JCF Mythological RoundTable® Group at OPUS

The JCF Mythological RoundTable® Group at OPUS meets four times a year. This group fosters dialogue that deepens our understanding of Campbell's ideas through intellectual discussion and community. Each gathering we focus on a specific topic, chapter or essay of Campbell's. Come and participate in in our lively conversation on Joseph Campbell's work.


"Myth comes from the same zone as dream... from the great biological ground, whatever it may be. They are energies and they are matters of consciousness."                                                        -- Joseph Campbell


For 2014 the Joseph Campbell Mythological RoundTable© Group at OPUS Archives will be screening the "Power of Myth" series with Joseph Campbell and Bill Moyers.  Each meeting will start with an episode and then there will be a facilitated discussion with Safron Rossi, Ph.D. who is the Curator of Collections at OPUS, home of the Joseph Campbell library and manuscript collection.  The next meeting is as follows:

RT 3 - Thursday, October 23, 2014

The Event is FREE

"Sacrifice and Bliss"

The October episode from the Power of Myth series with Campbell and Moyers focuses on the theme of sacrifice in myth, as well as the importance of finding our own sacred places as the world and the collective pace hasten. It’s been 27 years since this dialogue was filmed, and, given how life has become even more technologically oriented and moves at a speed not known back in the 1980s, this topic feels even more important to reflect on now.
