The Space Between Stories

with Charles Eisenstein

“The world is in a time of transition in the deep mythology that runs our civilization,” says Charles Eisenstein. “Many of us personally are in such a transition as well. Often, it is a crisis that initiates this transition, a crisis in work, health, or relationship. For some, the breakdown happens in every area simultaneously: an initiation into a new phase of life. In this transition, the old story of who we are, what is normal, what is possible, what is real, and how to live life falls apart, as we prepare to step into a new story.
