Jung asked himself this question, “What is myth?”, and realized it was a question he could not answer. Can we answer it? In order to begin, we first have to understand what is meant by myth. Then, we need to consider what the question itself means. Why we even have to ask this question is yet another question. What is the cultural context in which we raise these questions? How do our personal journeys intersect with the climate of our time? Answers to these and other questions will be explored in Dr. Hollis’ presentation as he offers putative approaches to discovering our myth and challenges us to a more thoughtful engagement with our own personal “myth” and journey.
