Myth, Psyche, and Us
Site: Common Room, St. John Episcopal Church, 315 Main Street, Southwest Harbor.
Who or what are the gods and goddesses? Why do their stories, after 3,000 years, continue to connect us with wisdom and meaning? Using the insights of psychiatrists Carl Jung and Jean Shinoda Bolen we will explore mythology and what the gods and goddesses have to do with our lives in the 21st century. No previous knowledge of mythology or psychology is necessary.
