Joseph Campbell RoundTable




Upcoming Roundtables



The Center for Symbolic Studies was originally inspired by the work of Joseph Campbell, and has had a mythological RoundTable since the early 1990’s. Early years featured reviewing all the films and videos of Campbell lecturing, with commentary by Stephen and Robin Larsen, his authorized biographers.


In 2006, a regular monthly program on mythological subjects was instituted, with Stephen and Robin lecturing and dialoguing with guest presenters, on subjects dear to Campbell:  Courtly Love, the spiritual quest in Hinduism, Buddhism, Shamanism, in the works of contemporary artists, and of course, everywhere in he Hero Journey.

Past programs have featured guest lecturers Rich Schwab on Harry Potter and the Hero Journey, Dr. Nicholas Brink on the Beowulf legend and “Loki’s Children,” Ramona Fradon on “The Gnostic Faustus,” and Jennifer Barker on the myth of Persephone and her powerful presence in the modern world.
