Arlene Landau, PhD is a native of Beverly Hills and a veteran of film, television and dance. She brings the insight of her unique biography and deep grasp of feminine typology to illuminate the dark side of Aphrodite and the Beverly Hills and Hollywood scene. In Goddesses of Sun and Moon, Karl Kerényi refers to these dark aspects as Aphrodite's "nocturnal connections" and believes that they have more to do with "night of death" than a "night of love."
An analyst member of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, Dr. Landau holds a BA in Fine Arts, Masters Degrees in Psychology and Mythological Studies, and a PhD in Mythological Studies. She is in private practice in Pacific Palisades.
