In The Myth-Guided Mind, Michael Hynes delivers a powerful proposition: we are not nearly so broken as the devices we use to make us well. With a success rate of around 20 per cent, conventional therapy tactics turn us towards false answers and away from what we need most.

Hynes argues that healing techniques such as somatics, coupled with a reconnection to allegories that hide the keys to our happiness in plain sight, will lead us home. We need to access the same old stories to stop repeating our same old stories.

The fiction, he writes, isn't mythology, but rather the modern notion that those stories can't carry our hearts forward. It is, as Joseph Campbell long ago proposed, our false thoughts and not our myths that shackle us to the vicious treadmill of our lives.

Passionate, brave and grounded in enduring truths, The Myth-Guided Mind is an adventure for the spirit, the soul and the mind.

Michael Hynes is a Toronto-based corporate and personal coach. The Myth-Guided Mind is his first book.

About the Authors:

Michael Hynes has already cycled through a lifetime's worth of jobs. He has worked as a butcher, a banker, a painter and a psychotherapist. He has a BSc degree in Psychology from the University of Toronto and additional training in Psychotherapy and Emotional Bodywork and Visionary Craniosacral Work.

These days, business owners, creative executives and professionals from all avenues seek out his coaching because of its power and simplicity.

Mike lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Linda Hulme Leahy is a journalist and former bookseller who works as an editor and writer from her home, a heritage apple farm in Round Hill, Nova Scotia, where she lives with her husband, Miles, and four very bad cats.
