Welcome to the World Memory Theatre. Enter this site and become an explorer of the inspiring mythic tales told around the world about our power, place and purpose on Earth.

Here we join fellow-adventurers who also seek to better understand and hold consciously in their hearts the nature of our common humanity.


We encourage and celebrate intercultural fellowship by introducing the visitor to a new encyclopedic realm, that of following and connecting story-patterns from one culture to another.

Traditional stories of indigenous peoples arise from all the continents into a matrix of universal patterns and themes found in all the world's mythologies and underlying all human activity.


Your voyage of discovery will be in a free-directional virtual environment, fully browsable through folk-art portals, accessing a meta-content database of highly interactive traditional story-telling.

You may choose to begin in any cultural setting and you will have choices to uncover and link cross-cultural story-patterns, from a vast mythopoetic repository of human art and spirituality.

And as you weave your way across the globe from one people to the next, you will access amazing worlds-within-worlds where art, music and stories speak to our hearts and minds.

We may see ourselves as world-related human beings as we follow the myriad threads of these stories, spun by ancient indigenous cultures on every continent.

And you will discover for yourself the larger weave that unites us all into a single human family.

People in every walk of life are feeling the call to be part of a transformative evolutionary force moving through all our institutions.

At the global level, popular access to the World Wide Web is increasing, and the satellite communications network continues to proliferate.

Thus we see for the first time a worldwide community attempting to constellate a more egalitarian approach to our collective presence and to human history.

This community is seeking and will respond to a new educational dimension; one that taps more readily into the culture of all the world's people, to bring forth perspectives that reveal our common experience.

This emerging planetary gestalt has already begun to remove the legitimacy from war and the very idea of international armed conflict, just as it rejects exploitive value systems based on dominance, privilege, and the contests of history.

Looking back on the excesses of the 20th Century more than any other, we feel an ever greater need to release the old conditioning that emphasized racial and ethnic separation and fragmentation, and replace it with a more participatory and inclusive paradigm.

The World Memory Theatre provides a unifying overview of the wealth of transcultural philosophic knowledge, and encourages us to value diversity while exploring stories on a global scale.

We believe that for all people, a restoration of mythic sensibility through a deeper connection to the universal patterns informing human imagination, will contribute to a more integral world in this new millennium.
