Visionary Worlds examines the role and significance of imagination and the myth-making processes that engage human beings in constructing a viable, living world of meaningful relations, beliefs, and social interactions. In this process of 'world-building, ' we each draw on a wide variety of ideologies, religious, philosophical, aesthetic or scientific, which often conflict and clash with one another in the struggle to evolve a coherent and meaningful worldview.This work examines the ways in which we all make and unmake our reality as part of the challenge of seeking greater spiritual maturity and relatedness to others.
