The Joseph Campbell Foundation website.
I love Jung's most inspired/inspiring interpreters: Edward Edinger, Mircea Eliade, James Hillman, Robert A. Johnson, Robert Moore, Henri J. M. Nouwen, Murray Stein, Ann & Barry Ulanov, and others.
Myths are are just stories, and yet they have an uncanny power to shape how we experience ourselves in the world. Having a narrative of some kind seems a central part of how the human mind works. I believe we are always living out SOME kind of story.
Watching Joseph Campbell's interviews with Bill Moyers was my impetus for seeking out a like-minded group. The warmth, authenticity and generosity of Joseph Campbell in these interviews made me say, "I want to be that kind of man."
Savor this group! It's a mixing pot where mythology, psychology, religious doctrine and hard science all get their freak on.
