The full title of this lecture, given on February 18, 2006, is: "The Queen of Heaven and Her Wild Cherry Sister: How to Realize Lesbian Eros through Partnership with the Feminine Double -- Fundamental Ideas for Psychotherapy and Inner Work." It was the second talk in a series called "Singing the Heavenly Muse of Lesbian Individuation for All Women: Introductory Series on the Theory and Practice of Sapphic Psychoanalysis," and was presented by Sandra Golvin, JD, LMFT, a Los Angeles-based psychotherapist and educator who was at the time in the process of developing an authentic lesbian-centered psychology as well as a new organization to support such a development, which was called The Center for Sapphic Psychoanalytic Studies. Sandra's work was in large part a re-interpretation for lesbians of the work Mitch Walker had previously done for gay male psychology, and her Center, along with this lecture series, was sponsored by the Institute for Contemporary Uranian Psychoanalysis, which Mitch Walker co-founded in 2005 (www.uranianpsych.org). But tragedy struck during the planning for this lecture series, as Sandra was diagnosed with ocular melanoma. Despite the rapid deterioration of her health, Sandra courageously moved forward with developing her ideas in these lectures. She passed away on August 3, 2006, but she leaves behind a remarkable inspiration around the possibilities for further development of lesbian-centered psychology.
