 The Ancients and a Brand New Day

"We serve God by wrestling with our own problems which may in fact be God's problems."   C.G. Jung

The Olympian pantheon resembles actors within our own psyches.  How do we recognize what characters or stories may be pulling the strings in our own personal drama?  Do any of these stories speak symbolically to the conflicts and struggles within the challenging times in which we find ourselves today?

We will explore the stories of the ancients and experience them with music, poetry, and art through the lens of our own generation.  And, we will give a supportive nod to the future generations who have inherited the task of bringing forth transformational consciousness to a planet in stress.


Week 1:  Listening to the Oracle!  Looking for meaning with Athena as guide.

Week 2:  Up is down, down is up!  Adventures and dangers of Hermes the trickster god.

Week 3:  Betrayal!  Responses from Medea and Ariadne.  Opening to Dionysus.

Week 4:  Separation and loss!  Mysteries of Demeter, Persephone, and Orpheus.

Week 5:  Hestia brings us home.  Reflections and imaginings
