The Personal Myth in Turbulent Times

The Personal Myth in Turbulent Times



Friday May 8, 7:30pm
Canadian Memorial Church
1806 W. 15th Ave. (corner of 15th & Burrard St.)
What is your myth, the myth in which you do live?
In 1913 Jung asked himself this question, and realized that he could not answer.
Can we?
We first have to understand what is meant by myth, and then what the question itself means. Why we have to even ask this is yet another question.

What is the cultural context in which we raise these questions?

How do our personal journeys intersect with the climate of our time?

This presentation will address these issues, offer putative approaches, and challenge participants to a more thoughtful engagement with the narratives of their lives.

Saturday May 9, 10am–3:30pm
Museum of Vancouver
1100 Chestnut St.
$125 Mid-morning snack provided. Please bring your lunch.

Our seminar will elaborate on the issues raised in Friday night’s presentation, and provide questions that will provoke participants to personalize these issues. Please bring a pen and paper to write and reflect.
