The Joseph Campbell Foundation Mythological RoundTable® Group of OPUS at Pacifica Graduate Institute is host to bi-monthly gatherings that foster the “deep and abiding interest in all things mythological.” In the spirit of inclusivity, events are free and open to the public and feature a wide range of in-depth topics for presentation and discussion, seeking ever to understand how myth and ritual have been lived and defined in the past, and embracing the need to re-mythologize the mythic as it presents itself in variety now and toward the future.
A special attention is given to the history and contemporary practice, appreciation, and analysis of the arts and film, as well as to archetypal psychology. Potential upcoming topics include interactive explorations of virtual reality and its forming and forthcoming mythic implications, the concrete magic of mineral pigment making, and events including music and film screenings.
Located on the campuses of Pacifica Graduate Institute, which offers unique Masters and Doctoral programs in the tradition of Depth Psychology and Mythological Studies, OPUS Archives and Research Center is home to the collections of many innovative and influential artists and scholars in the field, including Joseph Campbell, James Hillman, and Maria Gimbutas. Please come and enjoy this special environment for engaging the mythic!
