An earlier version of this book used the title, The Mythic Path.

"A fresh and intriguing synthesis of a mythological perspective with contemporary psychological methods..."

~ Joseph Campbell


Every life unfolds like a story. To follow the "mythic path" is to become exquisitely conscious of the ways you are a co-author with fate of this mythic-level drama. Personal Mythology draws upon the most significant ideas from consciousness research and the most powerful self-development tools available. Through it, you will delve into the underlying themes that shape your life, assess how they serve you, and where they do not reflect your highest wisdom, transform them. The program includes a book and coordinated CDs that are carefully crafted into a 12-week program of one to two sessions per week.

Personal Mythology is a powerful antidote for modern lives caught in the disorienting grip of a world in turmoil. This newly expanded and updated edition brings to you a highly successful seminar that has been evolving for over three decades. An engaging book/tape "workshop," it is being assigned as homework by a growing number of psychotherapists and used to structure meetings in numerous men's and women's groups, recovery programs, and other settings where people are committed to deep personal change.

A captivating 12-week program that will teach you how to tap into deep sources of wisdom and find greater fulfillment in these challenging times

The 3-CD set takes you through the guided imagery and other inner journeys that are part of the program presented in the Personal Mythology book. The journeys are enhanced with original music by Ann Mortifee. The CDs cannot be meaningfully used without the book.

"Brilliantly conceived and beautifully written, [this book] opens new ground in the fields of personal and social transformation. Its guidance is expert and exemplary, giving the reader powerful and luminous procedures . . ."

~ Jean Houston, Ph.D

Discovering the Guiding Stories of Your Past - Creating a Vision for Your Future

Your personal mythology--comprised of beliefs and motivations that operate largely outside your conscious awareness--is the internal guidance system that shapes your journey. The more effective your guiding mythology, the better equipped you are to meet the challenges your life presents.

Personal Mythology will help you:

  • Become less bound by the grip of outmoded patterns from your childhood and your culture
  • Recognize crises of faith, courage, and identity as calls for renewal in your personal mythology
  • Cultivate a vision that empowers you and nurtures your finest qualities
  • Explore your dynamic role in your culture's evolving mythology
  • Foster your appreciation of humanity's larger story
  • Embark upon a spiritually attuned journey of self discovery
