If we know our mythology, we can be more helpful to people who have mythological dreams or visions. Stephen Larsen (1990) has some useful things to say about this, and shows how masks can help in working with such issues. There is a kind of awareness here of the depths which story-telling can reach. Larsen says:

To see mythically, then, is not just to fantasize richly or to dwell only on classic myths and fables. The mythically awake imagination would rather see through the ordinary-seeming surface of everyday life to discover the ‘secret cause’, the mythic, archetypal patterns beneath.
