Facilitator Paul Boivin will take us on a journey into Joseph Campbell’s personal perspectives from the new book Joseph Campbell Correspondence 1927-1987. This collection of letters “features illuminating conversations between Joseph Campbell and a fascinating case of correspondents from friends and cowriters to renegade scholars and fellow visionaries.” Readings from the book of letters and Campbell’s biography, A Fire in the Mind: The Life of Joseph Campbell, will offer a glimpse into Campbell’s own hero’s journey, the impact his work has on popular culture and the common threads Campbell shared with Jungian thought.

Join in discussions inspired by the lifework of mythologist and comparative religion expert Joseph Campbell. Joseph Campbell® Foundation Mythological Roundtable® (MRT) network groups are gatherings of people interested in all things mythological. They are designed to enrich us as individuals and offer the opportunity to introduce Joseph Campbell’s work to the wider community. Hosted in partnership with the C. G. Jung Society of Sarasota, MRT gatherings will bring together presenters and the community to expand our conscious understanding of the interplay between mythology and Jungian psychology, as well as the evolution of the human psyche and society as a whole. Paul Boivin—a lifelong Joseph Campbell enthusiast and a Sarasota-based business entrepreneur who helped to establish the Sarasota MRT in 2015—will facilitate the meetings.
