April C. Heaslip, PhD, is mythologist and educator who earned her doctorate in Mythological Studies with emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her dissertation “Regenerating Magdalene: Psyche’s Quest for the Archetypal Bride” considers the impact of the resurgence of the feminine in culture as healing agent for psyche, communitas, and Gaia. Uniting interconnected levels of inquiry within Gender + Women's Studies, Literary + Film Studies, and post-Jungian Psychology, her work focuses on applied ecofeminist mythology and the curative powers of creativity.
