The Mythology of Grief, With Kay Todd
Thursday, February 26, 2015
Death shatters the world we have known, presenting a reflective challenge to our normal experiences of meaning. On today’s program, we discover the profound resources myth can offer as we grieve the loss of a loved one and contemplate our own mortality.
With a Ph.D. in mythological studies, Kay Todd is the author of The Gift of Grief. Kay joins host Chaz Wesley to explore how the wellspring of the unconscious can guide us through the necessary encounter with meaninglessness and suffering; how archetypal patterns expressed in myth influence the way we address grief, loss, and trauma; and how changing our myths of grieving can make deep and necessary personal and social changes.
