Metaphors, and Dreams (2020)
Amazon Review: "While 'bothness' is not a word, it is a thought that came going through my mind as I read Mythos: A map to myths, metaphors, and dreams. Metaphors and myths go together, just as self-awareness and other-awareness go together. More than other points in time, we need to hold two opposing thoughts at the same time; it is like spinning plates.
When we do this, we begin to see the different sides of an issue, situation, or conditions. What the author, Melissa Wright, calls on readers to do is to embrace bothness. It is myths and metaphors; it is ourselves and others.
It is a language and visual imagination. With our current state, opening our minds
to more significant meanings and understandings is critical.
Mythos provides a path for openness and new actions for betterment."
-Jon Mertz, CEO, Santa Fe Innovates
(Available Now) Mythos, Melissa's first book, is a linguist's take on how to use the combination of metaphors, myth, and dreams as a way to propel our talk and our societal dynamics forward.
It highlights how dreams, myths, and metaphors serve as a guide to illustrate what is within each of us and how they can be used to bring groups together through communal consideration and understanding. It, of course, argues for collective myths, which are nothing more than amplified metaphors, to be reincorporated into our everyday rhetoric, serving to bind us together in a time of divisive language.
Her accessible technique, Imythiation™, is developed throughout, as she pulls from literary, mythological, and artistic minds to help illustrate the myths that are sleeping within us all, waiting to be reawakened.

Myths of Mind
Neil's first book is the beginning of a series of volumes titled Myths of Mind:
Volume 1: Out Lines dives into how we can strategically handle and navigate the waves of insecurity in ourselves, with all others, no matter what he calls: The Interpersonal Weather.
Out Lines is available now on Gumroad.com
Neil playfully but meaningfully exposes the inner mechanisms of our minds that gear us toward either connection or division, depending on our experiences and states of mind. He thoughtfully outlines what makes us, as individuals, primed for connection or disunion.
Relying on water metaphors, poetic prose, and his experience as a psychotherapist, Neil highlights the meaningful ways we can begin to examine our thought processes, and understand the processes of others, so that we can mend the incongruences between each other and move toward congruence not only with others but within ourselves.
His work insightfully and creatively provokes contemplation of the human condition and self-reflection on one’s own conditioning. During these turbulent times, Neil’s insights calm the waters we’re traversing and lead us to unity.
We know these books will be useful to any self developer, leader, artist, psychotherapist, professional, or individual interested in evolution, especially the evolutions of our cognitions, belief systems, and perceptions.
We look forward to releasing more very soon,
