New Mythos II Grant Awards
“James Hillman had a powerful ability to look at so many aspects of the human experience in startling and uniquely revealing ways. It was wonderful to see these scholars capture his essence so poignantly and undertake Hillmanian explorations into such new realms.”
–Robert D. Wagner, Jr. Ph.D. Chair, Selection committee
OPUS Archives and Research Center is delighted to announce the recipients of the 2013 New Mythos II Research Grant: James Hillman and Archetypal Psychology.
From the 39 initial submissions, the final selection committee, comprised of Dr. Robert Hinshaw, Margot McLean-Hillman, Dr. Ginette Paris, Dr. Michael Sipiora and Dr. Mary Watkins, selected three finalists who demonstrated exceptional and keenly relevant responses to the guiding question: How can James Hillman’s archetypal perspective help us shed new light on the pressing challenges and inspiring possibilities of our time?
The esteemed committee spent significant time carefully reviewing each grant application and reported exceptional quality and creativity amidst the proposals and the process of choosing finalists was challenging. OPUS wholeheartedly congratulates these grant winners whose projects seek to be integral in the visioning of a New Mythos for our collective experiences:

The Cooking vessel of the soul takes in everything, everything can become soul; and by taking into its imagination any and all evens, psychic space grows.
