Nursing is truly a unique profession and transpersonal journey. Heart-centered, compassionate, and creative nurses can effectively become the kind of practitioners they desire with focused intentions that are enhanced with education and certifications. They begin to live their story the way that they envision it. This nursing anthology demonstrates the challenges and the soul searching that is involved in such endeavors— the archetypal vision quest. Collectively, these stories share many pathways to healing based upon the nurses’ direct experiences when they identify an innate call to action. These nurse pioneers and innovators stories’ interweave heroic deeds and triumphs, their challenges and heartaches, and how they are change agents in a changing world.

Appropriate to a book about archetypes, it's a book that conveys messages on multiple levels, affecting both heart and mind." Martin Rossman, MD, guided imagery pioneer and author of The Worry Solution
“This beautiful, inspirational book takes archetypal psychology to a new level, showing the reader how the archetypes can be identified and engaged in the service of personal growth and healing.

In Messages from the Archetypes, Toni Gilbert defines the meeting point between modern medicine and Tarot with enlightening results. Balancing her intuition and intellect against her solid grounding in holistic nursing, she shows us how the traditional imagery of Tarot can spark interior associations leading to new realms of meaning and healing for both client and practitioner.
~ Christine Payne-Towler, author of The Underground Stream: Esoteric Tarot Revealed
For those not familiar with the Tarot archetypes, Toni Gilbert's descriptive writing makes them easy to understand. She lends credibility to Tarot's capacity to reveal emotional and psychological information from the level of the psyche. Her real life stories are alive and insightful.
~ Susan Ezra, RN, HNC, founder of Beyond Ordinary Nursing
Toni Gilbert deftly blends the complementary disciplines of nursing and the intuitive arts. Based upon synchronicity and a caring creative process, she allows the archetypal imagery of the Tarot to gently guide clients towards manifestation of their mental, physical and spiritual health.
~ Peter Moore, editor Alternatives for Cultural Creativity Magazine
Messages from the Archetypes explains Tarot, imagery, symbolism and synchronicity in such a clear way that any person unfamiliar with the cards would get it! I particularly like the way in which Toni Gilbert weaves in different healing and energy modalities.
