Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, said, “The person who thinks they can live without myth, or outside it, is like one uprooted. That person has no true link with the ancestral life that continues within each of us, or with contemporary human society.” You need a sacred story. Discerning your sacred story is essential for knowing what will root and sustain you through passions, loves, loss or hard times as an individual and in our community. What does discernment involve and mean? How do you go about creating your sacred story?
