“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.”
By examining goddess myths, folklore, and archetypes, Mildon seeks to encourage her readers to look within themselves to find their own inner goddess. For someone who wants a light-hearted book with colloquial prose to help them explore their femininity, this one is it.
This emotionally engaging read speaks to a wide spectrum of women’s experiences through narrative poems and layered photography. It is vulnerable and yet strong at the same time.
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. WomanCode came into my life at a time when I was suffering from hormonal imbalance, loss of menstruation and low libido. This book offered the comfort of knowing I wasn’t the only one while also teaching me so much about menstruation (and it’s beauty!). I feel this book empowers women to reclaim their femininity and find peace with their monthly flow – with the hope at ending the cycle of painful periods, hormonal imbalances and disconnection with our natural flow.
