Item description for Ancient Symbols Live in Today's Women - Images of the Dark Goddess in Psychology by Karen Hansen...
The archeologist Maria Gimbutas left us the gift of symbols and images she found in ancient burial sites of the goddess. From a Jungian perspective this symbolism is related to archetypes which are built into the design of every human being. Feminist theory shows the need for new models solely related women's experience. This book is a guided tour of young women's responses to ancient symbols as seen in archetypal images of six dark goddesses. The work unveils their longing for a set of myths, icons and symbols that are particularly female and empowering. Along that way hidden fears and pains can be revealed and the power they hold can be released. This book introduces a new vision of the archetypal feminine seen through the eyes of young women. Psychologists, sociologists, archeologists and theologians as well as anyone who has struggled with love and loss will benefit from this work.
