Clobbered by an Archetype: How the Good Shepherd Knocked Me Over and Carried Me Home
Stories make ideas come alive. The idea that animates this personal presentation is the astonishing ability of an archetypal image to enter, transform, and ground an individual life. The story that gives rise to it is a visceral and humbling encounter I had at age 28 with an archetypal image that seemed to come out of nowhere to transform and ground my life.
