Using myth and archetype to develop your life story
Editor's Description: Why did your life turn out this way? Who are the most important people in your world? What would you do differently, if you had the chance?
Your life is a story. It is better than any book you have ever read. Your story defines who you are and what happens to you. Ever since you were a child, you have been writing your own life script. You use stories you have heard to weave your personal narrative. The parts in your script are played by the people around you.
Some of the oldest stories still seem relevant to us today. The characters in them are familiar: the princess, the hero, the good mother, the wise old man. These characters are based on universal figures called archetypes. LifeWorks introduces the twelve major archetypes, with examples from books and films. Each figure has a story, drawn from myths and legends around the world.
The Essence of Storytelling
Foreward by Deena Metsger
Our Secret Territory is composed of revelations from the life of a world famous storyteller including extensive travel and projects spanning thirty years. It helps readers understand the power of storytelling as a profound and unique art form combining modern solo theater, spoken literature, spirituality, and direct oral tradition akin to ancient ritual. The book is shaped with stories and poems and a remarkable fairytale that weaves in and out of a life of experiences: rescuing ex-child soldiers from a devastating war; working with epic singers, Native American storytellers and Tibetan meditation masters; designing a playground; telling tales to Roma mothers and children; and saving a zoo in Northern Romania.
The Role of Left- and right-Brain Dominance in the Polarization and Reunification of America

Foreward by Sark

Like the shaman, the storyteller is a walker between the worlds, a mediator between our known world and that of the unknown – someone who is able to commune with dragons and elves, with faeries and angels, with magical and mythical beasts, with Gods and Goddesses, heroes and demons; someone who is able to pass freely from this world into those above and those below and to help us to experience those other realms for ourselves. He or she is not only the archetypal magician but also the archetypal guide. In Tales of Power Dr Michael Berman shares with the reader the craft of the storyteller along with many shamanic tales of power from around the world. The book also includes guidance on becoming a storyteller and using the story as ceremony.
