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 mythic references to the importance of Agriculture in early Irish society?

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.
