We structure our lives around specific meanings, as meanings attributed to events influence our behaviours. Thus, in order to express ourselves and make sense of our lives, we ‘story’ our experiences, because it is through this process of ‘storying’ that meaning is derived. It is notable that narrative perspectives exploring this storying process have been independently developed in several disparate areas. These include social linguistics (Linde 1993), models of humanity and science (MacIntyre 1980: 70; Danto 1985), theories of human action (MacIntyre 1985) and social science research (Sarbin and Kitsuse 1994).

However, the power of myths and stories to cross civilizations and their boundaries over time while maintaining an affinity with the whole experience of life can be utilized at a deep level of the world of the unconscious, through dreams and symbols, to provide a meaning of being and belonging. Or, at a more practical and fundamental level, they can be used to facilitate a model, outside to be taken in, to encourage insight and ultimate acceptance of those unacknowledged, unseen and possibly rejected parts of oneself.
