About the Author
Kim Hudson grew up in the Yukon, a father’s daughter with a Cinderella complex. She spent many years exploring her masculine side as a field geologist and a First Nations’ Land Claims negotiator before studying at Vancouver Film School, University of British Columbia, and the International School of Analytical Psychology Zurich. Kim’s personal journey and scholarly inquiry combined to develop this theory of the Virgin’s archetypal structure. Over the past four years Kim has given workshops and classes in the Vancouver area on the Virgin’s Promise.

This book covers all the Jungian archetypes much better (and faster) than 45 Master Characters and goes into step-by-step detail on each phase of the feminine heroic journey, including several possible variations for each. And it gives plenty of movie examples, including a section showing how closely the selected films follow the journey's steps.
There are lots of helpful at-a-glance tables comparing and contrasting the failed and successful masculine and feminine journeys and archetypes and worksheets for you to create your own.Read more ›
Hudson illustrates the beats of the journey, and the archetypes, which Virgins frequently encounter on their path to transformation. If your main character is trapped, oppressed, or out of touch with their true potential, this guide will help you shape his/her journey to light!
