Descent and Rebirth

black madona

Eleni Rivers and Dr Robert Hoskin will explore dimensions of the Christmas story from the perspective of MythMapping- an approach introduced at OASES graduate School to link a story or myth with the participant's personal, social and political experience.  Their sharing will contest commercialized version of Christmas, focusing on Santa, snow and shopping sprees.  Instead, they will explore archetypes of descent and rebirth.  This season is an opportunity for reflection and new insight of the archetypal reality of the greater Self being reborn into personal and contemporary Australian experience.

Introduction to Mythmapping


Eleni Rivers and Dr Robert Hoskin will introduce MythMapping, designed to integrate story/myth with personal, social and political experience.  They will discuss stories from diverse cultures illustrating descent and rebirth, one of the ancient motifs of the Christian and pre-Christian of the incarnation of the Divine in human experience.

 As MythMapping is experiential, participants will be given opportunity to share and reflect on their  own stories  of descent and rebirth.  Such reflection will include creative play with the story, in this case through painting and writing
