Your life is a story. It is better than any book you have ever read. You are the author and play the main part. The other roles in your story are acted by people around you.

Stories from around the world have familiar characters: the princess, the hero, the good mother, the wise man. These roles are based on universal figures called ‘archetypes’. LifeWorks introduces the twelve major archetypes, with examples from books and films. Each figure is illustrated with a story drawn from myth, legend and folktale.

LifeWorks is a practical handbook which combines insights from psychology and anthropology. Questions and tasks help you identify relationship patterns and life themes. Novelists and scriptwriters use this for character development and story trajectory.

Jane Bailey Bain’s writing has been compared to both Julia Cameron and Joseph Campbell. She combines personal insight with natural storytelling ability. LifeWorks is destined to become a new classic.
