"What Story Are You Living? shares the 'wisdom of the ages'. Carol Pearson and Hugh Marr's approach to archetypes has been invaluable in both my personal and professional life and will provide a well-structured way for others to use archetypes in their journeys to balance and wholeness." --Katharine D. Myers, Trustee, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Trust
"A beautifully conceived and important that can help anyone navigate the dark seas of our less than fully conscious waking lives. Archetypal patterns are revealed with delicate and brilliant clarity, along with wise counsel about how to live these dramas forward." --Jeremy Taylor, Founder and past President of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), Executive Director of the Marin Institute for Projective Dream Work (MIPD)
"Eminently usable. This important work provides access to the subtle archetypal influences that guide our future development and offers ways for understanding, integrating, and shifting one's archetypal alignments." --Michael Conforti, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst, author, and Founder and President of the Assisi Institute for the Study of Archetypal Pattern Analysis
