Barron's, 2001 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 143 pages
Goddess archetypes have existed for thousands of years as sources of feminine power. Awakening Your Goddess helps today's women draw inspiration from many cultures as a means to self-fulfillment. The author points out how every woman's life is influenced by goddess archetypes, then advises on how to create a balance among them to achieve personal wholeness. The archetypes are: The Maiden, as embodied in such goddesses as Artemis, Persephone, and Athena. Maiden behavior patterns appear in mother-daughter, father-daughter, and sister-sister relationships. The Mother, with examples including Isis, and Hera. Mother behavior patterns include the drive to bear children and to become a home-maker and a significant other. The Wise Woman, personified by Kali, Cailleach, Hecate, and others. The goddess as achiever inspires the independent woman who does not have to submerge her own personality in favor of others. Each chapter contains meditation exercises and self-help questions to help each reader empower her own being. Full-color illustrations throughout.
