What we're about

These are troubled and tragic times with things unravelling and the possible extinction of life edging closer each year. We are seeing unprecedented dying away of plants, animals and landscapes and if the earth, as Dr Martin Shaw says, speaks in Myth then perhaps we might have reached the moment where listening is vital.

In his address for Ted Hughes memorial service, Seamus Heaney claimed that as DNA is the genetic code for the human body, so myth is the poetic code for the human spirit.

In our group we will explore our culture's obsession with heroes and wonder about what might be asked of a people who are willing to remember that there was a time when things were otherwise, when stories were alive and humans knew how to listen and converse in a more than human language.

We will find our way with the format and the content. My suggestion for starting is to watch some talks with Martin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEaTNUS6RZk and send me a message saying you want to join.

Let us see where this takes us!
