This is the new release from Chiron Publications.
The book titled „Quest for the Mead of Poetry: Menstrual Symbolism in Icelandic Folk and Fairy Tales” is a translation and interpretation of seven Icelandic tales that examine the tabooed menstrual flow of women.
Hallfridur J. Ragnheidardottir is a poet and a dreamworker with M.A. in Icelandic literature. In her master’s thesis she explored her mythological heritage through the lens of Jungian psychology. It was the beginning of an adventurous journey in search of her own music. In this book, she gives voice to her passion for myth, dreams, tarot and poetry. From 1970 her life has been divided between New York and Reykjavik, where she and her husband have now settled. Their son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons live in New York, keeping alive the connection between the two cities. She will be a speaker at the upcoming Snakes, Dragons, and Other Scaly Creatures Conference at the C. G. Jung Center of New York.
