Storied Lives: Discovering and Deepening Your Personal Myth
(Living Myth Series Book 1)
Most books on discovering one's "personal myth" focus on uncovering the general patterns or scripts of a life. STORIED LIVES by depth psychologist Craig Chalquist, PhD goes much farther by showing how specific myths play out from cradle to grave. Personal accounts of discovering and working with these myths enliven the book's emphasis on refashioning these plot lines from the inside out.
"This marvelous book focuses on finding one's own mythic story, and then living that myth with full awareness. Dr. Chalquist advocates living in the light of one's myth, and reworking traditional mythologies to tell fresh and vital versions of old stories. Storied Lives is visionary and practical, profound yet reader-friendly. Many of its readers will never be the same again and will thank Dr. Chalquist for their newly inspired life stories." --Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., co-author of Personal Mythology
