What guided you toward Jungian ideas and the ineffabble?

The same thing that guides butterflies on their migration, I suppose. Except instead of flapping my wings }{, I read. Jung writes so well about things that no one else has ever put into words. Also, everything that I am interested in cites Jung at some point- all roads lead to his work. My interest in folklife and how it is applied lead me to the subject of narrative therapy and its potential for social benefit. His work clarifies a great deal in these multidisciplinary interests. Jungs work has in many ways never been more relevant to the problems we face as a planet today.

Have you explored your personal myth ?

I have explored and do explore my personal myth, and I dare say it is a work in progress. I've also had the opportunity to live in community for a decade and reflect upon and explore the myth that I live with fantastic teachers who visited and hosted programs like Joan Halifax and Joanna Macy. I just recently moved back east to be closer to family. Mythic structure is comforting in its coherence and its continuity as I embrace all the transitions that coming home entails.

Will you read the assigned reading(s) for the respective Meetup?
