  • A Short History of Myth: The Myths

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 30 mins)

    Story

    The history of myth is the history of humanity; our stories and beliefs, our curiosity and attempts to understand the world, link us to our ancestors and each other. Myths help us make sense of the universe. Armstrong takes us from the Palaeolithic period and the myths of the hunters right up to the "Great Western Transformation" of the last 500 years and the discrediting of myth by science.

    Overall

    As usual, Karen Armstrong delivers the goods as she explains how humankind's beliefs in the gods have changed as his way of life shifted, while the need to believe persists throughout history. I specially liked that although she used to be a Catholic nun she does not moralize or make a case for monotheism vs polytheism.

    Story

    Every night you receive messages from the deepest recesses of your subconscious mind: you dream. But often these messages are cloaked in mysterious symbols and imagery. Only by learning to understand and interpret them can you take full advantage of the knowledge and power hidden within your dreams. This classic work of dream interpretation takes you through the classic Jungian approach to dreaming philosophy and psychology.

    Jeremy says: "A decent aid to Jungian study"
    "A good intro to Jung"
    Overall

    Jung's model of the psyche in a nutshell. Tha author does a good job at explaining the key concepts of analytical psychology and gives a short step by step account of how to go abaout making sense of your mind's night time creations.

  • The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell

    • ORIGINAL (5 hrs and 12 mins)

    Story
    (152)

    Over a span of 12 years (1975 to 1987), New Dimensions Radio host Michael Toms recorded conversations between the late Joseph Campbell (author of The Power of Myth) and himself, during which time they developed a close friendship. In these stimulating conversations, central questions in the search for understanding and knowledge of the spiritual universe in which we live are explored.

    C. Weidner says: "What wisdom!!!"
    "Repetitive, repetitive, repetitive"
    Overall

    Given Campbell's wealth of knowledge I expected this recording to be more insightful but Toms and Campbell kept going back to the same questions and answers (the Black Elk example is used no less than 3 times)so that by the end you get the feeling you've been listening to an old scratched record.
