What we're about
Welcome Joseph Campbell devotees and newcomers alike! Come join us for a great discussion focusing on Campbell's teaching on mythology and comparative religion as it relates to our current life and culture. This group is for those interested in exploring their spirituality with like-minded individuals in a comfortable and open setting. A basic understanding of Joseph Campbell's teachings is recommended but not necessary. We will start the group by presenting one hour episodes from the PBS special "The Power of Myth" as an introduction to Campbell's philosophy followed by discussion as our starting point. Later topics for each meeting will vary but will use Campbell's teachings as a focus on how we can recognize spiritual messages and opportunities in our daily lives and routines.
This is our intention that this meet-up group hopes to serve for you:
To bring the teachings of Joseph Campbell to the individual, to our community and to a greater understanding of our relationship to nature and our planet.
· For the individual: to help support their own spiritual development and a deeper understanding of their own Faith as well as the Faith's of others.
· For the community: to help us understand what is common to us all and to support our decision-making to grow together peacefully versus create separation. By increasing our awareness of the higher principles of the Campbell teachings we become better and healthier as a community.
· For our planet: to help us relate to nature and our global community though the eyes of reverence and as stewards.
