Mythic Imagination’s tagline, every life is a story and a story can change the world, reveals the heart of our intention. It is the core faith that each person is a secret, each person a possible messiah. Maybe only a small messiah, maybe only of a small piece, but it is extremely dangerous to waste anyone – they might hold the key to solving climate change, or cancer, or low-calorie doughnuts. But in order for that to happen, each person must come true. The idea is to help people to become themselves through the connection to the true stories that the ancestors saved for us. The stories that give guidance on how to find your own voice, how to be alive until you die, how to find your own offering, how to offer your own finding.
John Lewis has supported our work, using his good offices lately to help move Creativity in Captivity forward. Having his imprimatur could not move me more. Today he was interviewed by Amy Goodman. If anything every embodied, every life is a story and a story can change the world, John Lewis’ story is it. If you want to hear the true voice, this is it. http://www.democracynow.org/2012/9/3/rep_john_lewis_civil_rights_icon
