1 Boxes -- improvising the sacred. 2 Weaving lies and lives together -- the making of sacred text. 3 Personal events and cultural dreams -- memory and imagination. 4 The first act repeated -- myth and contemporary consciousness. 5 The flea's shoes -- mistrust of image. 6 The man-and-woman-eating plant -- imagery and iconoclasm. 7 The inward text -- dream as scripture. 8 The make-believe of belief -- deliteralizing and remythologizing

Lynda Sexson shatters cliches and enters the world of play and dreams, myth and metaphor to uncover a universe in which, through the author's story-telling power, we become open to the spontaneous recovery of sacred symbol, to the wonder of memories, to the making of sacred text and ritual, to the dream as Scripture, and most of all to the divine reality at our fingertips, where we are as we are.'
