Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. is a psychiatrist and author. Bolen has written several books on the archetypal psychology of women and men in the development of spirituality, and is one of the women featured in the 1986 film Women - for America, for the World and 1989 National Film Board of Canada documentary, Goddess Remembered. Bolen also co-founded Psychic magazine in 1969 covering parapsychology and mind-body-spiritual subjects.
Ken Wilbur, in his book Sex, Ecology, and Spirituality expresses his appreciation for Bolen's two books Goddesses in Everywoman, and Gods in Everyman for its "wonderful presentation of all the 'archetypal' gods and goddesses that are collectively inherited by men and women..."
