Urgent Message from Mother

Gather the Women, Save the World (Eco Feminism, Mother Earth, for Readers of Goddesses in Everywoman)

By Jean Shinoda Bolen

Women May Be Our Last Hope to Save the Planet

Wake up! Arise! Earth is our home. Listen to your mother, she is calling. Urgent Message from Mother is a call to action for all the women of the world. Do not ask for permission to gather the women. What cannot be done by men, or by individual women, can be done by women together.

Women coming together can produce the tipping point. "Mother" is Mother Earth, mother instinct, mother archetype, mother goddess, Earth Mother ─ the sacred feminine, the Goddess, Gaia. Women as a gender have qualities and priorities that the world needs to reverse man’s destruction of our planet, the violence that traumatizes children, and cycles of conflict and fratricidal wars. "When women are strong together, women can be fiercely protective of what we love." Bolen explains that societies and even species, when they reach a tipping point, can undergo rapid evolution. "We've learned that women gathering together in groups and telling the truth of their lives can actually change the world."

Now is the time for women to lead. Jean Shinoda Bolen’s unique combination of visionary thinking and practical how-to seeks to galvanize the power of women acting together in order to save our world. Bolen outlines the lessons we can learn from the women's movement, draws on Jungian psychology and the sacred feminine, and gives powerful examples of women coming together all over the globe to make a significant impact. Jean Shinoda Bolen's life's work, which includes her Jungian-inspired insights in The Tao of Psychology, her best-seller Goddesses in Every WomanCrones Don't Whine, and The Millionth Circle, culminate in this timely book, Urgent Message from Mother.

Face Life Threatening Situations and Find Hope

“This book can be a companion to anyone in physical or mental pain and crisis.” —Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life

When confronted with a life threatening condition, most people think that doctors have the final word. But, Jean Shinoda Bolen reminds us that the mind has a powerful effect on a prognosis and the process of healing.

Everyone faces illness. Whether it’s a personal health crisis or sickness a loved one is experiencing, none of us escape this life without encountering some form of illness or death. While we can try to ignore the reality, internationally known author and speaker Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen suggests we do the exact opposite: face it. By encountering the frightening world of serious illness and death, we can better uncover how it gives purpose to the journey of souls.

Trust what you know in your bones. Dr. Bolen shares how what we learn often connects to what we know to be true. As a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen has an acute understanding of what shapes a person, particularly as it relates to one’s sense of balance and wholeness. Based on her knowledge and experience, she guides us to find the truth buried in our own bones.

A tool for help and healing. While encountering sickness is inevitable, healing often seems harder to come by. We are left broken open when life threatening illness hits. While there is no single key to recovery, it is rare to find healing without first addressing the pain. This book serves as a guide to finding purpose in the pain.

Read Close to the Bone and find:

  • An insightful book for anyone living with a life-threatening illness
  • Encouragement for facing illness by relying on the wisdom we all have within
  • A supplemental guide for those who want to form support circles

If books such as Invisible Acts of PowerWhen Things Fall Apart; or No Mud, No Lotus have helped you; then Close to the Bone is the next book you need to read.

A Powerful and Poetic Call to Ecofeminism & Environmental Activism

“In this book Jean Bolen expresses the essence of our deep connection to and inseparability from trees.” —Alice Walker

This masterful work by internationally known author and speaker Jean Shinoda Bolen provides an insightful look into the fusion of ecological issues and global gender politics.

Of trees and women. This book on the importance of trees grew out of Bolen’s experience mourning the loss of a Monterey pine that was cut down in her neighborhood. That, combined with her practice of walking among tall trees, led to her deep connection with trees and an understanding of their many complexities. From their anatomy and physiology, to trees as archetypal and sacred symbols, Bolen expertly explores the dynamics of ecological activism spiritual activism and sacred feminism. And, she invites us to join the movement to save trees.

Stories of those making a difference. While there is still much work to be done to address environmental problems, there are many stories of individuals and organizations rising up to make a change and help save our planet. The words and stories that Bolen weaves throughout this book are both inspirational and down-to-earth, calling us to realize what is happening to not only our trees, but our people. By writing about both the work of organizations like Greenpeace and the UN Commission on the Status of Women, Bolen highlights her passions and shares her unique vision for the world.

In Like a Tree learn more about:

  • The dynamic nature of trees―from their anatomy to their role as an archetypal symbol
  • Pressing social issues such as deforestation, global warming, and overpopulation

Artemis

By

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
