The Jewish mystical tradition regards the rituals and stories of the Holy Day cycle as symbolic representations of internal spiritual and psychological development, helping us to translate the experience into the language of contemporary psychological theories. Joel Ziff draws from his rich knowledge of psychology and his fluency with text to present us with Mirrors in Time, a practical guide that integrates the wisdom of the Jewish mystical tradition with contemporary psychological perspectives, illustrated with clinical examples. The Holy Days provide a context that offers similar opportunities to those experienced in psychotherapy, creating time to reflect upon the nature of challenges we face, and to consider how we might best respond. The texts of Jewish tradition describe a process through rituals, images, stories, and symbols. These can be difficult to understand because they are ancient, agrarian, hierarchical, and patriarchal in nature. Contemporary psychological perspectives can often articulate obscure mystical concepts. In his effort to translate the ideas of such mystical thinkers as Shneur Zalman of Lyady into a modern, twentieth-century framework, Ziff includes theories developed by Freud, Jung, Assagioli, Perls, Erickson, and their students. The unique character of each Holy Day is experienced in the context of one's journey through the year; a journey that includes births and deaths beginnings and endings, opportunities and crises, successes and failures. We recreate and reinvent ourselves, giving birth to new identity. In Mirrors in Time: A Psycho-Spiritual Journey through the Jewish Year, Joel Ziff shows us how each Holy Day represents a specific milestone in this psychospiritual process. The unique rituals, symbols, and stories of each Holy Day help us identify the particular nature and challenges of each stage as well as connecting us with the appropriate aspect of Divinity to support us in meeting those challenges.
