Dancing at the Edge of Death: The Origins of the Labyrinth in the Paleolithic
Watch Beyond 50's video book trailer on "Dancing at the Edge of Death: The Origins of the Labyrinth in the Paleolithic" that was written by Jodi Lorimer. Find out how the first modern humans in Paleolithic Europe painted the labyrinth journey to the Otherworld on the walls of deep caves over 32,000 years ago. Ancient shamans mapped the route of the labyrinth revealing the complex minds and spirit of a sophisticated people. To understand the significance of this mythological symbol requires that we dig into the very core of human experience and tread the paradoxical paths of belief and biology, history and myth, and discover where they cross over into transcendence, at the Center where the Minotaur (half-man, half-bull) resides.
