Waterside Productions Announces Said E. Dawlabani's New Book "The Light of Ishtar"

CARDIFF BY THE SEA, Calif. - June 17, 2021 - PRLog -- Can the reframing of life through myth help us process grief more efficiently? The answer is an unqualified YES! The Light of Ishtar is a remarkable book that examines the highs and lows of life through a modern lens on myth and psycho spirituality. The story of Ishtar is that of the universal patterns of feminine power that transcend the dual nature of existence, balancing life and death and the forces that perpetuate the cycles of our universe. Today, this archetype represents the resurrection of the power of the feminine that for centuries has been absent from our human story. This poignant memoir, draws parallels between the ancient goddess and the author's wife and soulmate, Elza Maalouf recognizing inner energies that are universal to us all. Brilliant and dynamic, they both seemed destined for greatness on the world stage―until in 2014 disaster struck.

The book draws on Joseph Campbell's hero's journey to chronicle their ascent to prominence in their respective fields as part of their mythic call to adventure. Then with rare courage the author explores the dark side of the psyche when, at age forty-nine, Elza begins descending into speechless dementia. The book explores the patterns at the heart of transformational experience: the deep wounding, the grief, and the long road to acceptance, recognizing that a life dedicated to improving the human condition does not rise above caring for one human being.

In reframing life's experience through Ishtar's powerful myth, the reader is provided with a compelling example of how we can all lead richer and extraordinary lives. The lyrical style and spiritual observations elevate perception to a place of universal awareness by demonstrating how myth, wonder, and mystery are constantly around us if we transcend the physical lens through which we usually interpret life. On the far side of such transcendence is the true meaning of love that goes beyond time and space and reveals how the coming together of the feminine and the masculine mirrors a universe in harmony and how the microcosm is no different than the macrocosm as the author and his wife take solace in their own simple pleasures as they sit companionably in their garden by the sea. The Light of Ishtar, a Story of Love, Loss and the Search for Meaning is now available in paperback and ebook edition on Amazon.
