Upcoming events (2)
***PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE BACK TO OUR REGULAR MEETING PLACE *** ***THE GLEN ALLEN LIBRARY IN HENRICO COUNTY*** We will continue with the same format as before: watching 30 minutes of the Power of Myth followed by discussion. There is so much to unpack in each session and each person brings so much to the table! We will now shift to episode two. In "The Message of the Myth" Bill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell compare creation myths from the Bible and elsewhere, and talk about how religions and mythologies need to change with time in order to maintain their relevance in our lives. Over the past year we have a wonderful core group of advanced members as well as many "newbies" who have participated in these wonderful discussions. This remains a group for all persons interested in learning about Campbell's teachings or deepening their knowledge. There is typically 12-16 persons per group (the meet-up stats fail to capture the actual numbers) which makes it lively yet cozy. Hoping to see you on Wednesday February 20th! And if you did not have a chance to eat prior to the meeting you are welcome to bring something to eat there. And if you are running late...no worries, please feel free to join us anytime during the meeting.
Details We will continue follow the same format as previous meetings. We will watch the 1st thirty minutes of the second episode of The Power of Myth starting at 6:30 followed by discussion starting at 7:15ish. This meeting will be held back at the Glen Allen Library (our regular meeting place). They have an awesome audio-visual system and we can bring food in-no problem. There is a Publix 1/4 of a mile away where you can pick up a quick and healthy bite to eat if you need to. And don't worry if you can't get there at 6:30. Come in when your schedule allows, no worries if it is after the film started, lots of people come in as they can...no worries! We get how hectic a day can get...looking forward to seeing you. For any new people considering joining us, please do come. There are a lot of people who just come and listen, no pressure to be part of the discussion. We typically have 10-20 people per meeting and the conversations are wonderful. And if you want some youtube links to the series check out the "PAGES" and "DISCUSSIONS" tabs above.
