When people began to worship the sublimely beautiful mortal maiden Psyche as a goddess, the goddess Aphrodite becaome extremely jealous. So, she bid her son Amor to avenge her and destroy Psyche by making her fall in love with the “vilest of men.”
When entering a myth we enter not just a story but a series of what the mythologist Karl Kerényi called Mythologems – the archetypal elements of the myth. In our work we hope to encounter the deep archetypal elements inherent in myth and allow these to call forth the archetypal forces that govern our own lives, to allow our imagination to image these into our very own stories so we become aware of the myths we live by. Thus our title, Slí na Samhlaíochta (The Way of the Imagination).
