A Special Weekend with James Hollis, PhD

Friday Evening lecture:

Mythologems: The Darkly Moving Currents of the Soul

A mythologem is a mythic motif or idea. In what ways are our lives mythological? What is our myth, then, as a culture and as individuals? How do we step into the gap between the received myth—the internalized ideas and motifs—and the consciously constructed myth? How do unconscious mythologems play out in personal and public life?

Saturday workshop:

The Mythic Journey

This workshop will explore the lineaments of our personal myth as well as the archetypal images that rise to mark our collective journey. To what images is our soul in service? Are they consonant with the soul’s agenda? (Please bring pen and notebook in which to write personal reflections.)
