CNS5020 Archetypal Mythology

Course Description

This course explores the role, weight, and significance of life's mythic dimension from the standpoint of depth psychologists who have claimed that mythic presences, events, and situations are not dead or extinct, but alive and addressing us continually. Archetypes and myths address us every day in our dreams, relationships, conflicts, and mishaps. We explore this claim through discussions, dream work, film, and other media that disclose deep myth-making layers of the psyche. Understanding the archetypal layer of consciousness deepens awareness of our subjectivity, and restores to us the archaic roots of our evolutionary heritage.
