ID : 81399   
« back to classes page

The hero myths of Greek and Roman Mythology contain gods and goddesses, monsters, strange landscapes, shape-shifters and objects that come to life. These myths also reveal the importance of the hero to every culture in terms of society, spirituality, psychology and archetypes. One aspect of hero myths frequently overlooked is that the hero succeeds only with the aid of the Feminine. Looking at Penelope, Circe, Calypso, Athene and Queen Arete, as well as various nymphs and monsters in Homer's Odyssey, we will explore why the presence of the Feminine is necessary to the success of the hero's endeavors.
