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.

At the first meeting of the year, the group watched the first dialogue titled "The Hero's Adventure."  In that episode, Campbell talks about the presence of the hero archetype and the heroic journey as a part of each person's life. The next meeting is as follows:
