Format: Paperback
It's been awhile since I've posted a review, although it's with good reason. I've just finished up reading three books over the past six weeks. One of them is this book by Brendan Myers, which is an impressive 483 pages long. But don't let that scare you! Myers' book Circles of Meaning, Labyrinths of Fear is absolutely worth the read.

This book guides the reader through the various forms of relationships that we humans engage in every day. Although some are more common than others, all of them have profound impacts on the way we communicate, think, and act throughout our lives. Myers does this through the symbolism of the labyrinth, the famed maze of classical antiquity that inspires both wonder and fear.

As the book examines those various relationships, Myers explains how the relationships can become unhelpful and toxic. The relationships become clouded with fear and our ability to make the most of them becomes lost. But like any good labyrinth, there is a way out. Instead of getting trapped in these "labyrinths of fear" caused by toxic relationships, we can shift our perspective in such a way that changes the dynamic of the relationship for the good of all involved.

I write a lot of reviews for books that feel very obviously Pagan. This book is less obviously Pagan, but I would very much recommend it to any Pagan (or any spiritual person for that matter). As a coven and religious organization organizer, I often find myself in situations where I must facilitate healing between various people or at the least, understand why a spiritual or friendly relationship went sour.

An intriguing read that generated a lot of thought and discussion. Well worth the read! Whether a philosopher, theologian, or just a generally thoughtful person looking for insight into their life...this will provide a lot of food for thought.
