Every few years another film arrives telling the same story~ Star Wars, The Matrix, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games. Why are we continually fascinated with the hero’s journey? Mythologist Joseph Campbell offers that it resonates deeply with our human experience, especially in our search for meaning and purpose. In this three-part series, participants will look closely at rich variations of the story through fine art, mythology, literature, and film to explore a deeper understanding and appreciation of how the story and its archetypes illuminate our own lives.
