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.

From the Publisher:

Storied Lives, a book about discovering "the story behind your story," is the first book in our LIVING MYTH SERIES.

It has been claimed that we live in a time without myth. But if C.G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, Hermann Hesse, Thomas Mann, Mary Shelley, Robert Graves, Jorge Luis Borges, F. Scott Momaday, and a host of other preeminent minds are correct, then myth is always with us and all around us as the basic psychic weave that holds our relations with ourselves, each other, and the living world. The real question is whether we resonate to the weave of myth consciously or unconsciously, knowingly or involuntarily, even tragically.

The Living Myth Series seeks to foster consciousness of the presence and power of myth in our lives. In the end myth is story, and story always says more about the heights and depths of human experience than facts or figures can by themselves.

The Series is being published at a time when the humanities have yet again been deprived of public funding for being insufficiently "practical." Yet if we knew our stories and traditions better, and valued the richness of our literary and artistic legacies, we might treat each other and the planet itself with greater understanding and compassion. At its best, the study of myth requires imaginative engagement, thinking in the round, intensive self-questioning, and growth of a capacity for grasping contrasting "pantheons" of choices, possibilities, and perspectives. It expands the heart as well as the mind. An education of the soul reaching into multiple levels of the naturally relational self is what this Series hopes to encourage.

From the Back Cover:

What is the myth behind your story?

C. G. Jung used the term "personal myth" to ­d­escribe how ­collective stories, images, and motifs recur in our lives. Over time, however, Jung's term was watered down until it came to mean a kind of personal fiction one could change out of and discard like an old garment.

Storied Lives continues Jung's emphasis on the power of myth by showing how the old tales reinvent themselves continually during the course of a life, replaying with the force of fate when kept out of awareness but inviting creative recasting when consciously tended.
