"I believe that the thought that women together can change the world is emerging into the minds and hearts of many of us, and that the vessel for personal and planetary evolution is the circle with a spiritual center."
Jean Shinoda Bolen

Lecture Description: 

In Jean Shinoda Bolen’s bestselling, game-changing Goddesses in Everywoman, myths came to life in a whole new way that resonated with our own lives. Even fictional character Bridget Jones was reading that book.

Now comes Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman, a groundbreaking new audiobook that explores the archetype of the activist. Indomitable means untamed, unsubdued. It is the one-in-herself quality in girls and women who will not be victims, no matter what. To bring the Artemis archetype to life, Dr. Bolen delves deeply into the myth of Atalanta, the famous hunter and runner in ancient Greek mythology, a mortal woman who is identified with Artemis the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and Moon. Atalanta began life abandoned and left to die because she was born a girl. She faced the Calydon Boar and drew first blood; she was the runner who would demand to be beaten in a footrace by the man who could claim her as his bride. Atalanta exemplifies the indomitable spirit in competent, courageous girls and in the women they become. This is grit, the passion and persistence to go the distance, to survive, and to succeed.

Dr. Bolen paints a vivid picture of Artemis women in current media, including Princess Merida from the animated film Brave and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. In all these examples and those of real-life women who grow into their Artemis spirit, she provides the means through which listeners can navigate their own personal exploration to become their authentic selves. Bolen dedicates this audiobook to women and girls who embody the archetype of Artemis, who discover her uncrushable spirit in themselves or others.

 

Workshop Saturday April 22, 2017

      10 am to 4 pm

Workshop:  "A Path with a Heart, A Path with a Soul: the Inner Compass"

"To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling. Logic can tell you superficially where a path might lead to, but it cannot judge whether your heart will be in it."

Jean Shinoda Bolen

Workshop Description:

Dr. Shinoda Bolen brings the search for meaning and the need for a spiritual dimension in life to all aspects of her work, including the effects of historical archetypes within us, humanity’s collective consciousness, the power of working in circles, the awareness of synchronicity, and the connections and effects of family and culture upon individuals and tribes.

Jean Bolen invites us to remember and connect with our inner compass. The awakening of conscious awareness allows us to trust in knowledge coming to us in the midst of a potentially terminal illness. It may be heart chakra information: what our heart knows is true for us. The most difficult experiences may be opportunities to align with soul – opportunities to recognize the divine spark in others and ourselves.

"I think that whenever soul is present,

it's because what you're doing,

whom you're with,

where you are,

evokes love without your thinking about it.

You are totally absorbed in the place of person or event,

without ego and without judgment."
Jean Shinoda Bolen
