"Archetypes in the Maya Creation Myth." by John Major Jenkins

Members $8 /Nonmembers $10

The Maya Creation Myth contains classic archetypal themes. A core dynamic is the relationship between the deities named Seven Macaw and One Hunahpu, who represent the Ego-Self axis discussed in Jungian psychology. This talk will discuss the universal or perennial themes in the Maya Creation Myth, and explore the archetypal identities of several of the central characters. The interface of these characters with Maya astronomy will also be discussed.
