MythBlast | A Community of Inspired Teachers
As we step into February, the Joseph Campbell Foundation is celebrating teaching that breaks open our ideas, challenges our assumptions, and invites us to see the world full of glistening possibility.
More than anything, Joseph Campbell was a teacher. He spent almost forty years teaching undergraduate students at Sarah Lawrence College, and found audiences eager to learn from his first public lecture in 1940 onwards, from the State Department’s Foreign Service Institute, to Cooper Union in New York City, to his intimate conversations with Bill Moyers in The Power of Myth, which reached learners and seekers world wide.
”He freed the boundaries of my mind,” said Nancy Sureck, the class of 1950, who took Mr. Campbell’s class 40 years ago. ”He could travel across centuries, and he could travel across continents. He made us think differently.” NYTimes, 1988
Please come by and share the sources that bring myth to life for you. Introduce us to the teachers that have made you think differently.
Together, we can be a community of inspired teachers.
