The myth of Amor and Psyche – a helpful tool in understanding female sexuality
Malena Ivarsson first encountered the myth of Amor and Psyche in 1998 when she studied Jungian Psychology. Since then she has used this myth in psychotherapy with other women. She sees it is a helpful tool when you contemplate the borders of love and sexuality, when we feel emotional alienation from our partners or the loss of love. It gives a map of how we can mature and regain our joy and sensuality in love and life.”
