Jean Shinoda Bolen has long made Jungian archetypal psychology relevant and understandable to readers, and is much appreciated as a storyteller who brings mythic patterns to life in listeners. Goddesses in Everywoman began as a best-seller in the United States and has been published in over thirty foreign translations. Gods in Everyman followed and completed the pantheon of Mt. Olympus—the gods and goddesses that are archetypes in all of us. They are expressed in relationships, in family dynamics, and in clinical symptoms. Personal depth and meaning have archetypal roots in these archetypes.
In this workshop, an appreciation of how myth, archetype, expression of the pattern, problems, and ways to grow come together will come through hearing Jean tell a few selected myths in depth and expand on their meaning. The result may be an aha! experience that comes when myth or symbol suddenly is about us, or about a significant relationship, or helps us to see our clients or patients with a deeper, compassionate understanding. Emphasis will also be on the relationship of these archetypes to the Self, to individuation, to living one’s personal myth, and seeing life as a soul journey.
