Mosaic’s Living Myth project seeks to bring the enlightening, transforming and healing power of mythic imagination to a world facing global problems that include both radical changes in nature and massive disruptions of culture. Given the scope and complexity of the problems, there can be no single idea, specific political movement or patented belief system that can save us. Rather, there is a growing need for diverse ideas, inspiring narratives and life-saving practices.
At the heart of Living Myth is the idea that each person has come to life with gifts to give and something meaningful to contribute to a world in crisis. By living out the story set within our souls, we discover creative ways of serving both the healing of nature and the re-imagination of culture. Creation wishes to continue, yet can only work through the souls of those alive at a given time.

Increasing tensions throughout the world pit the effects of modern culture against the instinctive practice of becoming a genuine individual. Yet, the heart of the human drama concerns whether we are becoming a greater vessel for the flow of life. Either we are following spirit and growing more soul or we can find ourselves shrinking from life.
When in touch with the soul’s mythic thread we can find the arts and practices, the aims and meanings that allow our souls to grow deeper, our imagination to expand and our spirits to awaken. This evening will seek the healing energies of both spirit and soul through the territories of story, poetry and song.
"At critical moments in the life of individuals and of societies, it is not necessarily the facts that are needed as much as a profound narrative that makes sense of life’s conflicts and misunderstandings. When all seems to be falling apart and becoming less rational and more chaotic, it is usually a different story that is needed to make things whole again. Mythic imagination can break the spell of time and open us to a level of life that remains timeless."
