Live talk: May 18

The School of Mythopoetics will be hosting Martin on Wednesday this week where he will be speaking old world stories and ideas into the malaise of our times. Says Martin: “In the West we have often made the Underworld so comfortable, so subtle, and in some cases so chronic, we’ve become a two stage, not three stage culture. Without quite knowing it, the Underworld has become home.” This is a free event.
