Description:

Join us as Dave Fletcher gives us some “Myth Education” to learn how Tricksters shape the world for better and for worse.

The Trickster is one of the most prevalent and important mythological archetypes from around the world. From Anansi and Coyote to Loki and Zeus, tricksters are credited with both creating and attempting to destroy the world. Why are these figures so ubiquitous and what makes their stories so compelling? And what lessons can they teach us about the world and ourselves?

Meetings are open to the Public
