I searched for 'Mythology' on the Meetup site and unfortunately found out that the group was inactive. So, I stepped up to organize it, and now there is one :-)
I've been interested in mythology as a spiritual/creative resource for modern times (and all times) for many years. Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thousand Faces has been a milestone book in my life.
"Truth is one; the sages speak of it by many names." -- the Vedas
I'm a singer-songwriter ( http://www.PhilRo... ), on a very rewarding journey of following my bliss. Mythology, culture, dreams, and the ideas of Carl Jung nourish and sustain me, not only as an artist but foremost as a person.
Everyone came from a very different background/perspective on mythology- as a result, everyone contributed something unique to the discussion. I learned a lot; which is what I was hoping for- I love this group!
