The Joseph Campbell® Foundation's (JCF) Mythological RoundTable® (MRT) groups are gatherings of people drawn together by a deep and abiding interest in all things mythological. Much like the Round Table of yore, it is a place where individual and community come together -- a place to play, plan, create, partake in ritual, and share tales of one's own quest with companions well met. But the Mythological RoundTable® groups do more than just enrich the individual; they also offer the opportunity to introduce Joseph Campbell's work to the wider community, carrying his vision off the page and out into the real world.
Join us at Mythology Cafe every 2nd Saturday at Luna's Cafe and nourish your quest through shared stories, discussions, and with guest speakers. Come with us on a Mythic Adventure and further explore the mythic dimension at cultural events, natural places and sacred spaces. Scroll down to see what's coming up.
Go to pages for more information about our group and resource links. Stay current with global and local news and events of a mythic nature on our Facebook page.
We are an officially chartered Mythological RoundTable® group, joining groups from around the world through JCF. Find out everything about the non-profit Joseph Campbell® Foundation at www.jcf.org. Everyone with an interest in mythology welcome. Come and be part of the creative process and share your passion for myth!
"Myth is the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos
pour into human cultural manifestation."–
