The gods and goddesses of ancient myths are archetypes that describe what each of us undergoes in discovering the fullness of human experience. "Stories are a combination of that which happens and that of which we also dream," says storyteller Diane Wolkstein. In this interview brimming with stories and dreams, she tells how she discovered the variety and similarities in the world's oldest love stories from many cultures. She also shares stories from Haiti and her own dream journal. We are taken on a rich guided tour of Heaven, Earth and the underworld. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
