    schema:description "While on her pilgrimage, Bolen reflects on the mystical experience that brought her into medicine, her awakening to the archetypal feminine through the experience of childbirth, the personal transformations that occurred after her divorce, the sources and significance of midlife depression, and the importance of female friendship. This multilayered account journeys through and beyond the personal to reflect the mythological significance of the midlife search for meaning and renewal."@en ;
    schema:description "Bolen's pursuit takes her on an incredible journey to Europe that leads her to discover the importance of her own history, the changes and challenges at midlife, and the meaning of the goddess in the lives of women."@en ;
    schema:description "The synchronicity of the invitation was astonishing to Bolen, and she knew instinctively that she had been invited to embark on a quest that would change her life."@en ;

For Bolen, the Grail represents the elusive object of a lifelong search for what is missing from our lives as well as from our culture."@en ;
    schema:description "During a particularly difficult time in her life, Jean Bolen quite unexpectedly received a package in the mail from England. Inside was a beautiful gold pendant in the shape of an ancient archetypal image along with an invitation to make a pilgrimage to Chartres, Glastonbury, Iona, and other sacred sites in Europe. It was sent by a total stranger, a woman who had come across one of the first copies of Goddesses in Everywoman, Bolen's groundbreaking work on women and archetypal myth."@en ;
    schema:description "So began the extraordinary pilgrimage that heralded Bolen's midlife passage. Inspired by The Mists of Avalon, this tale of her European adventure is interwoven with penetrating psychological and spiritual insights as well as lore from Europe's sacred sites."@en ;
