Discover how to make the “third act” of life your most authentic, meaningful and joyous by liberating the new Goddess archetypes stirring within you.

Are you ready to tap into and honor the delicious wisdom that comes with maturing?

Would you like to discover how to transform resentment, anger and old wounds into powerful energy for pursuing a new life purpose?

Would you like to laugh more — at life and yourself — to allow the healing power of humor to lighten your heart and soul?

Then you’re in the right place!

The other side of fifty is your time to claim your full power (all that you are) and allow your truest self to emerge — to FINALLY rejoice in who you’ve always wanted to be.

It’s the time to embrace the authenticity, power and freedom available to the mature woman, to fully blossom as you discover and embrace new energies.

This free, hour-long virtual event with feminine psychology pioneer Jean Shinoda Bolen is an invitation to discover the powerful invisible Goddess archetypes within that can help you let go of limitations, embrace new ways of being and cross the threshold to the other side of fifty liberated... AND simmering with new possibilities for your life.

Instead of mourning the loss of your youth (a circumstance popular culture tends to encourage), you can learn to embrace this era of your life by recognizing and activating the empowering Goddess energies that dwell within you, including:

Each archetype holds the key to unique behaviors and personality traits, which may need to surface so you can evolve, or which may need to be tempered or redirected – – such as the transformation of the Goddess Kali’s rage from futile anger into potent energy for supporting a cause for which you’re passionate.

By recognizing your innate feminine archetypes at this time in your life, you help them awaken within so they can help you to use their particular powers, which can free you to honor soul desires that have been stirring since you came into this world.

Discovering these Goddess energies within provides you with the opportunity to embrace your later years, and – as Jean likes to say – “ to become a juicy crone.”

This is a wise woman who has not only developed the discernment and compassion to make smart choices, but who feels deliciously comfortable in her own skin, powerful in her purpose (be it advocating for women’s rights or lovingly caring for her grandchildren), as well as happy, playful and creative in her everyday life.

Failing to identify and honor the Goddesses rousing within you can limit your growth and prevent you from developing and expressing what lies in your depths.

Wholeness requires you to examine and embrace every aspect of yourself, and honoring your archetypal stirrings and desires helps ground and balance you — and gives rise to greater wisdom as well as the vitality and clear sense of purpose that can be yours at this stage of life.

Knowledge of the Goddesses in women over fifty and how they may be functioning within you provides important insights into your own psychology as well as that of others and, in turn, enables you to bring more clarity, compassion and wisdom into your relationships.

Jean’s groundbreaking bestselling book, Goddesses in Everywoman, and its later companion publication, Goddesses in Older Women, provide deep and valuable explorations into the feminine psyche — the original an instant classic when published 30 years ago and still a foundational work for feminist psychology.

With more than three decades of immersion in psychology, mysticism and activism, Jean is uniquely qualified to show you how to free your authentic self from the recesses of your soul and make your wisdom years also your most invigorating, meaningful and savored.

During this fascinating free hour, you’ll discover how to:

  • Open to the intuitive and psychic wisdom of the Greek Goddess Hecate to trust your inner wisdom as the source that can hold your life in balance
  • Connect with the healing humor indicative in the Greek Goddess Bawdy Baubo and Japanese Goddess of Mirth and Dance, Uzume, to help you keep your heart and soul intact when facing major limitations and losses
  • Transform anger into an energy and expression that can best serve yourself and others by opening to the energies of the ancient Egyptian Lion-headed Goddess Sekhmet and Hindu Goddess Kali
  • Arouse the Goddesses of Compassion, Kuan Yin, the Virgin Mary and Lady Liberty, to help you tap into the heartfelt compassion of the feminine and use compassionate action in your life — from the way you negotiate finances with your partner to how you interact out in the world
  • Find support for your tears and laughter by forming a women’s circle where you can feel the sacredness of the world and your connection to it in a deeper and more empowered way

You’ll also thoroughly enjoy Jean’s artful blending of feminist insights with classical myths and Jungian archetypal psychology.

There has perhaps not been a more important time in recent history for women in their wisdom years to awaken their full potential by embracing and embodying the true Self. Tapping into your full potency is empowering and invigorating — and the best gift you can give yourself, your family, your community and the world.

It’s also the kind of power so desperately needed to recover the strides made by women over the past century and to help make the changes that will best serve humanity, the Earth and all of life.

What People Are Saying About Jean Shinoda Bolen...

Dr. Bolen... weaves the stories of 7 goddesses of classical Greece with observations of emotional and behavioral patterns culled from her years of clinical work. The results are truly compelling portraits — almost every women will find at least one "aha!" of recognition... and all of us can find some kind of "aha!" for the women dear to us in our lives.

Discover You’re a Goddess! Jean Shinoda Bolen is remarkable for putting together a set of archetypes for women to study and gain self-comprehension... and helps women readily identify who they naturally are and whom they were conditioned to be. In addition, the archetypes enable women to look into activating whom they would like to be. I was completely taken by these 3 archetypes, and plan to research them further...
— Alex B.

Bolen takes Jungian psychology one step further by positing that there [are] many female archetypes, and that a well-balanced woman should incorporate aspects from each into her personality... Bolen reminds women that choosing which archetype to draw from in any particular circumstance or learning to develop new aspects is critical. Absolutely fascinating!
— K. B.

...I have had to overcome many myths my family has projected onto me, about myself. Dr. Bolen’s book helped me to pinpoint my underlying picture. I was able to do this because of the information about the other goddess archetypes... I could then search for a way out of my captivity and access the strength available to me through the archetype I identified with. There are strengths and weaknesses to all the goddesses but I saw a common thread that ran through all of my life. I now had a starting point, I could then walk forward.
— Cathy A.

Jean Shinoda Bolen continually brings a tour de force for championing the spirit of the female warrior in all. So when I had to download her CD and transfer it to mp3 into several CD discs to listen to while driving I was ok with that. Thanks Bolen for your sharing!
