Artemis and Hermes speak to us in New York

New York Open Center hosts two half-day workshops with Thomas Moore on Saturday 6 April 2013.

10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
13WP35M: Becoming an Individual: The Myth of Artemis
Members: $60 Non-members: $75
"... The Greek mythic figure of Artemis inspires love and respect for your own values, vision and style. She embodies aggressive protection of your hopes and potentialities. This workshop considers the many details of her story in support of being a strong, self-possessed person comfortable with your own tastes and thinking. It teaches how to cultivate your 'virgin soul,' your own pristine inner nature and your dignity and value as a person."
2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
13WP39M: Living on the Boundaries: The Myth of Hermes
Members: $60 Non-members: $75
"American life is still influenced by the Puritan founders. Many feel the need to be excessively virtuous and rule-bound. The Greek myth of Hermes offers valuable alternatives, showing ways of being creative and expressive that are more playful than orderly. He turns many accepted values upside down. Both C. G. Jung and James Hillman said that Hermes is absolutely necessary for healing the soul. D. W. Winnicott was another therapist that embodied the values of Hermes. This workshop explores the stories of Hermes as they model a free, imaginative and unusually deep approach to life and work."
