Catherine Svehla's Biography

I'm a writer and storyteller with a PhD in Mythological Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I'm interested in our cultural mythology: our shared ideas about the world, what it means to be human, what consitutes a successful and satisfying life. Mythology is psychology. I don't think the story that we're telling and the myth that we're living works anymore (if it ever did). 

My mission is to contribute to a new mythos, one that supports a more sustainable, just, tolerant, and beautiful way of life. Or as Jospeh Campbell, said,"to participate joyfully in the sorrrows of the world."
