Archetypes of the Goddess – Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D.

 Conversation about the universal female archetypes that characterize most women.  The Gods and Goddesses of ancient Greece,  says our guest, is a “myth that never was but is always happening”, meaning that the personalities of the ancient Gods and Goddesses summarize the fundamental archetypes through which humans think and act, even if they are not conscious of it.   Jean Shinoda Bolen is skilled at weaving of myth, and science.

Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. is a psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, and author. Bolen has written several books on the archetypal psychology of women and men in the development of spirituality. She is a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, a former clinical professor of psychiatry at Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute, University of California Medical Center and a past board member of the Ms. Foundation for Women, the International Transpersonal Association, and the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco. She is the author of thirteen books in over one hundred foreign editions.
