‘The way we individually know peace is by being it.’

How will you create meaning for your life now?  Dr. Bolen has been pondering, researching and writing about these issues for years.


Jean Shinoda Bolen, M. D, is a psychiatrist, Jungian analyst, an internationally known author of 11 books and speaker who draws from spiritual, feminist, Jungian, medical and personal wellsprings of experience.  Jean lives in a world of full possibilities.

The Brahma Kumaris says “Om Shanti,” I am peace. Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me. When you’re peaceful, you’re happy and also grateful; you have a sense of being part of something and being at home in it. It’s a sense of oneness, great mystery; a sense you are not alone. You’re a solitude, but also in a deep way part of something large.

‘I think people don’t place a high enough value on how much they are nurtured by doing whatever it is that totally absorbs them.’

Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D.
