Our rich cultural heritage of myth, story, and ritual scatters breadcrumbs that guide us through the dark forests of life. Their archetypal patterns hide clues for finding meaning in an increasingly dangerous world and provide metaphors for inspiring art, poetry, conflict resolution, mental well-being, and personal growth. Mythic Journeys is a conference and performance festival inspired by the legacy of Joseph Campbell that will explore how myth lives and inspires us today through psychology, literature, scholarship, fantasy, performance, and more. http://www.mythicjourneys.org
