“You enter the forest at the darkest point, where there is no path. Where there is a way or path, it is someone else's path. You are not on your own path. If you follow someone else's way, you are not going to realize your potential.” ~Joseph Campbell, The Hero’s Journey
Annika Andersson will dialogue about questions such as creativity, the creative process, what is creativity, and how does one become creative? Speaking from her own experience, and her own process, Annika will discuss the trials and tribulations she has encountered in searching for the creative fire within. As Joseph Campbell has said, “Enter the forest at the darkest point, where there is no path,” in order to create your own path, your own story, your own life. One must be brave, honest, and open. The journey is not for the faint at heart. Drawing largely from the works of Joseph Campbell, C.G Jung, Marie Louis Von Franz, and other more modern day thinkers, Annika will explore the search for creativity and personal truth through the languages of myth, philosophy, depth psychology, religious studies and alchemy.
