LECTURE DESCRIPTION:


"Myths are public dreams; dreams are private myths. By finding your
own dream and following it through, it will lead you to the myth-world
in which you live. But just as in dream, the subject and object, though
they seem to be separate, are really the same."
-- Joseph Campbell

In dreams, the consciousness we witness daily meets that of our inner
being. Dreams can lead us to awareness of the divinity within us.
Joseph Campbell explores the significance of dreams, their relationship
to myths, how certain Western beliefs have translated myths into
"waking consciousness" symbols, why Eastern teachers have proven so
attractive to Westerners, and how yoga can awaken us to the visions and
awareness awaiting us in deep sleep.
