JOIN THIS MYTHIC LIFE
Live a life that’s full of mystery, bursting with possibility – an authentic life that will challenge you to wholeheartedly embrace your soul’s calling.
‘This Mythic Life’ Membership Programme
PArt mystery school, part journey to personal transformation
As a psychologist specialising in myth and the deep imagination, I’m passionate about helping people to uncover and step into rich new visions for their lives. Our ancient Western wisdom traditions tell us that it’s through exercising the embodied and emplaced imagination – through working with myth, archetypes, dreams, fairy tales, and through exploring creative and expressive practices – that we can come to understand our unique gift and purpose, and weave ourselves back into the anima mundi – the soul of the world.
This Mythic Life, then, is a unique membership program which guides you to revive these old enchantments, and supports you while you’re delving deep into the mysteries of wild psyche.
Part mystery school, part journey to personal transformation, This Mythic Life is for you if:
– You feel as if you’re between stories, and are looking for new stories to illuminate who you are, and what your place in the world might be;
– You’re yearning for meaning, and for ways of feeling a profoundly embodied sense of belongingness to this beautiful, animate Earth;
– You’d like to understand your own individual mythopoetic journey: to understand the mystery which lies at the heart of you, and to uncover the unique gift that you bring to the world in these challenging times;
– You’d like to learn how to cultivate your mythic imagination, and understand the mythic and archetypal patterns at work beneath the surface of your life;
– You’re longing to live a life that embraces mystery, and is bursting with possibility – an authentic life that will challenge you to wholeheartedly inhabit your unique calling;
– You’d like to move beyond the merely theoretical, and be challenged to create new ways of thinking about the world and your place in it, and new practices which will help you to live more deeply and richly, every day.
This Mythic Life is a unique monthly membership program for people who want to delve deeper into my work. Whether or not you’ve read my books, or participated in my distance learning courses or in-person workshops, This Mythic Life will provide you with ongoing resources to help you make deep, meaningful and sustainable changes in your life, and support you on your journey to embrace your soul’s calling. The program offers you:
This Mythic Life is founded on authentic scholarship and my decades of professional training and practice in psychology and mythology, as well as committed engagement in the mythopoetic and other creative arts.
The old forgotten pre-Christian mythologies and philosophies of the West are rich, complex and beautiful. They offer up a world in which everything is alive, and has purpose and intentionality of its own. A world to which each incarnated soul chooses to come, for a reason: to fulfil its own unique calling, and to offer up a gift which can only be expressed through relationship with and participation in that animate world. It’s time to reclaim those old, indigenous ways of being in the world – the ancient foundation-stones of Western spirituality – and make them the guiding stars we live by.
Each month, you’ll be offered a ‘challenge’ to focus on in the weeks ahead, along with live webinar ‘lessons’, audio downloads, practical tools and creative exercises to help you find your path.
You’ll receive weekly emails from me with reflections, quotes, poems and other inspirations to encourage you along the way.
Our private, independent discussion forum will offer you a place to ask me for support, information and advice as you proceed along your journey of discovering and uncovering.
The forum will allow you to share insights and experiences with like-minded souls across the world, and to connect with members in your local area who are on a similar path.
Each month, I’ll challenge you to focus in deeply on a particular aspect of cultivating the mythic imagination. One month we might work on tending our dreams; another month we might focus on connecting in an imaginal way with our places; another time we might delve deeply into the meanings of a particular archetype, myth or fairy tale.
MONTHLY LIVE SESSIONS
One weekday each month at 4pm UK/Irish time (in North America, 11am ET, 10am CT, 9am MT or 8am PT), you’ll be invited to log into the membership site and join me on a live-streamed video call. If you can’t attend, a post-call recording will be available to watch at your convenience. The subject matter will reflect our monthly challenge, and you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A.
MONTHLY AUDIO DOWNLOADS
Each month I’ll create a new and exclusive audio file featuring a guided meditation, imaginal journey, or related practice, which you’ll be able to download for your continued use.
Each month you’ll be invited to view or download a workbook containing practical tools and creative exercises to help you navigate our monthly challenge.
Each week you’ll receive an email from me with a reflection, quote, poem or other inspiration to encourage you along the way.
On our independent, supportive community forum, you can share revelations and get advice from your fellow travellers, or ask questions of me, as you move through the monthly themes and challenges. Local/regional boards on the forum will allow you to connect with and organise meet-ups with people who live in your part of the world.
