In Search of the New Compassionate Male
Ep97: Dennis Slattery on The Green Knight, Moby Dick and More…
A fascinating conversation about the new movie The Green Knight with Dennis Slattery, Author & Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Pacifica Graduate Institute. In our conversation Dennis connects to dots between The Green Knight, Moby Dick, Chaco Canyon, archetypal astrology, and the events affecting our lives today.
Dennis Patrick Slattery, Ph.D., is Distinguished Emeritus Professor in Mythological Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California. He has taught there for the last 26 of his 52 years in the classroom. He offers riting retreats and workshops in the United States and Europe on exploring one’s personal myth through the works of Joseph Campbell and C.G. Jung’s Red Book.
In his 30th published volume, The Way of Myth: Stories’ Subtle Wisdom, Dennis Patrick Slattery reaches back in “Part I: Mining the Myths Anew,” to some earlier essays on classic films and works of literature. He also includes extended meditations on the thought of mythologist Joseph Campbell; on creativity’s hungers; on beliefs as mythic constructs; and on the joys of painting. Many of the essays explore the act of reading and the importance of stories as they relate to one’s personal myth.
