MYTHIC JOURNEY: Use Myths, Fairy Tales, and Folklore to Explain Life's Mysteries Book
Greek gods, Norse heroes, Polynesian tricksters, and Native American warriors -- they all have lessons to teach us. Since the beginning of time, human beings have relied on myths, fairy tales, and fables to explain life's mysteries and to elucidate human nature. Bringing a fresh perspective to these age-old tales, the authors reveal how modern audiences on their own life journeys can find comfort and support in the legends and lore of the past.
More than 50 myths are beautifully retold, and each is followed by a psychological overview explaining the application the story can have in our own lives. The tales are further brought to life with striking artwork by Peter Paul Rubens, Gustav Klimt, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, William Blake, and many more artists who found inspiration in these stories.
