The Six Archetypes of Love Book Description:

Addressing the need to understand the role of love in life, this compendium of startling insights relates love to the spiritual development in each of six universal archetypes. Attempting to answer such questions as What is love? How do we find it and how can we keep it? Why are there so many puzzling forms of it? and Why do so many people get it so wrong?, the book shows how love relates to the self-awareness in spiritual development for each archetype. Whether describing an Innocent, a Magician, a Monarch, an Orphan, a Pilgrim, or a Warrior-Lover, the featured archetype profiles offer essential guidance about what level of awareness is currently being lived, how to transition to the next stage, and how love can be nurtured. Each stage of development is tied to the ancient wisdom of the Tarot—the visual images of which act as reminders as to what to expect on life's journey—supported by real-life and pop culture examples that provide more immediate accessibility.

Remembering the Soul of You Book Description:

In 1998, someone asked me to contemplate the question, “Who am I?” When I removed all the labels such as daughter, wife, mother and teacher and then, even my name too, I realised how vulnerable I was. I wondered what was left of ‘me’? That was the catalyst that began my search for the Greater Me - my eternal Spirit-self. As I searched, listened and read, I gained new belief systems that were wider than religion and more liberating than my social conditioning. The greatest freedom came though, when I finally understood the language of symbols; especially those used in the ancient Marseilles Tarot Pack. I spent almost twenty years exploring the blueprint of the archetypes that are embedded in these cards. Each of the 22 major arcana cards took me on a deep souljourney towards consciousness, knowledge and a change of heart. What I discovered was that I am more than I could ever have imagined and so are you. When we become conscious of painful and inhibiting beliefs that no longer serve us, we begin a journey into loving acceptance of ‘self’ and others too.

Mythic Imagination and the Actor Book Description:

In Mythic Imagination and the Actor, Marissa Chibás draws on over three decades of experience as a Latinx actor, writer, filmmaker, and teacher to offer an approach to acting that embraces collective imagination, archetypal work, and the mythic. The book begins with a comparative analysis between method acting and mythic acting, encouraging actors to push past the limits of singular life experience and move to a realm where imagination and metaphor thrive. In the context of mythic acting, the book explores awareness work, solo performance creation, the power of archetypes, character building exercises, creating a body/text connection, and how to be the detective of your own process. Through this inclusive guide for a new age of diverse performers traversing gender, ability, culture, and race, readers are able to move beyond their limits to a deep engagement with the infinite possibilities of rich imagination. The final chapter empowers and motivates artists to live healthfully within the practice and create a personal artistic vision plan. Written for actors and students of acting, American Drama, and film and theatre studies, Mythic Imagination and the Actor provides practical exercises and prompts to unlock and interpret an actor’s deepest creative sources.
