“Psyche & Eros, a myth-telling, Tuesday 11/27, 7:30p, Richardson”
Join us Tuesday, November 27 at 7:30 PM for “Psyche and Eros”, a mythical love story, our next Wicca 101 class presented by Rhys.
The myth of Psyche and Eros is probably one of the most beautiful Greek myths; it has been told and retold in several different versions and it has inspired artists all over the world.
“Myths and symbols are in the language of the soul. A myth helps us to take a situation to heart and know what we must do: if it is to see the truth and act upon it, then the image of Psyche with her sword provides a magic perspective. A symbolic object can then be a talisman that helps us to do what we need to do. Like passing a literal torch, these are rituals that empower us by infusing an act with a deeper meaning. To think and act this way is magical, metaphoric thinking that can call forth the qualities we need from within ourselves and may also tap into sources of help that lie beyond us.” (Jean Shinoda-Bolin).
