Keiron Le Grice: Archetypal Cosmology: A New Mythic Perspective
As the established religious traditions and worldviews pass away or lose their persuasive power, what, if anything, might serve as a shared framework of meaning to illuminate our individual and collective experience? What, many of us wonder, might be the nature of a mythology to come? In this talk, we will consider the role of an archetypal astrology as a cosmological perspective that could help us better understand our relationship to the universal powers and principles shaping our experience and provide mythic orientation for our lives.
