Books and Resources on the Use of Stories for Spiritual or Therapeutic Purposes

Do you know any other good book or resource about the use of stories for spiritual or emotional growth (for adults)?

I can only think of

- Clarissa Pinkola Est├ęs: Woman Who Run With the Wolves. Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype

which I can recommend as an interesting read in relation to this SIG although it focuses on women. It's been a while since I read it, so I don't remember it in much detail, but I think she doesn't only interpret several fairy tales and explains their healing properties, but also talks a bit about storytelling as an art and the responsibilities of the storyteller.

Can anyone else recommend a book to enhance our understanding?

It might be interesting to see how other spiritual paths (maybe Druidry???) use stories to guide people on their spiritual journey or how stories are used in psychotherapy to process emotional issues.
