House of Rivendell
By all accounts, we are a narrowly focused, niche publisher for the lone writer of creative nonfiction books that explore the Transcendent Function or collaboration of the conscious and the unconscious—the process at the heart of Carl Jung’s theory of psychological growth, by which one is guided, thru Active Imagination or dialogue with the unconscious, toward the person one is meant to be.
But underneath this guise, we are a zany mix of a Catholic contemplative, a Jungian pacifist and the Mad Hatter—with a smidgen of Zen thrown in for good measure—rolled into one who has been through the Looking Glass and come back with a vision that is reflected in the writing of our signature book, A Different Kind of Sentinel. It is the vision of a borderline schizophrenic OCDer whose multiple personality disorder does not keep him from hearing new voices but actually assists him in seeing what no one else can see in a book. And that insight limits what this multiplicity of personalities will accept in a book to those book length works that truly reflect the look and the feel of what really goes on behind the Looking Glass.
