'How then are Souls to be made? How then are these sparks which are God to have identity given them - so as ever to possess a bliss peculiar to each one's individual existence? How, but by the medium of a world like this?'  ~  John Keats, letter 14th February 1819
 
 
 

COURSES ON THE MYTHIC IMAGINATION
AND NEOPLATONIC PHILOSOPHY
 in Dorset, England


The Mythic Imagination weekends draw attention to a neglected, almost secret, tradition which asserts that soul and its chief faculty, imagination, are of the essence.

From Plato and Plotinus, through the Renaissance magi, to the Romantic poets and modern depth psychologists - notably C G Jung - our tradition grounds reality itself in the images we call gods and daimons, and in the unauthored narratives we call myths.

Our speakers and facilitators try to show how this reality - this Soul of the World, this Primary Imagination - informs all our perceptions and underpins our arts, our dreams, our very lives.

The weekends are high-powered but at the same time informal and fun. They comprise talks, discussions, films and field trips in the exceptionally beautiful landscape of
undiscovered West Dorset.
