Celtic Otherworld Journeys

October 16, 1998 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

The ancient Irish, Welsh, and Scots storytellers left us a rich collection of myths dealing with the relations between the interpenetrating realms of nature and the supernatural. One category of their art deals with the journeys that adventurers, kings, and pilgrims make into the timeless Otherworld of the Land of Promise, what we would call the world of archetypal form. Reflecting on some of these can provide clues to the initiatory ordeals that modern individuals may encounter when they confront unconscious forces on the long path of individuation. We will see that our blessing and pathologies find echoes in the rewards and stumblings of our ancestors.
