Myth and Mindfulness: A Creative Response to Conflict
Catharine J. Jones examines our current personal identities as Americans from an analytical, psychological perspective, and explores the potential of confronting otherness through the myth of Anteros and Eros, addressing authoritarian vs. authoritative views in our complex, “overshadowing” political environment, where mindfulness aids in understanding others and ourselves.
