Overview

Gestalt and Jungian psychologists Jennifer and Roger Woolger have written a fascinating guide to the goddess qualities that live within us all. Learn how to navigate the turning points in your life by understanding which goddess type is coming to the fore. Wonderfully affirming, profound in its implications, THE GODDESS WITHIN helps restore the feminine to its rightful place in the modern consciousness and offers every woman the unique opportunity to learn more about her own power to transform herself.

Two Jungian psychologists discuss the influence the classic Greek goddesses have on a woman's psyche and how women can bring the different goddess energies into harmony for greater strength and new insights into their lives.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The authors, both psychologists, argue that the goddesses of ancient mythology represent eternal feminine qualities that should be recovered and honored. Emphasizing how the goddess archetypes can distort or enhance one's life, they then flesh out these archetypes with examples drawn from literature, film, and clinical practice. Because of tone rather than content, the result is difficult to recommend to libraries. For while the stated purpose is to create greater understanding and empathy for the feminine in our culture, that purpose is undermined by the authors' use of culturally loaded vocabulary. Libraries will serve their readers better by purchasing Jean Shinoda Bolen's Goddesses in Everywoman (Harper, 1984), which covers the same material in a more sympathetic manner.-- Lucy Patrick, Florida State Univ. Lib., Tallahassee
