|Women and Mythology
Ushered into the mainstream by Joseph Campbell, mythic narratives have the power to enliven and enrich our day-to-day experiences and dreams. Come journey to the African crossroads, learn about Greek goddesses, gather around for a folktale, watch a film by Maya Deren, sit in Frida Kahlo’s garden, or be mesmerized by mystic poets. We will explore the literary, psychological, spiritual, and cultural significance of an array of female-centric mythological narratives, images, and historical persons. Each class focuses on storytelling as personal inspiration for writing and/or artwork. Bodywork, collage, music, meditation, and optional group presentation will be explored. A $3 materials fee is due to the instructor on the first day of class.
