Myths are fascinating stories that become even more intriguing when we realize that they can reveal intimate truths about ourselves and others. Jean Shinoda Bolen brings the Greek pantheon to life as our inner archetypes and applies the power of myth to our personal lives. Once we understand the natural progression from myth to archetype to personal psychology, and realize that positive gifts and negative tendencies are qualities associated with a particular goddess within, we gain powerful insights.

Depending on which goddess is more active within, one woman might be more committed to achieving professional success, while another more fulfilled as a wife and mother. Bolen teaches women how to decide which qualities to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes to become a better heroine in their own life stories.

Reviews and Endorsements:

“Every woman will find herself in one or more of the Greek heroines, and no woman...will find herself criticized. Godesses in Everywoman supplies powerful concrete images that can be used effectively to produce self-understanding and change. Highly recommeneded.” — ALA Booklist

“The highest value of Goddesses in Everywoman lies in the moments of recognition it provides. The author labels them as moments of “Aha!’: that insightful second when we understand and internalize; when we recognize what we ourselves have experienced, feel trust because of that truth, and then are taken one step further to an understanding of ‘Yes, that’s why.’” — Gloria Steinem

“A glorious book. Jean Shinoda Bolen’s weaving of myth, science and keen observation makes this an outstanding contribution to the humanities.” — Rita Mae Brown
