Do you remember a time in your life when you were excited to get out of bed every morning... or has it been too long since you’ve felt this way?
Have you ever had a deep drive, a fire lit inside you that made you know that you were on your true path and totally in line with the universe... or do you wonder if it is even possible for you to be that driven at this point in your life?
Sadly, it is common in our culture to feel the latter — like you don’t have drive and purpose, even if you so deeply long for it. But there is a good reason why this is such a widespread problem...
According to Jean Shinoda Bolen, psychiatrist, teacher, and author of the bestselling book, Goddesses in Everywoman, our culture has channeled women into overly narrow boxes and roles, often suppressing their power, vitality and creative expression.
The result for women is a disconnect from one of the greatest sources of happiness and fulfillment — the pure joy of living in your own truth. When you live in your own truth and know who you really are from the inside-out then it is easy to find connection, purpose, and true happiness in this world.
This is why Jean teaches women to take the wheel in their own lives by shedding their inherited, cultural stories and uncovering their own inner truth through their authentic story and the wisdom of seven goddess archetypes: Artemis, Athena, Hestia, Hera, Demeter, Persephone, and Aphrodite.
The seven goddess archetypes are forces that reside within you, each which has its role to play in your life... each with something to teach you that can completely rock your world.
Through Jean’s work, you can learn to align with (and live from) the energy of your natural goddess archetype. When you do this, you have more vitality, passion, authenticity and power. You are in resonance with your soul and you begin to move in flow with the universe towards your highest purpose on this planet.
You also can learn how to recognize the influence of the other six archetypes on your life. These supporting roles in your psyche may be showing up during particular phases or in certain areas of your life to provide wisdom for you on your journey — and you can harvest this wisdom for your personal benefit If you are able to be aware of their influence...
Or you may find that a certain archetype has been forced on you, even though it isn’t the true expression within you. This can have a negative effect on your life, as it did for Jean Shinoda Bolen who always identified with the Artemis, or wild woman, archetype throughout her life, yet the influence of society pushed her to live into the mother archetype (Demeter).
Jean now teaches women how they can recognize and work with their archetypes so they can make conscious choices to be their most authentic, powerful self in their lives and let go of the roles imposed by the rest of the world.
Reclaiming the full expression of your feminine archetypes liberates pent-up creativity, joy and zest for life and allows you to deepen your understanding of how and why you became who you are today... and what you’ll become tomorrow!
The Liberating the Goddesses in You program is the first virtual program in which pioneering Jungian analyst and bestselling author, Jean Shinoda Bolen, guides you on a journey into your psychological and spiritual depths to access the archetypal powers within you.
In this unprecedented virtual training, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the seven primary mythological Greek goddesses at the core of Jean’s bestselling book, but in far more depth. You will come to know first-hand the groundbreaking teachings that have helped more than half a million women to find their inner self and true life’s purpose.
You’ll learn to recognize the deep qualities of each goddess within you — both the positive and negative traits — and how you can use their strengths to point your sail in the direction of your soul’s truest path.
Each goddess embodies unique qualities and personality traits that together comprise the full spectrum of your feminine self. Over-identifying with just one goddess can prevent you from embodying and expressing all the various facets of yourself and living a balanced life. And identifying with the wrong goddesses for you can be equally problematic.
As you explore these goddesses — opening to each at the depths your soul deems right for you — you can better experience the greater forces at play within you. You will start to discover which goddesses you need to embody to truly feel “at home” in your body and life. .. and which goddess energy you must tone down so that you can enjoy a more fulfilling and soul-aligned life.
This 10-part journey is about walking boldly and purposefully into your authentic self, confident that the goddesses within you are guiding you to live a life that is soul-inspired, liberating and radiates your inherent qualities — and greatest gifts — outward to be realized and shared with all.
Along the way, as you get better insight on your psychology, you will also gain insight on psychology of others and this will enhance your relationships with those around you, including romantic partners, family members, coworkers, even those you connect with casually in your everyday life.
Note: This course is valuable to therapists, coaches, parents, and to men to learn about women and the archetypes they are drawn to (or have been hurt by). The emphasis is on individual growth and development, which would make it a course directed to women as the primary audience; however, it is not all about the individual woman either — students will be invited to think about their affinities and tensions with friends, lovers, siblings and mothers, evoked by their goddesses within. Goddess archetypes can provide valuable insights into the clients and patients of psychologists and psychiatrists as well.
When you participate in this groundbreaking virtual program, you’ll learn why some women need monogamy, marriage and children to feel fulfilled, and why other women seek emotional intensity and new experiences through a series of relationships — and where you fall on this spectrum and why it matters...
You’ll understand why one type of woman prioritizes solitude and spirituality, and why another is keenly aware of aesthetic details yet doesn’t notice when the stove is left on.
You’ll solve the mysteries of why you may have an affinity for certain types of partners. Why do some women choose partners who are powerful and successful? Emotional and creative? Bright and boyish? You’ll gain insights into how each goddess is an unseen impetus propelling a woman toward a distinct type of partner.
Like every woman, you were blessed with “goddess-given” gifts to embrace and express as only you can. You were also endowed with “goddess-given” liabilities, which you must identify and transcend if you are to fully step into the shoes of who you are capable of becoming.
Learning how these seven goddesses are stirring within you — which are dominant, which are dormant, which need to be cultivated and which need to be overcome — can help you envision and call up needed strengths and qualities when you need them most.
Each goddess has an extensive mythology, rich in symbolic meaning that can evoke profound self-discoveries and exciting possibilities for your life. Hearing their myths and relating to them provides compelling new ways to see yourself and who you were meant to become.
Fully understanding all the nuances and powers of these seven archetypes could take years of studying, interpreting and integrating mythology and psychology.
But instead of trying to do so in a lonely library of your own creation, what if you could take a 10-module virtual expedition into the heart of these feminine mysteries with an expert teacher who has changed the lives of over half a million women?
Think of Jean Shinoda Bolen as a guide for your soul as you embark on this fascinating journey into mythology, self-awareness and personal transformation.
Jean’s revolutionary findings in her signature book, Goddesses in Everywoman, gave rise to a new psychological perspective of women based on prototypes provided by Greek goddesses who have stayed alive in human imagination for over 3,000 years. The book was so groundbreaking when it was released 34 years ago that it has since been translated into 24 different languages.
With more than three decades of immersion in science, mysticism and activism, Jean is uniquely qualified to show you how to better play the leading role in your own unfolding life journey by blending feminist insights with classical myths and Jungian archetypal psychology.
With clarity and compassion, Jean will explain how these powerful inner archetypes influence your choices and behavior and, consequently, the arc of your life.
Learning which goddess energies are swirling within you and understanding how they influence every aspect of your life can provide the missing pieces of the puzzle that completes your identity.
Ultimately, tapping into the revitalizing power of these seven classic archetypes enables you to activate the greatness within you and become the heroine of your own life story.
In this 10-part transformational journey, Jean will guide you through the fundamental feminine archetypal forces, insights, and patterns that you’ll need to successfully access your natural soul expression and live from a place of wholeness.
pEach module will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices and insights you’ll need to deepen your soul’s journey into these archetypal energies.
The phrase “your one wild and precious life” comes from Mary Oliver’s poem "Summer Day,” and is known by many. The wildness that Oliver refers to is your innate nature — who you were born into the world as and the way of being that is natural to you.
This wild nature is also the stirring of goddess energies within you. This module will help you start to discover your goddess energies within. It will also guide you in discovering the effects the outer world has had on these energies’ ability to be activated as the life-fulfilling juice they can be, including explorations of the influence patriarchy, culture, your upbringing, and the Women’s Movement.
In this module, you’ll:
Archetypes are deep patterns of being and behaving. They act in us and through us whether we know them by name or not. Throughout this course, you will explore seven mythological Greek goddesses: Artemis, Athena, Hestia, Hera, Demeter, Persephone and Aphrodite.
The archetypal energies of one of them may remain dominant within you throughout your life and can be considered your natural or “signature” goddess. You may also experience the stirring of several of the goddesses within you over your lifetime, as the need or desire to shift your inner compass arises during different phases of your life.
In this module you’ll:
You will start with the stories of Artemis. Artemis was the first born of twins; her brother was Apollo, God of the Sun. She was a help to her mother — the only goddess known for this. Her realm was the wilderness, which she roamed with her nymph companions.
Those who embody the Artemis archetype have a sense of equality with men, a sisterhood with women and an affinity with nature. Artemis energy is active in feminists, environmentalists, activists and therapists motivated to help the vulnerable. Artemis also has a spiritual or mystical way of seeing: moonlight vision.
In this module, you’ll learn:
In this module and those that follow, we’ll begin the exciting journey of discovering the characteristics and behaviors of seven mythological Greek goddesses. Through their stories, you’ll begin to recognize which goddess archetypes you are most aligned with, and discover which you may need to draw from or tone down to create greater balance within yourself and your life.
Athena was born out of her father Zeus’ head as a grown woman wearing golden armor. She announced her arrival with a war cry and the earth shook when her feet hit the ground. She became the only Olympian that Zeus trusted with his symbols of power. She is the archetype of the Father’s Daughter, the defender of Patriarchy, and the ally of heroes.
Her realm was the city; Athens bears her name. She was the Patron Goddess of Weavers and an expert strategist on the battlefield. Both require similar skills, seeing the big picture and devising strategies to create the desired outcome. Athena Women thrive in the corporate and political worlds.
In this module, you’ll learn:
Hestia is the third Virgin Goddess and least known of the Greek goddesses. She is notably absent from myths and not represented in statues or paintings. Instead, she was the fire at the center of the round hearth, which can also be represented by the mandala — Jung’s image for the Self. It was her presence that made a house a home and a building a temple. Hestia was a spiritually-felt presence that provided illumination, warmth, and heat to cook food.
A Hestia Woman is detached from the outer world that engages most people. She is not invested in being known, or desired, or ambitious. She creates a center of serenity around her. It suits her to be a homemaker or to follow a calling into a contemplative order of nuns or as a member of an ashram or collective community. The problem for a contemporary Hestia is her invisibility. In an extroverted culture, the roles that suit her are not aptly valued in our culture.
In this module, you’ll learn:
Hera is the first of the three Vulnerable Goddesses: Hera, Demeter and Persephone. These goddesses’ psychology and mythology cannot be separated from the significant others in their lives. Of necessity, they pay more attention to those around them, which diffuses their awareness of themselves.
The goddess Hera was the wife of Zeus, Chief God. Major temples and rituals were dedicated to her. Marriage was sacred to Hera, while her unfaithful husband Zeus was a philanderer, seducer and rapist whose progeny were gods and demigods. Hera became enraged and vindictive toward the women Zeus had been attracted to and took out this rage on them, their children or innocent bystanders.
The archetype of the wife is a powerful force in the psyches of Hera Women. Marriage is the goal, the source of meaning and identification. A married Hera Woman’s life centers around her spouse and a social world of couples. Her happiness and meaning depends upon fidelity and how important she is to her spouse.
In this module, you’ll learn:
Demeter is the goddess of bountiful harvests — Goddess of Grain, the source of basic nourishment in bread and cereals (Ceres is her Roman name). She was portrayed as a beautiful, mature woman with golden hair and dressed in blue. She is the most maternal of the Olympians and best known as the mother of Persephone.
Demeter represents the maternal archetype and its strong instincts. Demeter Women are fulfilled through mothering and/or providing physical, psychological or spiritual nourishment to others.
During this module, Jean will tell the story of Demeter and the abduction of Persephone, interpreting and expanding its meaning and relevance to your modern day life.
In this module, you’ll learn:
Persephone was the nameless maiden and privileged daughter of Zeus and Demeter before her abduction by Hades plunged her into the Underworld. Hermes was sent to bring her back to Demeter, but before she returned to the Upper World, Persephone swallowed pomegranate seeds given to her by Hades. As a result of digesting or metabolizing the Underworld experience, she became Queen of the Underworld and a guide for others. She also would then spend part of the year in the Underworld, emerging each spring.
Persephone starts as the least defined of the goddess archetypes, the one most affected by others’ stronger personalities and most susceptible to becoming a victim, with potential for staying a victim or redeeming her suffering by becoming a guide for others.
In this module, you’ll:
When Aphrodite arrived on Olympus, many of the gods were struck by her beauty and wanted to marry her. Unlike any of the other goddesses, she did the choosing, and chose to marry Hephaestus, the lame God of the Forge. Her myths tell of her many lovers, both gods and mortals, all chosen by her, who became fathers of her children.
Aphrodite’s awesome power was irresistible; she could cause divinities and mortals to fall in love. In myths in which she affects others as in the story of Medea and Jason, or in the real life of women who fall in love with abusive men, her effect can be a curse.
The image and meaning of Aphrodite herself suffered when the ancient divinities of Greece and Rome became superseded by monotheism. This goddess who was once revered became denigrated as the goddess of prostitutes.
However, when Aphrodite is active in women — who can choose to express this aspect of themselves wisely — then love and beauty enhances their relationships. Sensuality and sexuality is hers to feel and express with whom and whenever she likes; yet, only when she has autonomy and culture is not repressed by patriarchy.
In this module, you’ll learn:
Women as well as men can be on a Hero’s Journey when they are heeding the inner call to adventure. Every woman is acted upon by two powerful forces: the goddesses within us, and the expectations of others and culture on us. Within, the archetypes can ally, and they can also create conflict. In our outer lives, those closest to us consciously or unconsciously mold us to fit their needs. Patriarchy rewards, limits, or punishes archetypes.
So, which goddess gets the Golden Apple and who decides ? In life, we are all affected by circumstances beyond our control, yet how we respond to them determines who we are becoming. Through the use of consciousness and choice, you can determine your true path.
In this module, you’ll:
In addition to Jean’s transformative 10-module virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions with leading visionaries and teachers. These bonus sessions complement what you’ll learn in the course and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
Jean’s thwarted efforts to save a magnificent Monterey Pine tree in her yard from those who wanted to have a better view moved her to look at the anatomy and physiology of trees as well as the archetypal and sacred symbols they represent.
In this compelling audio hosted by Justine Willis Toms, Jean makes the connection between the oppression of women and girls and the devastation of forests by man. “If this world was a good place for children and women, it would be a hugely different world,” she says.
She also encourages us to find the cause that has our name on it, a search that can be precipitated by asking the following questions: 1) Does it have personal meaning for me? 2) Is it fun? and, 3) Is it motivated by love? “Sometimes (love) looks like outrage, because what you love is being cut down, or trashed,” she shares. “But the motivation is that you love the principle, or the person, or the animal, or the life, or the planet, or the idea.”
This insightful video examines the nature of wisdom, how it can be both universally recognized yet expressed in different ways by different traditions, and why our survival today as a species and a planet will almost certainly depend on it. Roger Walsh is a professor of psychiatry, philosophy and anthropology and has edited a book on how wisdom can be understood and cultivated.
This is the inspiring call to action to “gather the women and save the world” that was interrupted by applause and got a standing ovation. Jean spoke spontaneously, quietly and yet passionately to women in the audience from all over the world. Listening to this audio feels as if Jean is speaking directly to you as well as addressing a large audience. It is great to listen to and share for information and inspiration, as it is full of seed ideas waiting to be planted.
Dr. Bolen is one of my favorite modern authors... She weaves the stories of 7 goddesses of classical Greece (Athena, Artemis, Hestia, Hera, Demeter, Persephone, and Aphrodite) with observations of emotional and behavioral patterns culled from her years of clinical work. The results are truly compelling portraits — almost every women will find at least one "aha!" of recognition... and all of us can find some kind of "aha!" for the women dear to us in our lives. By casting these behavioral patterns as *goddesses*, Dr. Bolen is ennobling the internal and external struggles of women and underscoring their inherent strength and wisdom...

Discover you’re a Goddess! Jean Shinoda Bolen is remarkable for putting together a set of archetypes for women to study and gain self-comprehension. The use of Greek goddesses — Artemis, Athena, Hestia, Hera, Demeter, Persephone and Aphrodite — helps women readily identify who they naturally are and whom they were conditioned to be. In addition, the archetypes enable women to look into activating whom they would like to be. I too noticed the presence of different goddesses in my life, in particular Artemis, Aphrodite, and Persephone. I was completely taken by these 3 archetypes, and plan to research them further...
– Alex B.
Bolen takes Jungian psychology one step further by positing that there is not just, but many, female archetypes, and that a well-balanced women should incorporate aspects from each into her personality. Bolen uses the Greek goddesses Artemis, Athena, Hestia, Persephone, Demeter, Hera and Aphrodite to illustrate aspects of femininity — including both strengths and weaknesses that come with certain characteristics. In the end, Bolen reminds women that choosing which archetype to draw from in any particular circumstance or learning to develop new aspects is critical. Absolutely fascinating!
– K. B.
...I have had to overcome many myths my family has projected onto me, about myself. Dr. Bolen’s book helped me to pinpoint my underlying picture. I was able to do this because of the information about the other goddess archetypes. I think if you are a woman, and you are beginning a path of healing and recovery of your true self, this book will help you find the goddess who holds you captive (so to speak). I could then search for a way out of my captivity and access the strength available to me through the archetype I identified with. There are strengths and weaknesses to all the goddesses but I saw a common thread that ran through all of my life. I now had a starting point, I could then walk forward.
