The truth is we have a little bit of every goddess within us! Each female archetype represents powerful cultural stereotypes and unconscious forces that can influence our lives.
The goddess archetypes can offer insights into what is motivating us
They help us to look deeper into how our life choices are affected by our culture
It explores our relationship with sexuality
without blame or judgement
Looking at roles, motivational forces, and modes of consciousness
The archetype theory comes from Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen who is a very passionate female activist, author and psychiatrist.
I think that it is absolutely fascinating how much cultural norms can affect our life, goals, and choices. It is so important to take a step back and really look at what motivates you. Is it because everyone around you is doing it? Is it because you are a certain age? Is it because of how you look?
The book called 'The Goddess In Every Woman' teaches us to be more in tune with our bodies, our beliefs, and our motivations. It's a must read in my book!
