An Invitation to a Lecture Series
You are invited to attend a four-part series of my lectures “Awakening the Goddesses Within” sponsored by The Northland Public Library, North Hills, PA. The lectures will be held on Thursday evenings (3, 10, 17 & 24 April) from 7:00-9:00. The lectures are free. For registration call (412) 366-8100.
We will discuss how major Hindu goddesses are outer reflections of the dormant powers within women, the powers Carl Jung called "archetypes." The knowledge of the behavior patterns and personality traits of these female divinities provide women tools to understand themselves and their relationship with other men and women. We will argue if women have such powerful inner forces why do they continue to follow stereotypes. We will attempt to take the goddesses out of their patriarchal framework and discuss how these archetypal forces are not just for Hindu but for all women. Hindu goddesses are exemplars capable of inspiring all women irrespective of their religious affiliations.
Self-knowledge leads to self-awareness and self-awareness to a better life.
Don’t miss this lecture series! See you on April 3.
