SUMMARY Goddesses Mysteries of the Feminine Divine

Scholarly classicsWhile Campbell’s work reached wide and deep as he covered the world’s great mythological traditions he never wrote a book on goddesses in world mythology He did however have much to say on the subject Between 1972 and 1986 he gave over twenty lectures and workshops on goddesses exploring the figures functions symbols and themes of the feminine divine following them through their transformations across cultures and epochsIn this provocative volume editor Safron Rossi a goddes. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Joseph Campbell know that he was a renowned mythologist endowed with the ability to make myth accessible and appealing to all It is a true pleasure to read his works and to receive his knowledge of the spiritual principles ingrained in all legendsThis book is a compilation of lectures given by Joseph Campbell on the subject of the feminine divine Campbell traces the evolution of the concept of the Great Goddess from Neolithic Old Europe to the Renaissance I very much enjoyed reading it and I recommend the book to anyone who has an interest in the subject The following uote at the very beginning of the volume touched an inner sensitive cord It is both surprising and amazing to me that he had such deep understanding of our feminine energies Many of the difficulties that women face today follow from the fact that they are moving into a field of action in the world that was formerly reserved for the male and for which there are no female mythological models The woman finds herself conseuently in a competitive relationship with the male and in this may lose the sense of her own nature She is something in her own right and traditionally for some four million years the relationship of that something to the male has been experienced and represented not as directly competitive but as cooperative in the shared ordeal of continuing and supporting life Her biologically assigned role was to give birth to and to rear children The male role was to support and protect Both roles are biologically and psychologically archetypical But what has happened now as a result of the masculine invention of the vacuum cleaner is that women have been relieved in some measure of their traditional bondage to the household They are moving into the field and jungle of individual uest achievement and self realization for which there are no female models Moreover in pursuing their distinct careers they are emerging progressively as differentiated personalities leaving behind the old archetypal accent on the biological role to which however their psyches are still constitutionally bound The grim prayer of Lady Macbeth before her deed unsex me here must be the unspoken deeply felt cry of many a new contender in this masculine jungleThere is no such need however The challenge of the moment and there are many who are meeting it accepting it and responding to it in the way not of men but of women the challenge is to flower as individuals neither as biological archetypes nor as personalities imitative of the male And to repeat there are no models in our mythology for an individual woman s uest Nor is there any model for the male in marriage to an individuated female We are in this thing together and have to work it out together not with passion which is always archetypal but with compassion in patient fostering of each other s growth If only he was still alive I would have loved to read his thoughts on The Hunger Games and Fifty Shades of Gray Alfablot say on the Wild Gypsy Rose (Royals of Cardenas Book 4) subject Between 1972 and 1986 he gave over twenty lectures and workshops on goddesses exploring the figures functions Heads of the Colored People symbols and themes of the feminine divine following them through their transformations across cultures and epochsIn this provocative volume editor Safron Rossi a goddes.
