Jean Shinoda Bolen is interviewed by Helen Marlo regarding her latest book, Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman (2014). Dr. Bolen discusses Atalanta as a counterpart to the Psyche myth and expands on the archetype of Artemis with activism and feminism. She shares her reflections on the practice of analysis and draws parallels between analysis and activism. With candor and feeling, Dr. Bolen shares about profound and meaningful personal and professional experiences, including birth, her son’s death, motherhood, patriarchy, analytic training, boundary violations, activism, the United Nations World Conference on Women (5WCW), and the importance of love, hope, optimism, and perseverance for analysis and activism.
