Meet the Author

After a first career practicing pediatrics as a Physician Assistant, I opted to live my passion for learning and enter into a graduate program at Pacifica Graduate Institute (pacifica.edu). I pursued and completed my doctorate in April 2011 in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology.This ebook is merely my dissertation project, an intentionally scholarly work that argues that ancient myths and literature provide a wisdom literature all its own holding deep insights that can help us to ease the end of the life journey for ourselves and for those we love.I am currently working on a more accessible rewrite, that takes out the argument and returns the beauty of the stories. In the meantime, I hope that you will take a moment to explore the pages of what is here. I am always open to thoughts and ideas that my readers might have regarding this exploration.In addition, any income from the sales of this work will be donated to assist the victims of Hurricane SandyHope you enjoy reading this work as much as I have enjoyed researching and writing it.
