This episode is the first 90 minutes of the course Mythology of the Great Self Within. From the course description:

World mythological traditions present many images of a Great Self that dwells within each human individual. This course examines a number of these images from mythological and spiritual traditions and then turns to a discussion of the psychological basis for this phenomenon. Special attention is given to the implications for our experience of both pathological grandiosity and creative visioning.

It was recorded in 1993.
