Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD,
is a psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, author, speaker, advocate for a UN 5th World Conference on Women, former clinical professor of psychiatry at UCSF, and former board member of the Ms. Foundation.
The premise of Jean’s Jungian, feminist, and spiritual perspective begins with the certainty that it matters what we do with our “one wild and precious life,” a quote from the poet Mary Oliver. To find and live our personal myth is to be true to who we are. For many who attend, the likelihood is that Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and moon, whose real and metaphoric terrain is the wilderness, is an archetype, inner child, and activist.
