In 1989 Gestalt and Jungian psychologists Jennifer Barker Woolger and Roger J Woolger published a seminal book, based on their work with workshops on goddess psychology, “The Goddess Within”. It explored the archetypes of six Greek Goddesses in the lives of modern women. These archetypes validate the feminine as it truly presents itself from your soul, reflected by behaviour patterns, not as today’s society dictates that women should be. The goddess archetypes validate women to be as they were meant to be, providing a source of freedom and understanding that you can tap into, regardless of what life path you have chosen to take. This will remove unfair expectations that your upbringing has placed on you and help you navigate the turning points in your life, by understanding which goddess type is operating most strongly at the time. This approach encourages you to bring more harmony between the various goddess qualities, as having one goddess dominate the personality denies the richness that can come from having them all in balance.
