The Joseph Campbell Foundation Mythological RoundTable of Ojai invites you to The Ojai Foundation on May 18th, @ 6:15 PM, for a talk on The Mythology of Yoga with Alanna Kaivalya. Join us as Alanna unpacks Hindu myths and mystical philosophies associated with Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Explorations into mantras and narratives will center on their import into yogic practice and their insights into the timeless trials of human life.
