3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
With gorgeous stop-motion animation and enlightening interviews, Mythic Journeys seeks to reclaim the power of myth, which is the reservoir of human wisdom. The filmmakers gained access to Deepak Chopra and other spiritual leaders for a rich and stimulating dialogue, which is woven in with the astonishing puppetry of Brian and Wendy Froud (The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth). Using the voices of Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), and Lance Henriksen (Alien), the beautiful animated sequence tell the story of a sorcerer, a king, and a talkative corpse, which acts as a fascinating parable on morality and the limits of perception. Mythic Journeys is thought-provoking, as well as entertaining, and skeptics and believers alike will find it refreshingly inspirational
