Description: 2020 Joseph Campbell(R) Foundation Mythological Roundtable(R) Series How can we learn to nourish the seeds of myth and metaphor in our modern culture and access their symbolism and archetypes to enrich our everyday life? Facilitator Paul Boivin and Galin McGowan, a Jungian Analyst and current president of board of the C. G. Jung Society of Sarasota, will take us on a journey into Joseph Campbell’s concepts and provide a practical roadmap for creating a practice that addresses five areas: thinking, feeling, moving, sharing and creating.
