Living Myth explores the dilemma of how to live life creatively at a time when the dominant myths of our culture are losing their power to give meaning to our lives. Using C. G. Jung's idea of discovering a "personal myth," D. Stephenson Bond reflects on the psychology of mythic imagination, as a force in both culture and individual life. He argues that meaning is experienced subjectively through the stirring of imagination and fantasy in the individual, which touches the larger impersonal, archetypal patterns. The book offers hopeful insights into the possibilities of cultural renewal and individual meaning through the restoration of the imagination.

About the Author:

D. Stephenson Bond is a practicing psychoanalyst who has lectured widely on the topics of myth and creativity. He is the author of four books, including the new novel Healing Lily (Alternative Views Publishing), and Living Myth: Personal Meaning As a Way of Life (Shambhala), The Archetype of Renewal (Inner City), and ). He graduated with an M.Div. from Vanderbilt in 1981 and from the C. G. Jung Institute, Boston, in 1997, where he still teaches.

From Library Journal:

Since Bill Moyers's public television interviews with Joseph Campbell a few years ago, which were subsequently published as The Power of Myth (Doubleday, 1988), a number of books have explored the importance of myths. According to the current author and other adherents of Campbell and C.G. Jung, myths arise from the collective unconscious, defined as that part of a person, which is attuned to the evolutionary development of the species and which speaks to individuals through dreams and fantasies. Jung's Man and His Symbols (1964) is still the best introduction to this material. Bond offers little new information. A better, more recent choice for public libraries is Thomas Moore's Care of the Soul (HarperCollins, 1992), which covers much the same material in a more interesting and concrete fashion.
