The Joseph Campbell Foundation Mythological RoundTable® Group of OPUS at Pacifica Graduate Institute presents:
Dr. Catherine Svehla
"Once Upon A Time is Now"
In traditional cultures, people come together to listen to the old stories and consider their wisdom and meaning for the present moment. This practice is one of our oldest medicines and teaching forms, one that we still need and can use today to gain insight into cultural and personal concerns. Join Catherine Svehla, Ph.D. for the telling and exploration of the story that we need right now. We’ll use a simple divination method to guide us to the story that needs to be told to the group that gathers.
Dr. Catherine Svehla is an independent scholar, educator, and artist with a PhD in Mythological Studies and Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She creates story-based classes and programs geared toward a popular adult audience that demonstrate the relevance of mythology to contemporary life. Dr. Svehla is the founder of Mythic Mojo and the host of Myth in the Mojave, a bi-weekly podcast with an international audience. She founded and led the High Desert Mythological Roundtable from 2009-2015. In 2010, Dr. Svehla received a New Mythos grant from OPUS Archives for “Blisters On the Way to Bliss: Toward a New Understanding of Heroism,” a project in the Joseph Campbell archives.
