Dr. Jeanette welcomes Judith-Kate Friedman, steward of the Mythsinger Legacy Project and representing Daniel Deardorff’s book The Other Within: The Genius of Deformity in Myth, Culture and Psyche, to explore his life story.
What is the myth of our existence? Is life an illusion of our mind? What is perfection of the human that we claim is the only way to survive? What happens when a deformity is the human cloak you wear everyday, can you still exist or do you need to hide?
How does polio take over a life and change the trajectory of a story that has not been written?
Can you explore all the other modalities of the world and find the story that fits your legacy, be it, myth, shamanic, healing, medicine, religion, philosophy and other exploration of the mind and body?
Are we trying to attain perfection and everything else is not in our world or in our existence? Perhaps society has projected a picture of deformity and of a human that we have been holding for decades. When something is out of the boundary or not as defined, it is cast out and left to the side to have a sense of non-existence. How can a less than perfect entity exist in a world that requires perfection for success and survival? How far have we come in our human evolution to learn the difference in our words, beliefs and truths that no longer fit and be willing to create a new way of being human at this time in this century?
“The other is the core spirit of the eons of our soul journey, the path of enlightenment” shares Dr. Jeanette
