“It is time to ‘gather the women’ – for only when women are strong together can women be fiercely protective of what we love.”  Jungian therapist and author, Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. heard this call and was moved to write Urgent Message From Mother: Gather the Women, Save the World, exploring the untapped power of women coming together to change our world. Her work has drawn from the Sacred Feminine, which both women and men embody into consciousness and culture.  Bolen wants every child in the world to be wanted, to be fed, to be safe, and to have healthcare and be able to grow; and women, she believes, are the ones to bring it about.  “I’m not speaking of the need for women to run the world; I’m saying that women need to speak up, speak the truth, in order to bring balance into the world.”  She speaks about the differences between objectivity and the ability to strategize using the feminine realm of empathy, connectedness, and nurturing, and how, at this time, our world needs the combined qualities of each of these.  (hosted by Bec Kageyama)
