Endorsements for Personal Mythology Book


Jean HoustonDr. Krippner was inspired by his contemporaries like Joseph Campbell, Jean Houston, June Singer, and many others. Read Personal Mythology: Using Ritual, Dreams, and Imagination to Discover Your Inner Story by David Feinstein, PhD and Stanley Krippner PhD – INRODUCTION BY JEAN HOUSTON. This is a wonderful essay about the value of working with myth, personally and culturally.


Joseph Campbell said Personal Mythology is: “A fresh and intriguing synthesis of a mythological perspective with contemporary psychological methods…”


Stanislav Grof said, “Continuing and expanding this work of C.G. Jung and Joseph Campbell, this important book explores the role of mythology in our lives and its relevance for the future of our planet.”


Jean Houston wrote an introduction to the third edition of the book, originally co-authored with Dr. David Feinstein and written again as Transform Your Mythic Path, now in its 3rd release as Personal Mythology: Using Ritual, Dreams, and Imagination to Discover Your Inner Story.
