WHEN: January 29, 2022 – 4pm Eastern | 3pm Central | 2pm Mountain | 1pm Pacific via Zoom

Course Description:

Many storytellers forget the power of myths as too archaic or as being not relevant to contemporary readers. They are not only missing a gold mine of compelling story ideas but forget that myths still resonate in so many ways today, just as they resonated with our ancestors.

Join me if you want to know more about:

  • The enduring function of myth in our lives.
  • What the first storytellers can teach us.
  • The 5 most resonate faces of the hero as a character.
  • Moving beyond Greco Roman myths to a wealth of other sources.
  • 6 of the most powerful mythic themes and how to use them.
