The Myth of War will delve into the meaning of war in a warring world – which wars do we fight? It will elaborate on the rudiments and intricacies of war in a conflicted geopolitical world, through images, symbols, myths and parables, and explore why war remains deep-rooted in human civilization and in the unconscious psyche. The seminar will deliberate on how wars have a totalizing effect on the psyche, and how the many expressions of war, from planet restoration, environmental activism, feminine rising to sheer killing and bloodshed in warfronts and borders, have always been part of us, and continue to challenge our inner and outer existence.
