DESCRIPTION

This presentation considers the relevance of mythology in the context of our lives. Through the lens of the myth of Demeter and Persephone it focuses on the experience of loss, grief and return. Drawing on the writings of Jung, Hillman, Neumann, Edinger, Winnicott and others, it explores the essential role that a symbolic attitude plays in how we may respond creatively to the vicissitudes of our lives. Suffering is an indispensable part of our growth; loss and grief can be the catalyst which propels us towards connection to the Self and individuation.
