Description

Robert Bly poet, storyteller and mythologist takes us on an imaginative and disturbing journey in this live recording. Disturbing both personally and historically, the commentary reminds us that the mythology we have inherited is often defective.

One story reports that the very moment we are born a snake appears with us which the doctor throws out the window and, unknown to us, has been growing large in the forest.

Just as the church refused to accept the reality Galileo saw in his telescope, literalists have removed from mythology, by refusing to include them, the dark soul images that nourished our ancestors.
