Bonnie Bright M.A. talks to Jungian Analyst, Poet, and Author Naomi Ruth Lowinsky on poetry, the muse, and what drives us to create in our lives.

Naomi Ruth Lowinsky, author of "The Sister from Below: When the Muse Gets Her Way" is an analyst member of the San Francisco C.G. Jung Institute, and a widely published poet.  Naomi’s recent memoir, The Sister from Below: When the Muse Gets Her Way tells stories of her pushy muse.  Naomi is also the author of The Motherline: Every Woman’s Journey to Find her Female Roots and three books of poetry—the most recent of those is called Adagio & Lamentation and features lots of poems about her own grandmother, who was a refugee from the Shoah and a fine painter.  Naomi says her grandmother he taught her the practice of making art of one’s life.
