Thurs 6 Oct 2016-HARVEST of the Seasons – Joseph Campbell & the Power of Myth

1-jc-pom-4-thumb-2As our ancestors turned from hunting to planting,  did their stories about life’s mysteries change too?   Joseph Campbell suggests that the  seed,  instead of the animal, became the symbol of life, death and resurrection. The plant died, was buried, and its seed born again.
Are there stories of the transition to Agriculture in Irish mythic tales?

                        Illustrated Talk,  film clips,discussion-

delphi-thumbBill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell discuss special places…Delphi, Machu Picchu, Stonehenge, Jerusalem…. But some early societies saw the whole earth as a sacred place ….”It was a geography not of city and nation-states, but of sacred places, the realm of the mythic imagination.

lcrew1-thumbJoseph Campbell  studied the relationship of myth to landscape, but he often reminded his students, “You don’t have to go on a pilgrimage to find your own sacred place, tnourish  your creative imagination.

                        Walking in an ancient land...a portal to the mythic mind?

uisneach-thumbIreland too has a mythic geographyat Newgrange, Tara, Loughcrew, Carrowkeel, Uisneach, Croagh Patrick, and elsewhere…ritual landscapes,  created more than 5000 years ago, formed the foundation of subsequent cultural landscapes.

Landscapes of memory,  an invisible web….
The culture that created Irish myths is strongly rooted in the landscape … connected to stories,  marked by rivers, plains and high places .

MAR-2016-POM3-V1-FB-web-PosterCan myths bring humans to understand and accept birth, growth and death? Were ancient myths were designed to “put the mind in accord with the body, and the way of life in accord with the way nature dictates.”?  In the third episode of  The Power of Myth, Bill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell discuss primal mythologies, rites of passage in early societies, the role of mystical shamans and artists, and the decline of ritual in today’s society. Joseph Campbell was fascinated by the enigmatic art created by our ancestors of the archaic world of the Palaeolithic era, deep in caves below the earth.

Illustrated TALK with film clips and discussion-

Post 17 March 2016

The birth of IMAGINATION looking back and LOOKING FORWARDjoin us in a time week when we are invoking  and evoking Ireland , also celebrating the legacy of Joseph Campbell on his birthday.
From the caves of Lascaux, which have been called the ‘Sistine Chapel of the Palaeolithic‘….to the artists of today. Humans have been creating art for over 30,000 years. The 20th century artist, Picasso was influenced by the primal images found in the caves . Can hints from cave-painting also be found in the work of the Irish artist Louis le Brocquy….?  Are there stories of Irish SHAMANS?
