"Written by an experienced practitioner, this book offers spiritual directors a road map to becoming more fully conscious and proficient in their work, helps directees learn to discern the good director from the not-so-good, and teaches both director and directee how to cope in less-than-ideal spiritual-direction situations. The author describes the four heroic archetypes - Sovereign, Warrior, Seer, Lover - and the antiheroic archetypes associated with each of them."--BOOK JACKET.
