    Salve Ártemis! Mas quem quer que seja - homem ou mulher - que use os mitos para ditar comportamentos estereotipados aos outros, para restringir a realidade em vez de aprofundá-la, ou para forçar outra pessoa a manter-se dentro de determinado espaço, papel ou mito, que não seja natural para ela, procede exatamente ao contrário do pensamento mítico, que convida cada pessoa a reconhecer o mito que emerge mais naturalmente de seu próprio ser e destino

    What a fantastic book. Paris takes the Greek gods and goddesses seriously by exploring their meanings. More importantly, she understands them in our contemporary setting and deals with how we enact these archetypes. For example, we experience Artemis when we strive for purity, when we set aside family or relationships in order to pursue our individual goals -- career, say, or avoiding having children. I found the book illuminating, brilliant, and insightful.

    I appreciated Dr. Paris' presentation of these Goddesses and her overall goal of not necessarily trying to convince anyone of anything, but rather petition for a change of perspective. It's as equally dangerous to have a patriarchal, monotheistic belief as it is a matriarchal, monotheistic belief; I really liked the emphasis that women can be everything and should be everything. Although it was a psychological approach to the subject, I found it quite pleasant to read (not dry) and appreciated t I appreciated Dr. Paris' presentation of these Goddesses and her overall goal of not necessarily trying to convince anyone of anything, but rather petition for a change of perspective.

Although it was a psychological approach to the subject, I found it quite pleasant to read (not dry) and appreciated that she was not scared to share her personal opinions. I particularly found myself surprised and engaged with her stance on Artemis; she is typically worshipped as the Virgin Goddess but I liked that she is also the Goddess of Childbirth, part of the Triple Goddess, and that deep connection to animalism and death that all women have when they are free/empowered to connect with it. It is less about being a Virgin and more about coming back to yourself and having the power/space to be alone and untouched for periods of time - it was wonderfully refreshing to have her presented that way since her "purity" was twisted and then integrated into Christian beliefs, ultimately skewing one aspect of her. There isn't anything jaw-dropping, but still a solid-read that I'd recommend.

    This book is one I've read a few times over the year. If you're interested in Greek Goddess mythology, you'll find it illuminating and well-written.

    This is a thinking person's, non-gender-specific alternative to Jean Shinoda Bolen's Goddesses in Every Woman. This is a thinking person's, non-gender-specific alternative to Jean Shinoda Bolen's Goddesses in Every Woman.

    Top-notch! A source text I use to refresh my sense for archetypal patterns in soul-making.
