Spotlight: Jean Shinoda Bolen

 

Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. is a psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, and an internationally known author and speaker. She brings emphasis to the question for meaning and the need for a spiritual dimension in life to all aspects of her work, while also taking into account the powerful effects of archetypes within us, and of family and culture upon us. Here we have collected some of the deep dialogues we’ve had with Bolen through the years. They cover such diverse subjects as how serious illness takes you to the “underworld”, how solutions evolve out of grassroots conversations, the mystical quality of trees, how the Artemis archetype inspires us to be a strong voice for what is right and good in these troubled times, and much more. These programs are specially selected from the New Dimensions Archives.
