Review

"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

Format: Paperback
"We connect by telling each other stories. We can better understand ourselves by recognizing and exploring our life narratives. Your life story is the tale that you repeatedly tell yourself about who you are, what you want, and what you can and cannot do." - From the book What Story Are You Living?

It can be difficult to discover personal meaning and purpose when we don't zoom out to get a big picture of the patterns we are living. One way we can discover these patterns is through exploring the narrative threads woven through our preferences and behaviors. These narratives, or personal stories, arise from archetypes--or universal templates, themes and symbols--that resonate cross-culturally.

According to author Carol Pearson, Ph.D., there are twelve main archetypal patterns along the three stages of the "hero's journey", which map out the progression to individuation. Rather than a linear journey, Dr. Pearson explains that the path is actually a spiral one, where we re-visit previous stages and themes with increasing awareness and wisdom.

In this journey, we "play out" twelve main archetypal patterns identified by Dr. Pearson: Innocent, Orphan, Warrior, Caregiver, Seeker, Lover, Destroyer, Creator, Ruler, Magician, Sage and Jester. To identify the main stories we are living, Dr. Pearson, along with Dr. Hugh Marr, has created the PMAI--the Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator.

What Story Are You Living? by Pearson and Marr provides two self-scoring PMAI instruments that have been scientifically validated. In addition, this fascinating book--written at an eighth-grade reading level--explains mythic stories, how we live out particular narratives, archetypal stages of the journey and more.

Janet Boyer's first review of this book is excellent and it gives you a good introduction to this book and the original book it was based on.

I read the "Awakening the Hero Within" book in about 1995. It has meant a great deal to me in personally understanding my own story better and I continue to keep updated through the website which they have developed. I have taught a couple courses using its material in our local library in trying to get people to write their own stories. I use the PMAI with my Philosophy classes at a local university in NJ and the students find it very helpful.

I was delighted to see this "follow-up" and analysis of the PMAI published in 2006 and I continue to find good insights from their work.

Excellent book to start with.

Is it worth the price? That is why I am 4 staring instead of 5.
If it came in around $12 $14,more of us would know about this work.
The worlds we live in would be amore peaceful loving place.
