This is an amazing book! It draws on anthropology, psychology and sociology to explain the power of myth in our lives. The book looks at 12 archetypal figures and retells myths and folktales from a range of cultures. The stories are followed by questions that explore our reactions to the archetypes and relate the myths to our own lives, a fascinating exercise. We can use insights gained from myths in a practical way to help us reach our potential, an empowering and creative tool. 'LifeWorks' is well-written, informative and thought-provoking. It is also a pleasure to read. I thoroughly recommend it.

A wonderfully refreshing anaylsis of the archetypes that exist within us all. The author invites the reader to explore his or her own inner landscape and experience just how these archetypal characters inform and influence our lives - and discover the gift each one of them brings us. A great guide for those interested in understanding our deeper psychological and spiritual nature.

Why did your life turn out this way? Who are the most important people in your world? What would you do differently, if you had the chance?
Your life is a story. Ever since you were a child, you have been composing your own 'life script'. You can choose who has a part to play, and decide what will happen next.
'LifeWorks' helps you to identify relationship patterns and life themes. It is a practical handbook combining insights from psychology and anthropology. Stories and exercises help you to develop your own 'personal mythology'.
These tools can also be used by writers for plot analysis and character development.
