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.

MENDOCINO, CA - AUGUST 14-19
Join us on this path of discovery with a diverse faculty who will present ideas and elements of initiation from tribal traditions, spiritual practices and psychological perspectives. Through stories, poems and the compelling speech of the soul; through chanting and meditation; through the suddenness of ideas and the surprise of ritual; we will approach the borders of our knowing and seek to touch the edge of what our souls came to live and to learn. This event will benefit those involved in mentoring and community building, teaching and counseling, environmental activism and social justice.
"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."
