9780060972806: Gods in Everyman - A New Psychology of Men's Lives & Loves

The companion volume to Goddesses in Everywoman reveals the powerful inner patterns, or archetypes, that shape men’s personalities, careers, and personal relationships—offering a insights into Greek mythology, Jungian archetypal psychology, and into themselves and the people in their lives.

A Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen introduces our inner patterns in the guise of eight archetypal gods. From the authoritarian, power-seeking gods (Zeus, Poseidon) to the gods of creativity (Apollo, Hephaestus) to the sensual Dionysis, Dr. Bolen shows men how to identify their ruling gods, how to decide which to cultivate and which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes in order to enrich and strengthen their lives. She stresses the importance of understanding which gods you are attracted to and which are incompatible with your expectations, uncovers the origins of the often-difficult father-son relationship, and explores society’s deep conflict between nurturing behavior and the need to foster masculinity.

In Gods in Everyman, Dr. Bolen presents us with a compassionate and lucid male psychology that will help all men and women to better understand themselves and their relationships with their fathers, their sons, their brothers and their lovers.

From the Author:

The "Why" of Archetypes
Gods in Everyman is a companion volume to Goddesses in Everywoman. Both are the archetypes in us, based on the gods and goddesses in Greek mythology. People are complex, there is a pantheon of these archetypes in each of us. They act from within us, and the more we know of them, and the more conscious we can be about ourselves, the better. Every archetype is a predisposition each contributes to our personality, helping define our strengths, difficulties, and meaning. Families and cultures favor some archetypes over others, which affects success and self-esteem. On a personal level, individuals who find themselves repeatedly attracted to certain types need to know "who" it is in them and in the other person. I hope that people who read both books, will come away with a respectable knowledge of Greek mythology, a working understanding of Jungian archetypal psychology, and on a personal level, with insights into themselves and the significant people in their lives.
