The BluePrint of Creativity

The Hero's Journey, the Scientific Method, creative models like Steiner's Planetary Model of Creativity; and esoteric models of light, e.g. the Chakras, the Sephirotic tree, sacraments, all share recognizable patterns. The patterns parallel the path of impulses as they are catalogued as events and travel through the nervous system, to be perceived as "thought," and translated into behavior, or action.          

These standard models are associated with creating story, understanding and even wisdom. They have different names and different applications in differing fields of study.

Cecilia Beltran has put together a multi-media program which unveils how they may represent one uniquely human process hidden behind the limitation of human speech and sound.

Cecilia is one of the NY Mythology groups co-organizers. She is the author of the book The Darkness Before Light, and has presented to the group in the past. Cecilia was an advertising creative for McCann-Erickson, JWT and Publicis for over a decade. She was a pharmaceutical writer and worked with Pfizer, Roche and Nestle. Her work largely focused on fetal brain development and pediatric health. Also an accomplished photographer and artist, she is fascinated by the concept of mythology, creativity, and artistic expression as a function of human neurology.

Join us for this month's lively get together in a special venue with a very special presentation, and discussion. Meet new myth lovers, and revisit with old friends at our monthly meeting.

    I would love to hear an indepth lecture on the heroes journey. The process is so relevent to all of us in our lives. I enjoyed seeing the process in relation to the tree of life but I would have preferred that the entire lecture focus on the heroes journey.

      The last meet-up's topic was all about the hero's journey applied to the speaker's personal life. It was an engaging presentation. The Tree Life, particularly its source and the symbolisms surrounding that is often discussed in depth psychology, jung, campbell and hillman alluded to the tree of life as part of the recurring narratives in the collective psyche. Hillman in particular focused on the tree of life in his discussions surrounding the core self, which campbell calls the "hero" in his work. The point of the talk was to show that the hero's journey is also the divine journey which also life's journey which is also our creative journey.

      My point is there are many angles to pursue in the discussion of the hero's journey. it's BIG topic that obviously has a very huge scope, that is why we have roundtable, to continue to discuss the hero's journey in depth in varying points of observations.
