KIRKUS REVIEW

This ""Mystical Interpretation of Reincarnation"" is introduced by Gina Cerminara who has also explored experience in these upper reaches. Miss Jones is a practicing psychic who takes a ""symbolic view of reality"" and deals, not in mundane matters, but in ""universal values."" Some of this has a certain parallelism with the work of Jung. Her book, a collection of what she calls ""cyclical readings"" from her practice, is a series of commentaries followed by illustrative fables, infused with strong, mythic elements. They all involve a continuum of mystical-philosophical illuminations on rebirth and renascence, the human soul and/or the immortal soul, Karma and its sequential stages, etc., etc. At the close there is a key to the symbols in the stories along with selected readings in the field and a bibliography. Her book will presuppose the predisposed reader.
