PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE: MYTHOLOGY CAFE WILL BE ON 3RD SATURDAY IN JANUARY 2014.
Join us for a screening of "The First Storytellers," Episode 3 of the timeless video series The Power of Myth. "Bill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell discuss the importance of accepting death as rebirth as in the myth of The Buffalo's wife and the story of Christ, rites of passage in primitive societies, the role of mystical Shamans and the decline of ritual in today’s society.
Campbell explains how ancient myths were designed to “put the mind in accord with the body, and the way of life in accord with the way nature dictates.” As one example, Campbell explains how myths bring humans to understand and accept birth, growth and death." - Moyers & Company
Following the 1-hour screening, we'll break into small groups for a friendly discussion of Campbell's perspective of mythology and how we can use our understanding of it to live authentic and fulfilled lives. Newcomers are always welcome!
