Description

Simply put, Joseph Campbell (1904-1987) changed the conversation we were all having about religion, mythology, and art. With his groundbreaking 1949 book The Hero With a Thousand Faces and everything that was to follow, Campbell took the study of mythology down from its dusty shelf and thrust it into the middle of our popular consciousness. By revisiting these ancient tales Campbell showed us that their relevance is more vibrant than ever. And with his clarion call to “follow your bliss” Campbell helps us tap into even deeper questions about the intersections between our essential nature and the nature of the cosmos itself. Join us for this overview of his life’s work and its gracing relevance.
