Seminar : Sun 22 of January - 11 AM
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. Modern Mythology: Archetypal themes and their interpretations in fairy tales, literature and film.
