Publisher Comments:

Just as women used to be unconscious of the powerful effects that cultural stereotypes had on them, they may also be unconscious of powerful forces within them that influence what they do and how they feel, and which account for major differences among women. Psychoanalyst Jean Bolen believes that an understanding of these inner patterns and their interrelationships offers reassuring, true-to-life alternatives that take women far beyond such restrictive dichotomies as masculine/feminine, mother/lover, careerist/housewife. And she demonstrates how understanding them can provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness. Dr. Bolen introduces these patterns in the guise of seven archetypal goddesses, or personality types, with whom all women will identify. Goddesses in Everywoman shows readers how to identify their ruling goddesses (from the autonomous Artemis and the cool Athena to the nurturing Demeter and the creative Aphrodite), how to decide which to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes to become better "heroines" in their own life stories.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 313-320) and index.

Jewel in PDX, December 6, 2010 (view all comments by Jewel in PDX)
This is a great book on the Jungian psychology of archetypes that talks specificially to women. This author gives a great breakdown of the seven major female players in Greek mythology and then proceeds to show you how this applies in the present to real people. I've recommended it to my friends.
