About the Lecture from Dennis Slattery, PhD: “Living a Cohearant Life.”
The misspelling is intentional, as the lecture will show. We will explore what we have been called to, the work we have engaged both personally and professionally, and the ways in which our personal myth unfolds through the vocational work we have responded to. It will include insights from renowned mythologist, Joseph Campbell, as well as an exploration of a scene from Genesis.
Writing Meditations: Uncovering Our Personal Myth
We will then use a series of what I call Writing Meditations from my book, Riting Myth, Mythic Writing: Plotting Our Personal Story to further amplify some elements of the myth we are living and that is living us. Included here will be a series of observations that I have come to regarding the nature and structure of personal mythology. Participants will be encouraged to write cursively rather than on their computers for reasons I will suggest as we begin these meditative writings. We will share some of our own insights by listening to those who feel called to share their writing meditation.
I will include some insightful observations from C. G. Jung as well to amplify further the power of myth and its cohering properties.
