Beyond the Mist
What Irish Mythology Can Teach Us About OurselvesBook - 2000
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. This introduction to Irish mythology also explores its contemporary relevance to the mysteries, unknowns and vicissitudes of life. It explores the various divine and mortal 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.
