The Mythic Life

Sep 06 - 08, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Sharon Blackie

The old, forgotten pre-Christian mythologies and philosophies of the West — from the magical stories of Celtic Ireland to the soul-centered mythtellings of Plato in ancient Greece — are rich, complex and beautiful. They offer up a world in which everything is not only alive, but has purpose and intentionality of its own. A world to which each incarnated soul chooses to come, for a reason: to fulfill its own unique calling, and to offer up a gift which can only be expressed through relationship with and participation in that animate world.
