Hello, I am Mark Grandstaff, an emeritus professor of History and Culture at Brigham Young University, a MBTI Master Practitioner, and a lover of myth and understanding its role in creating and shaping society. I have written much on the role of the wounded warrior archetype in today's society and have given a number of lectures on masculinity and middle-age.
My spouse (Amy) and I currently live in Ansbach, Germany where I am volunteering to aid American military service personnel and their families reintegrate back into civilian society. It is surprising how much the role of mythology plays in "bringing home the boys (and girls) from the front."
I am very excited about this course and it so far has lived up to my expectations.
