Thurs 22 Feb: Ancient Healing & Parmenides-7.15pm-Brendan O’BYRNE

Thurs 22 March 2018: SPEAKER: Dr. Brendan O’BYRNE Philosopher, TCD Plato Center

An Ancient Holistic Healing Tradition Parmenides and early Greek Culture 

Chariot of Apollo

Parmenides was one of the most important early Greek philosophers, who lived about 100 years before Plato. He was noted for his ideas about being and unity. What is not so well known is the fact that he was the founder of an holistic healing cult based around a practice called incubation. This talk will consider the evidence for this, and offer a speculative answer as to the question about the connection, if any, between his philosophy and his cultic activities.

Thurs 22 Feb: The SHAMAN’s JOURNEY- Anu VIKEVAINEN -7.15pm

Siberian and Sami Shamanism: Death and resurrection – the ecstatic journey of a Shaman

Thurs 22 Feb : SPEAKER: Anu VIKEVAINEN  of  FINN Roots   INFO  POSTER  

Shaman Journey


The shaman is a gifted individual who enters into a trance and climbs up to the world of the gods and the animals, to bring back knowledge that is useful to the tribe.
Shamanism depicts the archaic understanding of parallel worlds and an animistic view of all existence.

The act of a shaman is seen as a technique of ecstasy, but it is a phenomenon in an entire worldview, the remains of which can be seen in what we call religions today.

 

The Sami people, who inhabit northern parts of Finland and large areas of Norway and Sweden,  follow shamanistic beliefs and practices. There is a long tradition of shamanism in  North Asia, particularly in Siberia.

Thurs 26 Oct-Finnegan’s WAKE-Terence KILLEEN

Mind Your Hats Goan In!:
    An Introduction to Finnegans WAKE –
SPEAKER: Terence KILLEEN
Thurs 26 Oct 2017-7.30pm- United Arts Club- details below

POSTER 

Terence KILLEEN  leads a reading group on Finnegans Wake at the James Joyce Centre.


Terence KILLEEN is the author of  “Ulysses Unbound, and writes for the Irish Times.
He is a member and former chairman of the James Joyce Institute of Ireland.

riverrun, past Eve and Adam’s, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs….

In Finnegans Wake, his final work,  James Joyce created a new way of telling stories.  Intertwining comical dreamlike narratives depict the Earwicker family at their pub beside the Liffey at Chapelizod:  HCE, his wife Anna Livia Plurabelle, their two sons, and their daughter Isolde.

Joyce also  conceived of his book as a dream of the mythical hero, Finn MacCumhal, and watching the history of Ireland and the world – past and future – flow through his mind like flotsam on the river of life. This dream history is circular, like the seasons of the year or the human life – birth, marriage, death, and resurrection.

Central to Finnegans Wake is Dublin itself – along with the Liffey and Howth Head – just as in Ulysses. Seen from across Dublin bay, Howth looks like a person asleep or laid out for a wake. For  Joyce, the River Liffey, Anna Livia, is like the cycle of life. From its source in the Wicklow mountains, it trickles and grows. It flows past HCE’s pub, the Eden of the Phoenix Park, bringing life to the city (and water to the Guinness brewery!). She then passes out into the sea where she is absorbed, and is taken up into the atmosphere to fall again as rain in Wicklow….

An end is implied in a wake –lamenting or toasting the corpse is intended to escort the soul to the afterlife- but also a beginning, for after sleep, we wake.

Finnegans Wake begins and ends in mid sentence, leading us back to
…riverrun, past Eve and Adam’s


2017 is the:
– 10th  year of Mythic Links
– 6th  year of the Joseph CAMPBELL® Mythological Round Table®  Group  of Dublin at Mythic Links Ireland which has been awarded CHARTER status by the Joseph Campbell Foundation www.jcf.org
James JOYCE was a significant source of inspiration in Joseph Campbell’s lectures and writings. Campbell wrote the “The Skeleton Key to Finnegan’s Wake” in 1944. In the collection “Mythic Worlds, Modern Worlds”, Campbell examines Joyce’s trio of novels, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses and the labyrinthine Finnegans Wake.

Thurs 5 Oct-MASKS of Eternity-Joseph Campbell-Power of Myth

MASKS of ETERNITY  POSTER
Approaching the Divine: exploring traditions of East and West...
The Power of Myth  past & present
Thurs 5 Oct 2017-Film,  Intro & discussion

Moyers and Campbell focus on characters and themes found in culture and mythologies.
Campbell argues that these timeless archetypes continue to have a powerful influence on the choices we make and the ways we live.


In the final episode of The Power of Myth, Bill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell discuss commonalities in portrayals of the Divine in world cultures; and the symbolism of the circle in life,  in traditional cultural practices,  the arts, and insights of psychologist Carl Jung.
Joseph Campbell called images, symbols and mythologies of the Divine
the masks of eternity,” masks that both cover and reveal the face of an ultimate reality, beyond all portrayals in language and art….

       A myth is a mask too, a metaphor for what lies behind the visible world. 

In this beloved 1988 PBS series, mythologist and storyteller Joseph Campbell joins Bill Moyers to explore what enduring myths can tell us about our live, in each of six episodes –“The Hero’s Adventure,” “The Message of the Myth,” “The First Storytellers,” “Sacrifice and Bliss,” “Love and the Goddess,” and Masks of Eternity

 

Released shortly after Campbell’s death on October 30, 1987, The Power of Myth was one of the most popular TV series in the history of public television, and continues to inspire new audiences.

Thurs 30 Mar -The Origins of NEWGRANGE- Dr. Robert HENSEY


Hensey Book Cover 2
Thurs.30 Mar Hidden
in plain Sight a Secret History: The Origins of NEWGRANGE-Dr. Robert HENSEY, Archaeologist 

As we emerge from the darkness of winter, moving through the Equinox and into the growing light… 
Join in an ancient journey, the journey to Newgrange.

01-triple-spiralNewgrange, Brú na  Bóinne, in the Boyne Valley in Ireland, dates to before 3000 b.c. It is a world-famous monument, not only because of its vast scale and elaborate megalithic art, but also because of its renowned alignment to the sun on the winter solstice. Yet it’s origins remain mysterious.

 

01-lcrewRobert Hensey uncovers an untold history, an island-wide story of a society that left behind a rich and enigmatic legacy. There are many passage tombs across Ireland which are older than Newgrange,  from Carrowmore  and Carrowkeel in Sligo, to Loughcrew in Meath.  These demonstrate a long tradition of both extraordinary physical accomplishments, and tremendous acts of imagination.

R Hensey Could an interest in an otherworld realm of the ancestors have been a central motivator in passage tomb construction?  Did early small-scale monuments lead to the development of potent centres of ritual training at the edge of society? Was entering the darkened chambers of more sophisticated passage tombs imagined as a transforming experience?

01-ngrequinox
What brought about the creation of the temple-like monuments at the very heart of the religious and political sphere, more than 5000 years ago, in Neolithic Ireland?
Join in a journey that still intrigues us today -the Journey to Newgrange!

AUTHOR ofFirst Light: The Origins of Newgrange” ( Oxbrow Books 2015 ).
