Application of the MythoSelf® Process
The MythoSelf Process is applicable to every area of life because it is about how you are being in any given moment. It teaches you how to organize yourself so that you are at your best, and it offers the possibility of improving everything from relationship problems, to work difficulties, to your health. Ultimately it is addressing the existential longing that people suffer in modern society, but as far as most people who train with us are concerned, they came because some area of their life sucks.
For some people, "Greater Than Self "could be described as G-d, others Nature, others Love, or the Universe. It doesn't really matter what label is given to it. It is simply about a way of being in life, and the decisions that we make to support that way of being.
Joseph Campbell referred to this way of being as following your bliss. James Joyce as "stream of consciousness". Carl Jung referred to it as finding what myth you are living - the "mythic quest".
The Mythic Quest
The way of the world during the 18th and 19th centuries was such that the emphasis was on the search for self, and by the 20th century this had reached the masses. This means a move toward individuation and away from finding ourselves within our society and culture. This movement towards self can be seen particularly in the popularity of "human potential" and "personal development" technologies during the third and fourth quarters of this century.
The history of the human species is social and cultural. Yet this new reference of the self as "apart from" as opposed to "a part of" the larger society is a uniquely modern concept. It's become so common and ubiquitous that it's virtually unnoticeable. There is the quest for self-recognition, self-reward, self-acknowledgment - at any cost.
The original quest was for how we fit into the overall pattern. How do we recognize our place among others and become something greater than ourselves through this connection. This is the mythic quest. The myth is always in relation to something greater than self. However in the rush of modern psychology's desire to define and uncover the personal self, the greater collective of whom we are a part has become lost. This is the root of the existential longing that modern society suffers. The sense that all there is, is the self. The desire to know ones self, has driven out the awareness of the collective, which in our history and prehistory as a species we all enjoyed.
The MythoSelf® Process is a series of exercises that collectively form a set of instructions on how to achieve your true potential, while awakening that awareness of the collective, and keeping a connection to it as you move through life.
The MythoSelf Process - Basic Principles
Ideas about who a person knows themselves to be, relationships with others, and ones relationship with the universe at large, form the basis for how MythoSelf Process facilitators and trainers think about having a life that works. The MythoSelf Process holds that:
