The Power of Myth

Introduction into the archetypal structure of mythology and its important role in promoting our spiritual and psychological well-being.


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 and fables 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 4-week course (4 evenings over a month) will introduce you to the archetypal structure of mythology and its important role in promoting our spiritual and psychological well-being.

Topics:
- Myths, Symbols and Rituals as means of access to the Sacred and as tools for understanding and facing the trials of life.
- The Myth of Cupid and Psyche: A key to understanding the mysteries of love and the soul.
- The Oedipus Myth: Can free will and predestination co-exist? What is the nature of the human being?
- Fairly Tales and Modern Mythology: Archetypal themes and their interpretation in fairy tales, literature and film.

Fee for 4-week course £40 (£35 concessions). Refreshments included.
