This workshop explores the dovetailing and contrasting ideas of C. G. Jung, James Hillman and Joseph Campbell on the relation between myth and psyche. It aims to revive our sense of the value of myth in creating meaning and restoring soul in our lives, as well as open up deeper understandings of events taking place in the world today. Through presentation, dialogue and writing exercises, we will work towards the development of a mythic sensibility, which allows us to see the pervasive presence of the archetypal patterns in and around us.
