In this video I tell the story of Athena, the Greek Goddess of wisdom and warfare. The Roman version of this Goddess is called Minerva.

Athena is a daughter of Zeus and Metis, an oceanid. There's also another version that states that Athena is the daughter of Pallas, a giant, therefore she got the epithet Pallas Athena.

In the video, I explain her origin, her symbols, her archetypes, how she was "masculinized" and more associated with warfare then to wisdom. I also comment about an ancient Greek ritual to keep the feminine side of Athena alive.
