PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE: MYTHOLOGY CAFE WILL BE ON 3RD SATURDAY IN MAY 2014.
Join us for a screening of "Sacrifice and Bliss," Episode 4 of the timeless video series The Power of Myth.
"In the fourth episode of The Power of Myth, Bill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell discuss the role of sacrifice in myth — including a mother’s sacrifice for her child — and the need for all of us to find our sacred places in the midst of today’s fast-paced world… the two discuss where heroism can be witnessed in modern society." - Moyers & Company
Discussion topics include: Chief Seattle, the sacred Earth, agricultural renewal, human sacrifice, sacrifice of the Mass, transcendence of death, “The Green Knight,” societal dictates vs. following bliss, “hidden hands” guiding life's work.
Following the 1-hour screening, we'll break into small groups for a friendly discussion of Campbell's perspective of mythology and how we can use our understanding of it to live authentic and fulfilled lives. Newcomers are always welcome!
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
As usual, meetings are free, but we would welcome small voluntary donations to be forwarded for the maintenance of the Joseph Campbell® Foundation's Mythological RoundTable® Program.
Please allow 90 minutes for this meeting.
