Workshop: The Truth of Myth

Although the word myth is often used to mean “falsehood,” themes from the myths of many cultures can have a profound relevance to our modern lives. In this workshop, we’ll explore how some of the patterns, allies, monsters, and pathways of universal myths can guide us through complex personal and even cultural dilemmas. You’ll construct a myth for a particular challenge in your own life and have an opportunity to share it orally with another person, in the way of the ancient bards.
