In Jungian analyst and activist Jean Shinoda Bolen’s writing, symbol, archetype, soulwork, and synchronicity come together with activism and the potential to change the world or save the planet when grassroots and enlightened leaders work together. “Moving Toward the Millionth Circle,” inspires and enlists women to be millionth circle, heart-centered activists in order to energize a 5th World Conference on Women in the 21st Century. The conference is not a goal in and of itself, but a means toward valuing women and the feminine to bring about a tipping point.
“Moving Toward the Millionth Circle” is a sequel to Dr. Bolen’s popular “The Millionth Circle” (1999) with a slightly different focus. Her first book describes how real change happens when a critical number of people adopt a new perspective with how-to sections on ways to create women’s circles with a sacred center. While still about women’s circles, her new book focuses more on activism and how these circles can help to sustain and support (and be a sanctuary for) women working for change in their lives and in the world.
