Course: Music and Transformation through the Hero's Journey
Starts Wednesday 11 July
Transformation from the Unconscious to Consciousness
The myths of the modern age
For many years Patricia Hamilton has had an interest in Mythology and how the stories they tell seem to be repeated over time. Patricia has studied the works of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell and was captured by the TV series "The Power of Myth", with Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers (1988). Campbell studied the Myths and the Archetypes and related them very clearly to the Movies of the modern age and how they hold up a mirror which reflects our humanity, and in turn can show us how to understand ourselves and others.
Course: Developing Your Own Spirituality, Unit II
Crises & dimensions, thinking & willing
Starts Thursday 2 August
& Wednesday 7 November
In Unit I we focused on some general principles underlying the development of a healthy spirituality. In Unit II we will focus more on particular concrete facets of spirituality. Walker Percy, the American essayist, wrote: “It is pilgrims we are, wayfarers on a journey, and not pigs, not angels.” (Walker Percy, Love in the Ruins: Adventures of a Bad Catholic at a Time Near the End of the World, Avon Books, 1978, 104.)
Pilgrims frequently come to crossroads, choices must be made – sometimes without much knowledge of what the consequences might be. Commitment to the journey is more about departing than arriving. It is more a matter of grace than conquest. This is a hard-won realization.
