2.Facing the Unknown Wilderness of Great Change with Jean Shinoda Bolen

Jean Shinoda Bolen M.D.
Transformed podcast

In this podcast, I sat down with Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD (psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, speaker, activist and author of 13 books including Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman) to discuss freedom of choice, breaking through society’s expectations, and the unique journey of discovering your wants and desires. Paving your own road is not a simple task. Defining your own happiness requires leaving some things that are familiar to you, behind.

“You are in the wilderness when you have left who you were and there is no turning back.”– Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D
