The Psychology and Mythology of Depth from Aesklepios to the Greeks and Romans

  • February 23, 2018
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

CEUs: 2

Instructor: Mary Ellen O’Hare-Lavin

Both Freud and Jung recognized the importance of mythology in the study of psychology. We are our stories and we often find our stories replicated in an ancient myth or fairytale – they are part of our psychic DNA. While learning about myths from ancient times, participants will be encouraged to discover their own myth in relationship to their own story beginning with “Once upon a time. . .”
