“Mapping Future Myths for the Transition” – Workshop & Video – Willi Paul. The First Study of Myth Symposium, Pacifica Graduate Institute, Santa Barbara, CA. 8/31 – 9/2 – 2012

Original Description – “Mapping Future Myths for the Transition.”

Classic mythology no longer plays a vibrant role in the current global Transition. We need to engineer new myths for the pending post-crash age that incorporate stories and values yet unforeseen. I will refine and present the mythic mandate process that I presented at the 2011 NW Permaculture Convergence for the Symposium.
