83. Awakening Aphrodite, Archetypes and Activism With Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen, Author Of Goddesses In Everywoman and The Millionth Circle Awakening Aphrodite

    • Health & Fitness

Greetings and welcome back to Awakening Aphrodite! I am beyond excited to share this week’s guest with you and our powerful discussion on goddess archetypes, self-knowledge, mythology’s relevance in the modern world and so much more. My amazing guest, Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen, is a Jungian analyst, an M.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry, an activist, a diplomat of the American Board of Psychology and Neurology, an NGO permanent representative to the United Nations’ Commission on the status of women, and, among other wonderful things, a prolific author. You may recognize her for her most famous book, Goddesses In Everywoman, a world-famous classic on women’s psychology that uses seven goddess archetypes as a way of describing personalities, behaviors and the true self. I have all of her books and I am just so thrilled to have this wise and accomplished being on my show.

You can look forward to a wide range of topics in this special episode! Our conversation begins with the recent Chinese New Year of the Water Tiger and the optimism it symbolizes as we simultaneously transition from the patriarchal Piscean Age into the egalitarian Age of Aquarius. We dive into the history of humanity and the origin of the goddess and Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen illuminates the unique artistic aspects of human societies and civilizations.

Together, we debunk myths about mythology and relate ancient Greek tales of gods and goddesses to the psyches of people like you and I in the modern day. In honor of the Aphrodite archetype in me (and for the title of my show!) I ask Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen some deeper questions about the this alchemical goddess of love and how we can invite more Aphrodite energy into our lives. She illuminates the truth that the sacred feminine archetype is in all things: from the awe humanity experienced upon seeing the Earth from outer space for the first time to the liminal gray areas we each must navigate when making a major life decision or transition in life. We conclude with tips on balancing masculine and feminine energies to live our purpose in harmony. Enjoy!
