"We think we are very wonderful people, highly respectable and moral, and so on, but in reality we are bloody pirates." - - C.G. Jung
We are deeply immersed in a Pirate Culture. Everyone (!) has a connection with pirates. However, many people are unaware of the great extent to which the values of the pirates influence our lives.
Psychologically, we know that thoughts and feelings in the Unconscious exert an unknown influence on the way we act. The underlying premise of Pirate Therapy is that by raising awareness of your relationship to the Pirate you will become a more whole person. By becoming more conscious of what is in the unconscious a person can learn to change from merely reacting to life in disturbing ways. The psychologist (like the ancient philosophers) has an answer to many of life's perplexing problems: "Know thyself." Increasing awareness of the self has a healing effect. In this book, Pirate: Quest for the Mystic Bootye, you will see a reflection of the Self that raises consciousness of both the pathological symptoms of the Pirate and the healing potential of encountering the Pirate archetype.
Here you will learn about the inner dynamics of piracy and how this influences your everyday life. The path is hazardous, but the rewards are great. Find a deeper understanding of your Self, and discover the way to obtain a very special treasure: The Mystic Bootye.
"A Pirate wants one thing more than anything in life: the Treasure!"
Pirate Psychology is a way to look at Life. It provides a way to identify personal values, resolve the past, focus on goals, and pursue what is important. The true value of Pirate Psychology is to know what the Treasure means for you and how to obtain it. This endeavor is at the heart of the Way of the Pirate and is called--the Quest for the Mystic Bootye.
The desire for the Mystic Bootye inspires the seeker to go on a Quest to obtain it. This gives meaning to Life (a worthwhile goal). Each individual must decide to what extent they will commit their life to seeking to obtain this treasure which represents personal fulfillment. For those on the Quest, and those who desire to know more -- go on to . . . Pirate Lesson #1: Pirate Lesson Number One: Thinking Out of the Box/Cave (Light)
