The Mythic and the Marvelous?

“The Night Wages” (Cista Mystica Press, 2019), a rumination on the vitality of ancient stories in modern times.
In troubled times it can be easy to fall into either despair or numbness, and it was a traditional role of the storyteller to rouse both beauty and vocation in such moments.
To attend to the grace.
Dr Martin Shaw is author of the award-winning Mythteller trilogy (“A Branch From The Lightning Tree”, “Snowy Tower”, “Scatterlings”), he founded the Oral Tradition and Mythic Life courses at Stanford University, whilst being director of the Westcountry School of Myth in the UK. 
He has introduced thousands of people to mythology and how it penetrates modern life.
For twenty years Shaw has been a wilderness rites of passage guide, working with at-risk youth, the sick, returning veterans and many women and men seeking a deeper life.
