WOMEN RULE! Introduction to the Queen's Path
Create Female Characters that Rule the Screen!
Throughout history there has been a secret path for female story. It is NOT a heroine's journey, not a hero's journey. This path shows up across history and mythology for 6,000 years. And though we still use it to this day, it has only recently been discovered, described, and codified for writers to take advantage of.
Depth Psychology is dedicated to helping people find the deep patterns of behavior and habit. As such, it is concerned with the archetypal patterns in human cultures that impact individuals and societies. In researching family films and their impact on the psyches of audiences, an archetypal pattern emerged that has not been defined for writers before. Archetypal patterns come from US, not from researchers. The best a researcher can do is hope to add to understanding. The Queen's Path has been active in storytelling since the first myth was written down almost 6,000 years ago. In our culture it is emerging again as women take on roles that more accurately reflect their full capacity rather than the limits that patriarchy places on them.
