Description

Ancient mythology can be seen as a source of understanding of the universal themes and conflicts that have beset human beings throughout time, such as the transitory nature of life, the inevitability of separateness, and the existence of the personal and collective unconscious. Beyond the Mist is an introduction to Irish mythology which also explores its contemporary relevance to the mysteries, unknowns and vicissitudes of life. It explores the various divine and other figures as symbolic aspects of the individual psyche and the unconscious mind, while providing insights into these repressed aspects of our inner life and suggesting appropriate ways of relating to and integrating these qualities.show more
