Mimesis, a group process, was intentionally designed to explore our relationship to myth. The Mimesis process provides a consistent unifying function for the book— its purpose, in a unique and creative way, is to help us pursue Jung’s task of tasks. Other sources of information presented include personal life stories; the therapeutic journeys of clients, and immersion in some of the culture and ceremonies of the Lakota Native American people. You are invited to travel the resulting river’s calm side pools as well as its rapids in a way that suits your journey best. Each chapter’s mythic themes also represent core psychological issues we must navigate to keep moving along and therefore, the chapters represent the developmental flow of a human life.
