What can we learn from mythic traditions? Jean Houston talks to Michael Toms about her workshop called the Mystery School, which explores different themes each year. The most recent at the time of this interview is Sailing into the Millennium. She explains how the story of Odysseus applies to many people today, and that it can be used to learn that personal tragedy is part of a much larger picture. Because the mythic story continues, suffering is not the end; it is a door to growth and opportunity. They discuss the calling to become a heroine or hero in your own mythic story.
