Making Sense of Religion and Mythology, 3 June 2002
Author: Gerkins8 from Casas Adobes, AZ, USA

This series opened my eyes to the possibilities of the human life journey. Now, all that I had been taught on Sundays found integration with the rest of the week. Seeing metaphorically changes everything. This is a long series, but need not be viewed in a single sitting. Even though "The Power of Myth" still runs occasionally on PBS, for those whose lives have been irrevocably touched by Joseph Campbell will want to add this ground breaker to their collection.
