In this episode, I talk to Jungian analyst, psychiatrist, author and speaker Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen. She shares stories about her involvement in the women’s movement of the 1970’s including how Gloria Steinem helped her to advocate for women’s equality in the world of psychiatry. We explore what archetypal psychology is and how we can start to understand ourselves more deeply through the exploration of female archetypes. We discuss the current state of the world and the opportunities that are available right now for the human species to evolve and why it is so critical that women get clear about what matters to them. Jean shares wisdom about the importance of gathering in circles, having supportive women in our lives and the new world that is possible if we each find our voices and speak up for the values that we hold most dear.
