Description

This group is for those interested in world mythology, folklore and faerie tales and will include storytelling as well as discussions biblical texts will also be looked at; this is not from a religious perspective so if that is problematic this room will probably not serve you and is not meant to offend This room will look at the themes, cultures, rituals, magic and lessons that the texts and stories can provide.

We will also look to compare stories with similar themes and ideas weaving some patterns together.

Stories and narrative are some of the oldest forms of spiritual and human expression, through this we can in a very real way connect with our ancestors and their beliefs, culture and gain insights into the past along with religion, politics and all things that stories can express.

“Myth basically serves four functions. The first is the mystical function,... realizing what a wonder the universe is, and what a wonder you are, and experiencing awe before this mystery....The second is a cosmological dimension, the dimension with which science is concerned – showing you what shape the universe is, but showing it in such a way that the mystery again comes through.... The third function is the sociological one – supporting and validating a certain social order.... It is the sociological function of myth that has taken over in our world – and it is out of date.... But there is a fourth function of myth, and this is the one that I think everyone must try today to relate to – and that is the pedagogical function, of how to live a human lifetime under any circumstances.”
― Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
