$22.95 $21.11

Artemis, woman whole unto her Self. Women untamed and unsubdued, who will not be victims. Activist archetypes explored in ancient Greek Mythology and modern media heroines. Dedicated to women and girls who embody Artemis.

Activism for the Modern Day Artemis

From the author dubbed “an Artemis,” by Gloria Steinem, comes Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman, a book dedicated to women with the courage and passion to change the world.

Myths come to life. Worshiped in Ancient Greece as a protectress of young girls, Artemis was the goddess of hunting, nature, and chastity–the original “wild woman.” In Artemis, Jungian analyst and best-selling author, Jean Shinoda Bolen, revives the goddess Artemis to reclaim the female passion and persistence to survive and succeed.

We are all goddesses. But an indomitable spirit isn’t just reserved for the gods. In her book, Dr. Bolen revives the myth of Atalanta, an archetypal Artemis and mere mortal. To Atalanta, fate was no obstacle. Left to die because she was born a girl, she faces the Calydon Boar and outruns any man attempting to claim her as his wife. In Artemis, women are encouraged to discover their inner heroine–the activist who never gives up, who cannot be subdued.

Artemis today. Face it: women can’t be tamed. Whether women’s rights activists or Princess Merida from Brave, the Artemis personality is embodied in the modern women. Hailed by a modern-day Artemis, Isabel Allende, as a “beautiful, inspiring book,” Artemis is dedicated to all women and girls who discover her unconquerable spirit in themselves or others. Inside find:

  • Examples of Artemis in real-life and popular culture
  • Ancient and modern ways to be your authentic self
  • A source of strength, power, and integrity

If you enjoyed the books Women Who Run with the WolvesWild Mercy, or Goddesses in Everywoman, you’ll love Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman.

Description

artemis by jean shinoda bolen

Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Every Woman by Jean Shinoda Bolen explores the archetype of the activist – ancient and modern – and invites women and girls to discover the tenacity and courage of Artemis, and how it can be tapped to live authentically. Indomitable means untamed, unsubdued. It is the “Woman, Whole Unto Herself” quality in girls and women who will not be victims.

Jean Bolen delves deeply into the myth of Atalanta, the famous hunter and runner in ancient Greek mythology, a mortal woman who is identified with Artemis the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and Moon. Atalanta began life abandoned and left to die because she was born a girl. Artemis exemplifies the indomitable spirit of competent, courageous girls and the women they become. This is grit, the passion and persistence to go the distance, to survive, and to succeed.

Included are many real-life stories as well as mythological and fictional examples of Artemis archetype women, including Princess Merida from the animated film Brave and Katniss from The Hunger Games. Artemis and Atalanta are the means through which readers can navigate their own personal exploration to become their authentic selves. Hardback. ISBN 9781573245913.
