In this multimedia presentation, Bernie Clark will present several stories from the East and the West that highlight what base maps we have created and follow unknowingly through our daily life. Stories entertain us and entrance us, but even more importantly they guide us through life. Our stories soak deep into our unconscious mind and form these base maps that we follow. Stories from other cultures can sometimes be even more useful for us, better than our current stories, but only if we understand what they mean. By getting to know what great mythic themes you base your life on, you can start to make skilful choices as to which stories really work for you.
