Bernie Taylor is an independent naturalist, thought leader and author whose research explores the mythological connections and biological knowledge among prehistoric, indigenous and ancient peoples. His latest book, Before Orion, is premised on Joseph Campbell’s hero's journey monomyth which is at the core of stories worldwide among indigenous peoples, the ancients, and our modern society. Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. Before Orion will change the idea of who you think you are.
