

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Women Who Run With Wolves - Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
From Publishers Weekly
Folklore, fairy tales and dream symbols are called on to help restore women's neglected intuitive and instinctive abilities in this earthy first book by a Jungian analyst. According to Estes, wolves and women share a psychic bond in their fierceness, grace and devotion to mate and community. This comparison defines the archetype of the Wild Woman, a female in touch with her primitive side and able to rely on gut feelings to make choices. Check it out

Marion Woodman and Elinor Dickson
Dancing in the Flames - The Dark Goddess in the Transformation of Consciousness
" Dancing in the Flames gives us a remarkably rich and deep knowledge of the Dark Goddess. Her hidden presence in the psyches of men and women becomes visible through Marion Woodman and Elinor Dickson's perceptive insights. Seen and unseen, appreciated or denigrated, in history, myth, and culture as well as in individuals, the Dark Goddess carries transformative power and feminine wisdom, which are revealed in this beautifully conceived book that can affect the reader like a major dream or evocative poem."—Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D., author of Crossing to Avalon and Goddesses in Everywoman Check it out

Marion Woodman
Leaving My Father's House
From Library Journal
Woodman, a Jungian analyst, uses the fairy tale Allerleirauh to demonstrate the process of integrating the many parts of a personality into a whole, allowing a woman to take her active role in society and freeing her from the negative mother (or the overly critical feminine). Three women describe their process, each representing a part of the fairy tale. Their stories are heartening in their emphasis on the positive in a difficult process of healing the psychic split between feminine and masculine. As in all of her books, Woodman's piercing clarity and intelligence leaves one both wiser and inspired. Highly recommended for psychology and women's studies collections. Check it out
