Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to further explore the research conducted by UCLA archaeologist, Marija Gimbutas. Its main focus was to develop a deeper understanding of her magnum opus about the Neolithic sites which she named, Old Europe (Gimbutas, 1989). The method of inquiry was a theoretical hermeneutic one, supplemented by an alchemical hermeneutic method. A close reading of Gimbutas's famous 1989 text, Language of the Goddess , applied a depth psychological lens to the images depicted in the sculptures and drawings found at those prehistoric sites. The purpose of this close reading of her text was to address the issue of women's physical and emotional health in the context of today's current social and cultural mores. Three themes emerged in relation to the purpose of this study. One theme concerns the relation between the cycles of a woman's body and the seasons of nature. A second theme focuses on the cultural and historical images of women's bodies. The third theme describes patterns of emergence. These emerging patterns were shown in the transformation from Paleolithic to Neolithic cultures, in the transition from prenatal fetus to newborn infant, and in consciousness emerging out of the collective unconscious. Three specific applications of this study arose. One is the creation of a psycho-educational tool, the Embracelet, designed to inform menarche by counting the 28-day lunar cycle. A second application is the clinical assessment form, the Social Stressor Scale for Girls, developed to identify those girls who are more at-risk for earlier menarche and psychological suffering. A third application is the Matrilineal History Intake Form, designed to unearth trans-generational trauma in mother's cellular past. Two theoretical contributions also arose. One is a description and elaboration of Jung's individuation process in terms of a sequencing of seven primordial symbols. The second theoretical elaboration is the theory of Oogonium, or epigenetic inheritance of psyche. This theory proposes that maternal cellular offspring share all of a mother's past psychological history as well as her emotional biochemistry.
