The Magic of Myth

You know how much I love Squam Art Workshops. I’m a much happier and more confident person for having attended, and writing that feels like an understatement. When I think of founder Elizabeth Duvivier, who over the past two and a half years has become a very dear friend, I often remember a book my sister wrote a report on in elementary school called Magic Elizabeth. That’s how I think of her, because she’s given so many people the space and the love they’ve needed to reconnect with their creativity—to see themselves for who they are, not just who everyone else expects them to be.

It was Elizabeth, too, who encouraged me to dig into the work of Joseph Campbell, and you might remember how much I loved his interview series with Bill Moyers. Joseph Campbell’s most famous words are “follow your bliss,” and the knowledge, inspiration, and friendships I’ve received from Squam have made it much easier for me to act on that advice. You can just imagine how excited I was when Elizabeth told me about her new online seminar, “The Magic of Myth”!

This isn’t just Elizabeth’s take on the hero’s journey—it’s ours. Our lives don’t happen to us, we create them, and I’m so looking forward to discussing myths and archetypes and how we can apply them. I signed up for the seminar today, and if you decide to take it too, let me know in the comments!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
