Goddesses in everywoman : a new psychology of women by Jean Shinoda Bolen( Book )
112 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in 14 languages and held by 2,191 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

The Tao of psychology : synchronicity and the self by Jean Shinoda Bolen( Book )
36 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 702 libraries worldwide
The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of this classic explores the inter-relationship between these meaningful coincidences and our intuitive sense that we are part of some deep oneness with the universe -- a oneness called Tao in Eastern philosophy and synchronicity in Jungian psychology. By relating the concepts of Tao and synchronicity, Dr. Bolen reveals important links between psychology and mysticism, right brain and left, the individual and the external world. The Tao of Psychology provides the key for each individual to interpret the synchronistic events in his or her life and gives fresh insight into the relationships, dreams, and flashes of perception that transform our existence

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 )
8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 533 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

In this challenging and enlightening companion volume to the bestselling <Goddesses in Everywoman, </Jean Shinoda Bolen turns her attention to the powerful inner patterns--or archetypes--that shape men's personalities, careers, and personal relationships. Viewing these archtypes as the inner counterparts of the outer world of cultural stereotypes, she demonstrates how men an women can gain an nvaluable sense of wholeness and integration when what they do is consistent with who they are.

Close to the bone : life-threatening illness as a soul journey by Jean Shinoda Bolen( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 124 libraries worldwide
Close to the Bone is a wise companion and guide for people whose lives are changed by a life-threatening illness. When you or a loved one are facing such a situation, sharing this book helps deepen and connect people to what they know "in their bones." A serious illness is a crisis for the body and the soul. The first scary symptom, ominous scan, or abnormal blood test begins a descent into the metaphoric underworld. Powerful ancient myths such as the Abduction of Persephone, the Descent of Inanna, and the last task of Psyche provide us with insights into illness as a soul journey. Jean Shinoda Bolen's telling of these powerful myths, helps us respond to the stories as metaphors for our experience and for the potential psychological and spiritual growth that a brush with death or onset of disability can bring. Sometimes the soul is healed and the body does not recover. Sometimes the possibility of death followed by the return of health serves as a wake-up call and turning point. Life for everyone is a terminal condition, after all. How we respond to unchosen circumstances shapes who we are and provides intimations about the meaning of our particular life. -- Provided by publisher
Artemis : the indomitable spirit in everywoman by Jean Shinoda Bolen( Book )
8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 108 libraries worldwide
To bring the Artemis archetype to life, Bolen delves 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. 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 readers can navigate their own personal exploration to become their authentic selves
