Marilyn Steele, Ph.D., is a Jungian psychologist, author, speaker, artist, mother and grandmother. She grew up in Hawaii, a land of great beauty and native wisdom where life is deeply intertwined with nature and its rhythms. She still considers Hawaii, a place alive with the sacred feminine, her soul home. She visits as often as possible. The early loss of her baby sister, and later, the death of her younger brother, cultivated a deep compassion in her for suffering people and the mysteries of life and death. This drew her into a career in psychology. A stronger calling arose after the births of her children, several powerful visions, and a surprising passion for the emerging new science. When her four year old daughter complained in 1977 “I know all about history. What about Herstory?” Marilyn realized she was quite frustrated and annoyed at the then current models of the self which excluded women’s experiences, perspectives, inclusive thinking and feeling and core spiritual values. She dedicated herself to exploring and describing the science and spirituality of the self, informed by the archetypal psychology of the dynamic, transformative Feminine.
During her career as a Jungian psychologist Marilyn has spoken internationally, taught at numerous graduate schools, provided continuing education seminars on the topics of female psychology, the evolution of consciousness, and a re-visioning of the self. Dr. Steele is dedicated to helping women access their wild feminine power and returning feminine power, creativity and wisdom to the world. She lives in Northern California.
