Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money

Award winning author, Sandy Nathan, will hostess the Depth Psychology Alliance’s Book Club for the month of January 2012. This is the Club’s first meeting and an exciting event. Sandy will use her book, Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Magic, to illuminate major themes of depth psychology.

Numenon is the story of a Silicon Valley billionaire, the richest man in the world, meeting a great Native American shaman. The world of worldly  power and all it can buy is contrasted with the inner world of true riches. The book is jammed with archetypes and psychological symbolism. It is an Amazon Bestseller and won six national awards, including the prestigious Silver Nautilus Award and the Silver Medal in the IPPYs (Independent Press) Awards. It has a close to five star average reviews on Amazon.

“I am so excited by the opportunity to facilitate the Depth Psychology Alliance’s Book Club,” says Sandy Nathan. “I’ve had many wonderful, very spiritually developed readers and reviewers in the past, but none have delved into Numenon’s themes as explicitly as we’ll be doing. For instance, the first chapter of the book shows our hero, Will Duane, doing some pretty bizarre things. (Will’s a loosely defined hero, a dark and tormented person.) I’m looking forward to the group examining Will with eyes informed by depth psychology.

“Similarly, the shaman, Grandfather, is a spiritual master. How did he get that way? What shaped him? We’ll look at him––and many other characters––the same way. What made them the way they are? What keeps them going? What signs of spiritual growth do they exhibit? We’ll even look at Will’s Duane’s gargantuan corporation,  Numenon, as a “person.” What is Numenon’s culture? Values?

“You don’t have to have a degree or credentials in depth psychology  to be in the book club. You just simply have an interest in going below the surface and mining the jewels of the psyche.

“I would love it if you joined us.

“AND IT’S FREE! Yes, membership in the Alliance and Book Club are both free. I’ve even arranged a coupon to get to download an eBook of Numenon   for free. That’s available to those who sign up for the Book Club. To do so, go to this page, and click where it says, “Join the book club.”

“You’ll be able to enter the club’s discussion board when your membership is approved. I’ll be putting a LOT of information up on January 1st. I’ve got more for the next week. And the coupon to get the free download of the  Numenon eBook will be on that post,” says Sandy Nathan.

 By the way, what is Depth Psychology?  Depth Psychology focuses on the deeper parts of human experience––it concentrates on the psyche or soul. Depth Psychology seeks to know the Unconscious realm of the human mind, which is outside of our awareness and which we are unable to know directly. Our everyday awareness––the habitual way we think about ourselves and see life––collapses our experience into a collection of programmed responses. It makes TV sitcom of  something a life with is potentially grand.  A vast inner world which is largely unknown exists beneath this day to day reality. It communicates  through dreams, myths, and symbols, giving our lives great meaning and richness.  If we listen, this unseen world has much to give us. Depth Psychology is about learning to listen to our deep currents.
