Event Details

This talk will explore how, consciously or not, we are all myth-makers.  Myths provide a narrative about the origins of the world and of the ongoing processes of being that take place all the time within the individual psyche during the course of a human life.  Amanda will discuss how, while occupying a position of lesser importance than it did in the past, myth continues to maintain a presence in modern life as a living thread, winding through our cultural structures, and how it can have a transformative function for the individual, leading the way to a deeper awareness of and engagement with one’s inner world.

6.45pm for 7.00pm start, ending at 8.30pm.

Tickets: £8 ( £6 concessions)
