'...Wieland shows how we can use the ancient wisdom of myths and legends to enter into a creative process of self-discovery. Through the imagery of the Grail Legend--and with a wealth of unique exercises and guided fantasies--he invites us to explore our own life story as a heroic journey....A central image of the Grail Story is the wounded king whose land has turned to desert...Wieland explains how our problems are likewise related to the degradation of our environment, and demonstrates how the recovery of our visions and our creative potential can contribute to the healing of our planet.'
