Dr. Colette Kavanagh
The Irish Mythic Imagination
Free & Open to the Public
Joseph Campbell was intensely proud of his Irish cultural heritage. Many of Ireland’s deeply rooted traditions, mythic motifs, symbols, and rituals have survived across centuries to compose its unique imaginal inheritance. Join Dr. Colette Kavanagh to explore the Irish mythic imagination and learn how, at a time when we are increasingly disconnected from ancestral thought, soul, nature, and the richness of community life, the Irish, despite modernity, have managed to keep their ancient traditions alive.
Dr. Colette Kavanagh was born and reared in Ireland. She worked for several years with Irish television and traveled the world making film documentary programs about people and their cultures. In 2003, she completed her doctorate in Mythological Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She now works in Europe as a Cultural Psychologist and lectures internationally.
