A World Weary Woman is one whose characteristic response to stress is to struggle to achieve ambitious goals. To achieve means to succeed atsomething that is recognized and rewarded by thecollective. However, she feels little joy in the process,suffering a disconnection from her feminine body wisdomand her creativity. Her task is to find a way of living authentically that allows her to express what awakens herheart.
Many Type A women are World Weary. They are seekers.It is this soulful quest for further development that informstheir progression. World Weary Woman is not content tolive mech-anically. The provisional life exhausts her and sheknows it. She must detach from who she has been, in orderto discover who she is meant to be. (See excerpt in Jungat Heart, no. 35)
