A Mythological RoundTable ® Group (MRT) is a gathering of people drawn
together by a deep and abiding interest in all things mythological. Much like the Round Table of yore, it is a place where
individual and community come together - a place to play, plan, create, partake in ritual, and share tales of our own quests
with companions well met. But JCF Mythological RoundTable ® Groups do more than just enrich the individual; they also
offer the opportunity to introduce the work of Joseph Campbell to the wider community, carrying his vision off the page and
out into the real world.
