I found this book on the internet. It sounded intriguing, so I ordered it. I have no opinion yet, since I haven't yet received the book. However, because the subject is the descent of Inanna, I wanted to share it with our group. Sylvia Brinton Perera is a Jungian analyst. It lists for $25, but I found a copy for $6.oo on

Descent to the Goddess: A Way of Initiation for WomenSylvia Brinton Perera (New York)
ISBN 0-919123-05-8. Index. 112 pp. 1981. Pioneer study of the need for an inner female authority in a masculine- oriented society. Interprets the journey into the underworld of Inanna-Ishtar, Goddess of Heaven and Earth, to see Ereshkigal, her dark sister. So must modern women descend into the depths of themselves.

Happy Mother's Day to all of us...
