Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman
Artemis the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and Moon, twin sister of Apollo is the archetype of the activist—for women, social justice, animals, and environment. Her symbols are the bow and arrow, the crescent moon, and mother bear; her realm is the wilderness. In this talk, Jean Shinoda Bolen brings Artemis to life through storytelling, amplified by examples from life and analysis which are likely to resonate in listeners who will recognize Artemis in themselves as archetype or anima.

A Path with A Heart: A Path with a Soul: the Inner Compass
People have an innate sense that there is a purpose to life, related to the idea that life is a soul journey. Jung’s individuation, Campbell’s finding your personal myth, the hero’s journey, Persephone’s abduction into the underworld are variations of the message. We suffer life-threatening illnesses, heart-breaking losses, betrayed expectations. They take us into unfamiliar terrain. We find ourselves at a crossroad. Which path to take? What is an inner compass: what can we know in our bones?

Artemis, Women’s Circles and Sacred Feminine: A Women’s Retreat
Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and the moon, is the archetype of the sister, feminist, environmentalist; the Girl Scout, and child who turned to Mother Nature and animals for strength and solace. The ability to aim for a target and hit it is a gift of focus that leads to achieving goals. Moonlight vision sees the oneness of everything in the universe, leading to mystical spirituality and spiritually-motivated activism. In this retreat, expect stories of goddesses, stories from participants, guided meditation, inner reflection, and participation in circles with a sacred center.
