With a focus on Greco-Roman and Judeo-Christian mythology, this innovative investigation into the biological basis of myths and dreams enlarges on the work of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. The author concludes that myths have their origins in esoteric descriptions of what occurs within the human body during shamanic trance, a natural state which was once at the core of religious experience but was then distilled into such spiritual practices as the Indian tradition of yoga.
