Ancient Archetypes for Modern Empowerment

"What lies behind us and what lies before us, is of little value beside what lies within us."

Athena Hypathia with scrollsWhether you believe that the gods and goddesses of the ancient world were actually visiting Extraterrestrial World Civilizers, or were merely the creative constructs of our Ancestors’ minds who looked up at the stars and tuned into the existence of Cosmic Archetypes within the Mind of God, these various male and female Archetypes provide a rich source of self-expression, even in a modern world. Today we can even think of them as Ancient Archetypes for Modern Empowerment.

This section of our website is dedicated to taking a look at some of these various Archetypes so that they may act as Heroic Models for us today. While none of them are perfect, they do express valuable lessons, qualities, and aspects of the human condition.

They represent qualities like Love, Truth, Honor, Wisdom, Governance, Heroism, Teaching, the Arts, the Sciences, the importance of Family, Kindness, Peace, and Healing. So the various Archetypes we have chosen to highlight here represent people or gods or Cosmic Archetypes that typified those qualities.

For women all over the world who have been given the very narrow Archetypes of Sinner (Eve and the Apple), Virgin (Mary the Mother), Prostitute (poor maligned Mary Magdalene), or Demoness (the grossly misunderstood Lilith), correction these Archetypal Projections of the Patriarchial culture is critical to our inner psyche.

And examining and embracing the vast array of other Archetypes that once existed in the Ancient World when we had  a more balanced partnership model, can be empowering, fun, and immensely helpful in building a more balanced internal dialogue with ourselves.

We have also included a section with a few additional models of men. These are of equal importance in modeling healthy, wise, kind, loving and life affirming men whose power is able to function not in the role of egoistic dominance and self service, but for the good of the family, the community and the women they love.

We hope you enjoy browsing through this menagerie of Cosmic Archetypes and that you will find aspects of yourself that they can awaken.
