Mythology is a passion of mine, especially Greek mythology with its fascinating pantheon of Goddesses. Equally I love Celtic, Hindu Norse and Egyptian mythology, yet I feel the names and archetypes from the Greek are better known so I have chosen to concentrate on them and refer to their counterparts in other traditions. I have spoken to many young women under twenty who are equally passionate; there appears to be a revival of sorts stirring and all of a sudden ‘Mythology is Cool!’
Closely connected to Mythology is my passion for Carl Jung, one of the founding fathers of modern psychology. Jung saw dreams along with myths and stories as being important clues to our subconscious and our psyche. The theory goes somewhat like this – pay attention to your dreams because the rich symbolism is a clue to understanding your deeper emotional issues and therefore a way to heal trauma and hurt within ourselves. Equally the stories of the Goddesses in mythology mirror our own story at different stages in our life’s journey. This is called ‘identification with archetypes’.
