Welcome to the podcast! Today I’m delighted to be joined by Dr. Marilyn Steele. Marilyn 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.
Marilyn’s career began with education, and progressed to psychology, art, writing and speaking. Marilyn completed her Masters of Education from The Raskob Institute in 1979 and worked with gifted adolescents with learning disabilities. She later returned to school for her Master’s and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA, concentrating on female psychology and the evolution of consciousness.
During her career as a Jungian psychologist, Marilyn also taught at graduate schools and provided continuing education for psychotherapists on the topics of female psychology and re-visioning the self.

In 2013, Marilyn published her first book: The Wild Feminine: Stories to Inspire and Embolden. She is enjoying her home in Northern California and her return to painting.
