A creative response to Jung's call to individuation. Yungblut suggests that our personal myth (or belief statement) should address the following features: how the world came into existence, who humans are, how God relates to humans, what the "feminine" can add to our worldview, how forgiveness changes the world, and how we view death.

Yungblut relies heavily on Teilhard de Chardin in the creation of his own personal myth but gives the reader room to imagine what her own myth might involve.
