This episode is the first session of the series Cosmos as Myth and Human Possibility. From the description:

More and more people are beginning to raise the question of whether it is realistic to hope for the continued viability of our home planet. Jungian analyst and author Robert Moore (King, Warrior, Magician, Lover) leads a workshop examining the cross-cultural mythology of the struggle for Cosmos, for a just and peaceful world order, a struggle that has fascinated our forebears for thousands of years.

In addition to analyzing the central characteristics of the mythology of Cosmos, this workshop examines the ties between selfhood and world-making, inner work and outer engagement, personal dreaming and the world future. It concludes with a reflection on the significance of this mythology for our contemporary efforts to envision a viable human and humane future in a sustainable ecological environment.

It was recorded in 1993.
