Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman
In Greek mythology, Artemis was the goddess of the hunt and of the moon whose realm was the wilderness, the twin of Apollo. She is the archetype in women who are activists, feminists, environmentalists, social justice advocates, animal and forest protectors, those who have a sense of sisterhood with women and equality with men. A capacity for inner reflection, a sense of oneness in nature, mystical bonds are qualities. In this storytelling book, many real life examples and myths provide a depth psychology view, including related archetypes that often develop in the second half and last third of life. Artemis is also an inner image of the feminine or anima in a man’s psyche.
