Goddesses in everywoman : a new psychology of women by Jean Shinoda Bolen( Book )
30 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,981 libraries worldwide
Just as women used to be unconscious of the powerful effects that cultural stereotypes had on them, they may also be unconscious of powerful forces within them that influence what they do and how they feel, and which account for major differences among women. Jungian psychoanalyst Jean Bolen believes that an understanding of these inner patterns and their interrelationships offers reassuring, true-to-life alternatives that take women far beyond such restrictive dichotomies as masculine/feminine, mother/lover, careerist/housewife. And she demonstrates how understanding them can provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness. Dr. Bolen introduces these patterns in the guise of seven archetypal goddesses, or personality types, then shows readers how to identify their ruling goddesses, how to decide which to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes to become better "heroines" in their own life stories.--From publisher description

Ring of power : the abandoned child, the authoritarian father, and the disempowered feminine : a Jungian understanding of Wagner's Ring cycle by Jean Shinoda Bolen( Book )
5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 552 libraries worldwide
"Jean Shinoda Bolen blended psychology and mythology to explore the lives of modern women and men in her acclaimed Goddesses in Everywoman and Gods in Everyman. Now she looks to the richly mythic, multigenerational family drama of the Ring Cycle operas for archetypal truths and liberating insights." "Bolen shows how Wagner's ever-popular Ring Cycle articulates universal experiences and deep-seated longings by offering a mythology of the dysfunctional family and the patriarchal society in which the quest for power distorts personalities and relationships. We respond to the Ring because we recognize ourselves and our relationships in the Cycle's stern father, disempowered mother, abandoned children, and brave truth-tellers." "Bolen vividly relates the events of the four operas and spotlights characters in ways that evoke the reader's identifications, memories, and healing emotions. Following the story, she offers psychological interpretations which amplify the Ring of the Nibelung as though it were a complex dream. When an interpretation rings true for us we learn something about ourselves. Exploring the transformational power of the truth, Bolen shows us how recognizing our patterns and understanding their effects frees us from our personal and global "Ring Cycle" of destruction and dysfunction."--Jacket
