Seminar: The Power of Myth

Over thousands of years, myths have helped human beings to understand aspects of life that the rational mind finds difficult to grasp (love, death, mystery…). Great philosophers like Plato have used myths to explain their key concepts. Still today, we find the archetypal patterns of myth in books like Lord of the Rings or films like Star Wars.

This seminar will introduce you to the archetypal structure of mythology and its important role in promoting our spiritual and psychological well-being.



1. Myths, Symbols and Rituals as means of access to the Sacred and as tools for understanding and facing the trials of life.

2. The Oedipus Myth: Can Free Will and predestination co-exist? What is the nature of the human being?

3. The Myth of Eros and Psyche: A key to understanding the mysteries of love and the soul.

4. The Travels of Odysseus: The trials, meaning and purpose of life, as described in Homer’s epic work, The Odyssey.

The session will begin at 10.45am and there will be a 1-hour lunch break, where we will provide an optional vegetarian home-cooked meal for £10. There are also various cafés close by. The seminar will end at 5pm.

New Acropolis UK is a registered educational charity and tickets for this seminar are priced at £60 (£45 concessions) with all proceeds going to support our activities, thank you!
