#2 Goddesses in everyday women by Jean Shinoda Bolen

“This book is an “oldie” of sorts and has already served both babyboomers’ and Gen X’ ladies well by expanding their view on what becoming their authentic selves could really mean.

What Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. must be credited for, really, is having taught generations of women how stereotypical views of the feminine keep us locked in place, rather than have us expand and grow into our true potential.

In her book, Bolen introduces seven classical Greek goddess archetypes, from Hera, the godmother, to Hestia, the goddess of the hearth- then relates them to areas where women typically excel or fail, such as being dominant and strong (positive side of Hera), or over caring for the partner and children (with a depression to follow suit once the fledglings have left home- negative side of Hestia).

This way, she helps her female readers figure out which emotional patterns they have been taught to identify with the most in their individual biography and surroundings, and how this choice (might) inhibit their mental and spiritual growth in the present.

Further on through the reading process, Bolen then illustrates how to break those negative (or potentially negative) patterns up to finally thrive and expand our consciousness. The genius move in this book is how the author takes a powerful image from ancient Greek lore for the reader to empathize and identify with, and then relates it back to the individual woman in a very involving, practical way.

Goddesses in everyday women (and its sequel and counterpart, Gods in everyday men, by the same author) really is a standard work for personal self-development and a self-help manual of the extraordinary kind. Buy them both, and gift one to your hubby- miracles might occur.”

This book is life-changing for any modern woman looking to connect with her femininity, heal underlying hormonal issues and ultimately reunite with the power of her menstrual cycle.
