Purposes and Outcomes

Weary of sitting on the sidelines while the world falls apart? Want to make a positive difference but disinclined to be an activist, politician, or revolutionary? Or, as such, looking for ways to work below the surface?

The Certificate in Applied Mythology provides tools for story-based transformative work in the world. You will learn how to make use of these depth tools on behalf of the causes that speak to you. Applied mythology is an aspect of Deep Education.

Earning the Certificate will enable you to:

- Analyze the mythic structures of current events and pivotal occasions

- Explore the relationship between elements of mythology and deep psychology

- Interpret mythic motifs and images with tools similar to those for dream interpretation

- Join a circle of people passionate about restorying the events of our time toward new forms of Earth-honoring consciousness and cultural and personal renewal.

"Our trouble time of fragmentation, chaos, and systemic breakdown desperately needs the new Kouretes: deep storytellers willing to serve, each uniquely, as Round Table Knights of the World Soul."
--Craig Chalquist, PhD
