The Mythic Imagination Institute

The Mythic Imagination Institute creates experiences of the mystery and metaphor in myth and story through art, hands-on activity, and cross disciplinary conversation. Our principal method at this time is through conference and performance festivals. In 2004, we held the first Mythic Journeys conference in Atlanta, Georgia. We endeavor to bring together artists, scientists, businesspeople, psychologists, scholars, performers, educators, philosophers, writers, astronauts, farmers, and anyone else would like to be part of it, through the common medium of story. Together we discovered, experience, and discussed narrative, metaphor and myth as a language of understanding each other and our own place and meaning in the world. The purpose of the Mythic Imagination Institute is to connect people to the accumulated wisdom of humankind that lives in stories and mythology.
