1 Review
In The Wisdom of Oz, psychotherapist Gita Dorothy Morena expands upon the metaphors of America's most beloved fairy tale, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Morena, great-granddaughter of L. Frank Baum, offers unique insight into Oz as she describes the story's influence on her life and her work as a Jungian Sandplay therapist. In this publication, timed to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Morena celebrates her great-grandfather's literary gift to the world and explores passageways to psychological healing through the archetypes of Oz.
