Celebrated scholar of archetypes and depth psychology Carol Pearson's modern classic The Hero Within has helped hundreds of thousands of people enrich their lives by revealing how to tap the power of the archetypes that exist within each of us. But our era of professional and familial pressures, constant connection, and renewed debate on “having it all” presents new and unprecedented challenges to contemporary women.

In Persephone Rising, Pearson, drawing on her profound understanding of myth’s enduring power to catalyze transformations, brings a fresh vision as only she can for meeting those challenges and rising above them. Guiding readers on a bold journey of self-discovery, Pearson teaches us how to activate and apply the archetypes of Demeter and Persephone—as well as Zeus and Dionysus—to our own lives, empowering readers to see the unexpected choices and opportunities available to us all.

Illuminating ancient wisdom for a modern audience, Persephone Rising offers profound strategies to answer the call to heroism in our own lives: the call to locate and harness the unique potential within each of ourselves, and, ultimately, to develop our own innate heroic gifts.

“Persephone Rising spoke to my bone marrow—its truths resonating with clarity and power. A beautiful retelling and updating of these ancient archetypes—so relevant today.”
—Christiane Northrup, MD, OB/GYN, and New York Times Bestselling Author

“Pearson writes with an eye toward empowering women, not by disparaging men, but by pointing us in the direction of our lost history.... Her work has always been an exploration of the flowers that bloom through the cracks in the sidewalk. It would appear that those flowers, and Pearson herself, are now positioned for a spectacular moment in the sun.”
—Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight
